This episode features the more scholarly side of the history of the Showgirl. My guest, Su Kim Chung, Head of Public Services, talks about her role in the preservation of the Showgirl legacy for the UNLV library Special Collections and Archives in Las Vegas.
We discuss a bit of the history of the Showgirl, what types of documents are being archived at the library and who killed the Las Vegas Showgirl. Listen now for insights from a Showgirl Superfan about the Vegas icon.

Some of the papers that have been donated to the archives include production notes, costume sketches and news clippings from creators of the Showgirl productions in Las Vegas, like Donn Arden and Jerry Jackson.
