The Oral History Project of Las Vegas Showgirls began with the work of Joyce Marshall Moore in the mid to late 1990s. As part of the project, Women in Gaming and Entertainment directed by Joanne Goodwin, Joyce interviewed a series of ex-showgirls. The Oral History Research Center added several interviews to Joyce’s initial list.
We are presenting a sample of the project that includes the Kim Sister’s Sook-Ja Kim interviewed by our own Myoung-Ja Lee Kwon; Betty Bunch interviewed by Joyce Moore; Carol Baker interviewed by Nancy Davis; and Virginia James and Anna Bailey interviewed by Claytee D. White.
Enjoy the beauty and artistry of these captivating women.
