Face of the Past

The Special Collections department the University of Nevada, Reno (the university I'm attending) is doing a really neat historical project with a modern twist. This year they launched Facebook sites for two UNR alumna Joe McDonald and Leola Lewis. They are approaching the project from the point of view of these two historical students using pictures and comments about the the early 20th century in Nevada. It's really exciting to see something as fun and quirky as this coming from a department you usually associate with just books and traditional research.


If you love learning from the past and you want to do it in a fun, modern way you should definitely check them out. There are some wonderful historic photos courtesy of Special Collections as well as the ability to have questions answered by knowledgeable people.
