 Collection
Identifier: AC 0687
Collection contains materials reflecting Evalyn Titus Dearmin's professional work with Paiute and other Native American languages and Indian education. These materials, collected by Dearmin in the 1970s, were used while she taught in the University of Nevada, Reno College of Education for an ethnic heritage project grant from the federal government.

Additionally, the collection contains a number of photographs collected by Dearmin and while she attended the University of Nevada, Reno in the 1950s. Nearly all of the photographs were taken from 1955-1956 by Wayne Trewitt while she served as editor of the Artemesia, UNR's yearbook. One CD of Wolves' Frolic songs is also included. The CD is a copy of the original 45rpm album that was recorded in 1956 by the university band under the direction of Felton Hickman. It was intended to be distributed with the 1956 yearbook but was not completed in time. Dearmin made copies of the album and gave it to classmates at the 2006 Golden Reunion.
