Elvis (Items) Live in Vegas

Thousands of items of Elvis Presley memorabilia went on display in Las Vegas on Tuesday as a prelude to an auction to be held in the tourist mecca Oct. 8-10. Among the items on the block are Presley’s Army fatigues, a trunk he used when he served in Germany and a 1959 photo of Presley with Priscilla Beaulieu, the 14-year-old daughter of an Air Force captain. (The teen would eventually become Mrs. Elvis Presley.) Proceeds from the auction will fund Presley Place, a transitional housing development in Presley’s hometown of Memphis.
