Bob Nylen, curator of the Nevada State Museum, will present Remembering the Great War at 10 a.m. June 26. Nylen’s lecture ties in with a new exhibit that recently opened at the museum and features a collection of photographs and memorabilia from World War l. Nylen will share the story behind the photos, which were acquired by a local history buff at a garage sale. Nylen knows who the pictures were taken by, where they were taken and information about each one. However, how the photos came from France to a Carson City garage sale is a mystery.
