Harrah's 1962 Scenic Calendar Art

I suppose today that some Harrah's staffers would be sent out in Las Vegas and neighboring parts to take photos with their mobiles. Then these photos would be sorted into the twelve best and put in a promotional calendar.

But in the early 1960s, Harrah's hired a professional artist to depict the life in Vegas and Nevada. Here is a complete scan of Harrah's Scenic Calendar.

I don't know the name of the artist, nor is s/he credited. If you have a good guess, please let me know! My thanks to Robert Spillane for these amazing scans!

Drawings are all done by Ben Wicks, a famous illustrator. I have an original calendar citing him.
