Administrative History

On October 7, 1982, United States President Ronald Reagan visited the University of Nevada, Reno. This was the first time in the University's history that a sitting President visited the campus and the visit also provided an opportunity for the President to support his party's candidates for office. The GOP held a rally on campus that day, with Lt. Governor candidate Bill Boyd, Attorney General candidate Brian McKay, Secretary of State candidate Belie Williams, Comptroller candidate Darrell Daines, Treasurer candidate Patty Cafferatta, Governor Robert List, Senator Paul Laxalt, U.S. Senate candidate Chic Hecht, and Congress candidate Barbara Vucanovich. (The Office of Information was responsible for university press relations, public affairs programming, promotional publicity, internal information and publications.)
