Montana's Dimple Knees Sex Scandal
1:30 PM
Montana Historical Society (east of the Capitol)
Description:
Montana's Dimple Knees Sex Scandal: 1960s Prostitution, Payoffs and Politicians. Author talk and book signing with John Kuglin. Once a prostitute in the old mining town of Butte, Beverly Snodgrass later became a madam running two of the Mining City’s most popular brothels. She fell deeply in love with a crooked politician, whom she nicknamed “Dimple Knees.” When corrupt cops in uniform came to her businesses, it usually wasn’t to serve and protect but rather to collect payoffs. Butte is sometimes described as a town that “drinks her liquor straight,” but things never were the same after Beverly told her story to a newspaper reporter. In his new book, that reporter, John Kuglin, recounts the scandal that rocked The Richest Hill on Earth and for a time made Dimple Knees the most famous name in Montana.
