Abstract:

Each interviewee was selected for his or her unique background and experiences. Interviews address topics such as earliest memories of Atlantic City; important events in Atlantic City (Miss America Pageant, fires, storms, World War II); places and businesses in Atlantic City (Steel Pier, Traymore, Marlborough-Blenheim, Dennis, Fralinger's Salt Water Taffy, 500 Club, 1 Atlantic Ocean, White House Sub Shop, Gormley Funeral Home, Fischer Flowers, Atlantic City schools); prominent people in Atlantic City (Nucky Johnson, Dean Martin, Jerry Lee Lewis, Hap Farley, other frequent celebrities and performers and local politicians); predictions for the future of Atlantic City in the casino era. Each interview was recorded on standard audiotapes and transcribed to paper by local transcriptionists. Interviews are approximately 60-90 minutes in length.
