“LAS VEGAS — Elvis Presley once told Deana Martin, “They call me the King of Rock and Roll, but your dad is the King of Cool.”
From his solo career to his appearances with the Rat Pack and his infamous Celebrity Roasts, Dean Martin made the Las Vegas stage his home. Known for his smooth and effortless style, Martin has become a timeless Las Vegas icon. Dean Martin would have turned 100 on June 7. We celebrate the “King of Cool” with this tribute featuring photos and video from the Las Vegas News Bureau archives. In addition, the News Bureau has produced an exhibition in the Las Vegas Convention Center featuring exclusive photographs from its archives and rare Las Vegas memorabilia.”

From the About page: “The 1930s are a fascinating moment to study food. Examining how ordinary people bought, cooked, ate, and thought about food can reveal previously hidden aspects of American life during a time of vast economic and social change. What America Ate’s website invites users to interact with and enhance the historical sources, while the digital archive allows users to approach American food in the Depression from three distinct angles.”
