Dawn Y. Lappin (1940-2019) was a wild horse activist working in Nevada and the American West during the 1970s-2010s. The collection include correspondence, reports, maps, audio-video, and other materials related to wild horse management, conservation, and activism. Also included are records from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and records from the Nevada Wild Horse Commission.

The collection contains scanned reports, correspondence, and other materials covering the history of wild horse conservation and the activity of the Nevada Wild Horse Commission from the 1970s to the late 2000s.
