Out Of The Box: Time Capsule Opening says
Chief Archivist Matt Wrbican, Cataloguer Erin Byrne, and former Warhol assistant Benjamin Liu open "Time Capsule 71," one of Warhol’s 610 Time Capsules that is filled with books, a few of which are displayed in the exhibition "Warhol By the Book."

Warhol was an avid collector of art, Fiestaware, photographs, newspapers, dental molds, and especially the minutiae of his daily life. In 1974, Warhol began filling the first of his Time Capsules with source material, correspondence, and clothing. The Time Capsules reflect more than Warhol’s personal life; they act as an insightful snapshot of the time and contain a wealth of information for researchers.
