The word “kitschy” is to Vegas as “the Big Apple” is to New York City. The word encompasses the glitzy – at times, outlandish – personality the city developed during the last seven decades. UNLV Libraries’ Special Collections Department recently received a collection that recalls a time when kitschy and classy overlapped and showgirls performed on ice skates.

Thirty years from now people searching for information about Nevada’s political history will not be let down when they come to UNLV Libraries. Currently, The Libraries maintains papers of two former U.S. senators, Howard Cannon and Chic Hecht, as well as those from a number of Southern Nevada state legislators and items from former Congressman Jim Bilbray. The most recent addition is that of Congresswoman Berkley, who has also generously donated her congressional papers to UNLV Libraries.

Congresswoman Shelley Berkley, who served Nevada from Jan. 3, 1999 to Jan. 3, 2013, donated 42 boxes – approximately 45 linear feet – consisting of paper legislative records such as correspondence, documents and reports; videos of her appearances; certificates, awards, plaques and various mementos; and a number of noteworthy photos.
