The UNLV University Libraries Special Collections and Archives launched the Building Las Vegas collecting initiative in 2016 to collect and preserve evidence about this dramatic growth. This focused effort ensures future students and researchers -- urban planners, geographers, architects, historians, sociologists, and others -- can study and learn from our unique built environment. Stefani Evans, a UNLV doctoral student in history, is Project Manager.

CGR is Looking for Pit Bosses

By David G. Schwartz on May 21, 2015 1:40 PM | Permalink

The Center for Gaming Research is currently conducting an oral history project focusing on current and former pit bosses. We are conducting approximately 45-minute long interviews with men and women who have worked as pit bosses (or are still working in the position).

The interviews are part of a project that seeks to capture the voices of those who make Las Vegas the destination it is: casino employees. The interviews will be transcribed, edited, and published; selections from interviews will be featured in a book to be published by the UNLV Gaming Press later this year. If the project is successful, other positions will be featured in future projects. 

If you are a current or former pit boss and would like to be interviewed as part of the project, please contact CGR Director Dave Schwartz at or 702 895-2242. This is your chance to share your thoughts on the job, reflect on the casino industry, and let the world know what it is like to walk in your shoes. 

This project is funded by a grant from the UNLV Libraries Dean's Associates.
