The University of Nevada, Reno library has received a $1.7 million bequest from a Reno woman.The bulk of the late Betty Heaston’s gift to the Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center will be used to establish an endowment to provide an ongoing source of funds for its programs, acquisitions and personnel.
The Vermont native moved to Reno in 1960 with her late husband, Jack, an engineer who invented the early rolling-cage equipment and secure ticket system for Keno games. She was the bookkeeper for their business.
