In his 25-year journalism career, with stints at both dailies and at the defunct Las Vegas CityLife, and over the course of two books (Sun, Sin & Suburbia, 2010; and Howard Hughes: Power, Paranoia & Palace Intrigue, 2008), Schumacher has endured as a stalwart authority on oft-forgotten chapters of Nevada history. In his role as the director of content at the Mob Museum, he continues his legacy of not only preserving local history, but also keeping it accessible and relevant to the masses. The Mob Museum, 300 Stewart Ave., 702-229-2734, TheMobMuseum.org.
