Coll #: MS-00890
Date: 1987-1993
Extent: 1 box (1.28 cubic feet, 1.08 linear feet)
The Valerie Pida Trust Records (1987-1993) is comprised of records documenting efforts by Edward "Ted" Quirk, an attorney and a board member of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) Foundation, to establish a trust for Valerie Pida, a UNLV student who had been battling Hodgkin's disease since the age of 13. Pida was a student at UNLV from 1985 to 1991 and was a cheerleader for the Runnin' Rebels basketball team. Quirk set up the Valerie Pida Trust in order to raise funds to provide financial support for Pida's medical expenses and for her family. The records include correspondence, newspaper clippings, financial statements, and receipts that document the establishment and activities of the foundation which was operational until 1993. Contents in this collection are closed for seventy-five years from the latest date found on an individual record to protect privacy and confidentiality. Access is restricted under provisions of state or federal law. This collection will be open for research use on January 1, 2068.
