~~~~This is what started it all!~~~~ Alexander Cushing’s bid for the 1960 Winter Olympic Games began when he saw an article about The City of Reno’s Olympic bid. Well the extremely rare Reno Olympic Submission Bid Book has been found and was donated by the Dwyer Family. This artifact was found by the antique book collector and is the only one they have known to exist. The book is leather bound, in great condition and contains all of the plans for the Olympics including the planned conversion and use of Slide Mountain for the main venue. Thanks so much Dwyer family for your generous donation and for understanding the value to the museum. The book will be photographed and then will be on display before the upcoming Olympics.
