Administrative History

The University of Nevada, Reno, has conducted two centennial celebrations. In 1874, the University Preparatory School opened in Elko, Nevada. In 1885, the State Legislature voted to move the university to Reno. Construction of its first building, Morrill Hall, began on September 12, 1885. A centennial celebration for the University was conducted in 1974, in conjunction with the inauguration of Max Milam as University President. On September 12, 1985, the University observed the centennial of its Reno campus.

Arrangment

The records are arranged by topic in nine folders.

Technical Requirements Note

Audio, computer files, and/or video items may not be available for listening/viewing on demand due to their older genre formats.

Immediate Source of Acquisition

The audio tape of the inauguration/convocation was transferred to Archives from the University's Audio-Visual Communication Center in June 1975. The frisbee was transferred to Archives from the Office of the President in 2013.
