Biographical / Historical Note

Newspaper journalist, teacher, scholar and political activist James W. Hulse was born in Pioche, Nevada, on June 4, 1930. He received a Harold's Club Scholarship and obtained his BA in Journalism from the University of Nevada in 1952 and his MA in History in 1958. Hulse liked covering political events and often wrote articles about Nevada's history. That love of history led him to earning a Ph.D. at Stanford University in 1961, after which he was an instructor at Central Washington State College in Ellensburg from 1961-62. He joined the faculty at the University of Nevada, Reno, in 1962 where he remained until his retirement in 1997. A political activist, he was a member of the American Civil Liberties Union and served on the Nevada Commission for Equal Rights of Citizens from 1963-65. He also participated in the Citizens Committee for a Nuclear Test Ban in 1963. Author of many books on Nevada, he was inducted into the Nevada Writers Hall of Fame in 1997.
