First Weddings

An early 1930s Southern Nevada wedding was held at the home of Mrs. Mina Stewart in Las Vegas. On Saturday evening, November 5, 1932 Miss Elva Frampton married Dean W. Pulsipher. The bride wore a gown of white satin

and lace and carried a bouquet of bride’s roses. After the ceremony the guests enjoyed dancing and refreshments. The Pulsiphers made their home in Eldorado Canyon where the groom was employed. They later moved to Boulder City. In 1968 Pulsipher retired from Hoover Dam after more than thirty years’ employment as an electrician.

The terrace of the Boulder Dam Hotel was the scene of a wedding on May 25, 1939. Amelia Earhardt’s widower, George Palmer Putnam, married Jean-Marie Cosighy James (a Beverly Hills divorcee). Putnam was an American publisher, author, and explorer. He was a friend of Glover Ruckstell, the millionaire head of Grand Canyon - Boulder Dam Tours with interest in the Hotel. Earhardt disappeared in 1937 on a flight around the world. Earhardt was declared dead on January 5, 1939.
