Dateline Reno: The Fight of the Century

  • Description
Commemorating the 100th anniversary of "The Prize Fight of the Century", RGJ reporters Ray Hagar and Guy Clifton have compiled a recollection of the event through profiles of the key figures; stories, photos and illustrations from Reno's two daily newspapers, the Reno Evening Gazette and the Nevada State Journal; and interviews with boxing and Nevada historians. The title fight between Jack Johnson and James Jeffries marked one of the most significant events in Nevada's history, and in the history of race relations in the United States.
