The Nevada Desert Experience (NDE) Collection at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas is composed of files from NDE officers and activists. The collection documents the activities and efforts of NDE members in their efforts to halt nuclear testing and abolish nuclear weapons. Comprised of correspondence, memoranda, meeting minutes and agenda, financial records, newspapers, magazines, newsletters, brochures, pamphlets, press releases, legislation, recommendations, and general information, the collection showcases the organizational abilities of the NDE and the groups hearty commitment to ending nuclear testing. Due to the groups headquarters in Las Vegas, the collection provides excellent case studies of significant changes in the post-World War II American environmental movement, notably the increased acceptance of the worth of desert lands.
