Inspire the Present: Bringing History to Life
Friday, March 9, 5:30-7 p.m.
Goldfield Room, 3rd Floor, Lied Library
An implosion. A cloud of dust. Another Las Vegas landmark gone, making way for a new resort, a new landmark, a new chapter for the city. With every change to the city's skyline, people say a piece of Las Vegas history is gone. But the stories and records of these businesses and the people who made them possible are preserved in UNLV University Libraries's Special Collections & Archives. We've assembled a panel of three notable Las Vegans, who often partner with Special Collections & Archives, to discuss how they use historical materials to bring Las Vegas history to life.
Our distinguished panel includes Tom Hawley, Local History Reporter at KSNV-TV/Channel 3, Dr. Michael Green, UNLV Associate Professor of History, and Geoff Schumacher, Director of Content for The Mob Museum.
The event, the third in a series celebrating the 50th anniversary of Special Collections and Archives, is sponsored by the University Libraries and Southern Glazer's Wine and Spirits.
