Working at Harold’s Club

Illuminating Reno’s Divorce Industry
Information

Chris Beck wrote to Mella Harmon about her experiences as a dealer in Harold's Club, where she began working in 1949 while awaiting a divorce and decided to stay. She met and married Charles Beck, and it was the "best of times" for them in Reno where they lived until 1959.
