University of Nevada Summer School Diaries 1912-1914

About

In the summer of 2020, the University of Nevada Reno conducted its first summer session off campus, with remote teaching, due to the coronavirus pandemic. 108 years earlier, in 1912, the university held its very first summer session, on campus, but with abundant extra-curricular excursions to cultural and recreational sites in Northern Nevada. The first summer students were in the teacher training program. Education students and teachers from all over the state lived in Manzanita Hall and kept their own record of the summer school experience in a shared diary. The summer school students in 1913 and 1914 continued the diary. Special Collections in the University Libraries began a crowdsourcing transcription project in the summer of 2012 as part of an exhibit celebrating the centennial of the summer school. We would now like to complete the transcription in 2020-21, during another historic period for the University. See an article and video for more information. Please contact Special Collections if you are interested in transcribing diary pages or editing pages that were transcribed earlier.
