The museum and the Las Vegas News Bureau are jointly sponsoring “Undiscovered Vegas” on July 6, an evening at which they will present unlabeled but interesting photographs from their archives in hopes that audience members will be able to provide names of people depicted, as well as info on each photo’s context.

     The Friends are seeking volunteers to staff an informational table about our organization at “Undiscovered Vegas.” If you are available, please send an email to

     The event starts at 7 p.m. at the Clark County Library, 1401 E. Flamingo Road.





     Thank you to all who helped staff the Friends’ informational booth at the genealogy fair held June 11 at the Paseo Verde Library in Henderson. Pictured are two who volunteered: Barbara Ciocca, at left, and Margurite Walton.

     Insect scientist John Dooley, retired from the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, enthralled attendees of the Friends’ June 15 meeting by talking about his volunteer work at the museum, which entails identifying and organizing the museum’s extensive butterfly collection.
