Leo Beachy: A Legacy Nearly Lost
June 18, 2012
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.

This episode includes the amazing Beachy collection and Maxine Broadwater's efforts through 2010 to preserve the negatives and make the photos available worldwide.
