This collection is comprised primarily of publicity and promotional materials documenting the Caesars Palace Hotel and Casino Resort and the Circus Circus Hotel and Casino Resort. Both resorts were the brainchild of hotel and casino developer Jay Sarno, and there is a small amount of material on Sarno in the collection such as newspaper clippings and a press release. The collection includes property ephemera, magazine and newspaper clippings, informational brochures from the two properties and press kits. There is a small amount of correspondence but none that was actually composed by Sarno. It also includes a rare prospectus and stock offerings on Sarno's never-realized Grandissimo Hotel and Casino resort that was to have been built on Interstate 15 to the west of the Las Vegas Strip.
