John Mackay and the Mackay School of Mines

John Mackay and the Mackay School of Mines
University of Nevada, Reno, USA. Now the Delamare Library, which holds UNR's science and engineering collections. Mackay ("mackey") was one of the handful who made a fortune on the silver of the Comstock, and left much of his fortune to found the School of Mines. Alas, MSM was reorganized out of existence in the early 00s, the departments now split among the schools of science and engineering. And it was the only part of UNR that had a degree of international recognition--not the brightest administrative decision!
