Jane Ann Morrison’s Monday column was unclear about Claudine and Shelby Williams being the first to open a buffet on the Las Vegas Strip. In her oral history, Claudine Williams said the first Las Vegas Strip buffet was started at their Silver Slipper Casino. A misplaced clause in the column incorrectly made it sound like she was referring to the Holiday Casino. However, historians credit the late Herb McDonald for starting the first Las Vegas Strip buffet, starting with a “chuck wagon” of mostly cold cuts at the El Rancho Vegas in 1946.
