The Nevada Appeal has a front page tribute today to Bill Dolan, who died this week at age 83. Bill wrote the “Past Pages” column for the Appeal, digging through old issues to find out what the big stories were 20, 50, and 100 years ago. He’d been doing the column ever since 1947! Can you imagine? So undoubtedly most of the dusty old papers he was digging through had his own byline in them somewhere.
They also left the six inches where Bill’s column was supposed to appear blank as a memorial.
