The Museum of Gaming History is growing and we need your support. The MoGH came to life in 2014 with the showing of exhibits at the El Cortez Hotel and the Mob Museum. We are working on showing several new exhibits in the coming year. The MoGH needs your support to fund these projects. We seek to grow the hobby by expanding interest in Gaming History.

Mike Quinlivan
Mike retired in early 2011 from over 30 years of accounting and finance positions for various manufacturing companies. "Captain Q", as he is known in the Club, held the position of Treasurer for the CCA for 5 years from 2002-2007, and has been a member of the club for 22 years, becoming a life member in 2002. Mike was also the CCA Claims Director from 2010 to 2017. Both Mike, and his wife Corni, co-chaired the 2012, 2013 and 2014 annual Conventions that were held at the South Point Hotel and Casino.

Mike was appointed to the MoGH board by the CCA board in 2008 and became Chairman in 2013. He was instrumental in partnering the MoGH with the El Cortez, the Mob Museum, the Neon Museum and the Plaza Hotel. Mike retired from the MoGH board in April 2015, but he returned to the MoGH Board in November 2018 and was elected as Chairman in December 2018.

Mike is an ardent believer that gaming memorabilia and histories should be preserved for the education and enjoyment for future generations. He is THE collector of Flamingo Capri memorabilia. His exhibit of Flamingo Capri memorabilia was recently showcased at the Nevada State Museum and is currently on exhibition at Spinettis Gaming Supply in downtown Las Vegas.

Mike and his wife Corni moved to Bend, Oregon in 2012, relocating from Southern California. Their son Sean moved to Bend in 2014 and their daughter Sarah moved to Portland in 2015.
