2019 C-Span City Tours – History of Gambling Interview
History of Gambling
The American Gaming Archives at the Nevada Historical Society tells the history of gambling through archival materials as well as artifacts. Howard Herz, curator of Gaming, showed items in the collection including cheating devices and slot machines.
C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2019 LCV Cities Tour” in Reno, Nevada, from April 6-12, 2019, to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Charter cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on Book TV on C-SPAN2.
