The Showgirl
gave me confidence

Showgirl's Life Podcast | Ep. 14 The Showgirl gave me confidence with special guest Su Kim Chung

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.
