Anyone who has ever wondered where Dorothy's ruby slippers, the limo that JFK was riding in when he was assassinated or Michael Jackson's sequinned glove are housed will find the answers here. Hundreds of items from America's pop culture past - its history, its sports, its movies, crime and TV - are listed in locations as famed, diverse and downright odd as the Smithsonian Institute, the Basketball Hall of Fame, the Sing Sing Prison Museum and the Museum of Pez Memorabilia. Includes George Washington's wooden teeth, the piano from Casablance and John Wilkes Booth's thorax.
Chris Epting is the author of Elvis Presley Passed Here, James Dean Died Here and Marilyn Monroe Dyed Here (all available from Turnaround). He lives in Huntington Beach, California.
