    Leo Beachy: A Legacy Nearly Lost
    In the early 1900s, Beachy took unforgettable photographs of life in Western Maryland, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Most of his precious glass plate negatives were destroyed in 1927. But when 2,800 plates surfaced in recent years, his elderly niece began a mission to preserve her uncle's legacy. This episode includes the amazing Beachy collection and Maxine Broadwater's efforts through 2010 to preserve the negatives and make the photos available worldwide.
