Nevada tribe displays 80-year-old photo collection

A rare collection of photos from the 1920s and 1930s is being dedicated by the Fallon Paiute-Shoshone Tribe of Nevada on Saturday.

The collection of about 30 photos belonged to Harry Sampson, a former chairman and founder of the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony. They ended up in the hands of his son, Clayton Sampson, a graphic artist who made prints, identified and cataloged the images.

The photos capture a number of tribal elders in their youth. Many still remember the events surrounding them, said the director of the senior center, where the photos will be on permanent display.
