We mourn the passing of former Senator Harry Reid and offer our deepest condolences to his family. He was a champion for the state of Nevada and our citizens for many years. In 1998, the University of Nevada Press was honored to work with the Senator on his book, Searchlight: The Camp That Didn’t Fall, which offers a rich and vivid historical look at his birthplace and boyhood home. Learn more about both Senator Reid and Searchlight on our website at https://www.unpress.nevada.edu/books/?isbn=9780874177534. (The author in front of his boyhood home in Searchlight, ca. 1945.
