Bernard Sless Collection

The Bernard Sless Collection has a vast assortment of materials that explores the development of casinos in Atlantic City from its inception up to 1993.

Born in Atlantic City, Bernard Sless saw the oncoming casinos to his city as an opportunity to record history. He became deeply involved in the industry by becoming President of the Casino Research Information Bureau, and from his involvement collected information about the casinos to the time of his death in 1993.

Several of the reports are digitized and may be found in the Digital Collection.
