Special Collections will be open for all your research needs on the Nevada Day holiday Friday, October 28th. President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed Nevada to be a state on October 31, 1864, although the commemorative "Nevada Day" has been celebrated instead on the last Friday in October in recent years. Above, from our UNLV University Libraries Collection on Goldfield, Nevada (MS-00010), take a look at secretary M. E. Blanchard's notes on the Nevada Day festivities of the Goldfield Women's Club in 1908. The document is a good example of the many charming treasures awaiting discovery among our vast and varied manuscript collections.
