Guru Road (aka Dooby Lane) was created by DeWayne "Dooby" Williams (b. 1918, d. 1995). (Note that the 1940 Census has him born in 1919)
- Pulitzer Prize winning poet Gary Snyder visited Guru Road and wrote: discovered a path / of carved stone inscriptions tucked into the sagebrush / "Stomp out greed." / "The best things in life are not things." / words placed by an old desert sage. Snyder went on to create a book based on Williams' words that included photographs by UNR students and faculty.
