Ephemera PDF Print

The Nevada Historical Society has a large collection of ephemera that is organized under the heading Print Collection.  Ephemera is printed material that was created for an event or everyday use with no intention of the item being kept or preserved, yet it provides a unique snapshot of a place and time.  Ephemera incorporates a wide range of materials. 

A few examples of the many varied items in the Nevada Historical Society Print Collection are: theater programs and tickets, restaurant menus, political broadsides, matchbooks, posters, casino literature, business advertisements, to name a few.

If you have materials that you would like to donate, please contact Michael Maher at 775.666.1190 ext. 227 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
