From Nevada Today:
The University of Nevada, Reno's Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center is opening a new exhibit, Reflections on Pyramid Lake, celebrating the history of the lake and the people who have called it home. The exhibit, opening with a special presentation at 7 p.m., Wednesday, March 25, will run through mid-September 2015 and feature a variety of paintings, photographs and other artifacts such as cradleboards, baskets, pelican eggs and a rattlesnake from Anaho Island. Items in the exhibit are from Special Collections & University Archives and other museums and individuals throughout campus and the community.
"People will come away from this exhibit with a new interest and broader understanding of Pyramid Lake and the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe, including the battle for water rights," Peggy McDonald, the exhibit curator, said.
Marking the exhibit opening will be a presentation by Bernard Mergen, author and professor emeritus at George Washington University. Mergen spent much of his childhood on the shores of the lake and returns frequently. His presentation will focus on Pyramid Lake history and personal reminiscences.
