Nevada miners' stories sought RENO -- The University of Nevada Oral History Program (UNOHP) is searching for miners who are interested in participating in a statewide oral history project on mining. The objective is to develop a comprehensive compilation of the issues, changes and challenges which have shaped Nevada's mining industry. Those interested in being interviewed or have information should contact Vikki Ford, project coordinator, at (702) 784- 6932 or at UNOHP, University of Nevada, Reno, Mail Stop 324, Reno, NV 89557-0099. "We want to interview miners who can recall all types of mining and milling experiences from the 1930s through the 1980s here in Nevada," Ford said. Once the project is designed, the UNOHP will begin a three-phase project of interviews. The UNOHP has a collection of more than 60,000 pages of oral history transcription. Through tape-recorded inter- views of people with historically significant experiences, the UNOHP is building an eye-witness record of Nevada's past.
