UNLV @ 50 Oral History Project

"The University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) marked its 50th anniversary in 2007. UNLV is so young that it was possible to record stories of many "firsts." This project peers into many campus units as well as into early student life. One can learn the story of the school’s colors, mascot, and about classes that began before the first building was erected. Special Collections and Archives' Oral History Research Center conducted over 60 interviews with faculty, staff, and alumni to celebrate this milestone."
