    History Detectives [#310] Leisureama Homes/Jim Thorpe Tickets/1667 Land Grant * Leisureama Homes - A Long Island man is the grandson of Andrew Geller, the designer of Leisureama homes. Geller created the model kitchen "Splitnik," used during one of the most famous television moments of the Cold War - the fiery exchange between Nixon and Khrushchev during the "Kitchen Debate" at the American Exhibition in Moscow in 1959. From "Splitnik," Geller later developed the Leisureama home. The contributor has a newspaper advertisement suggesting the Leisureama homes were widely sold in Florida, but so far he has been unable to locate them. HD tries to track down the missing homes, while learning more about this defining moment in cold war history and the influence of leisure on architecture.
    * Jim Thorpe Tickets - A Jamestown, New York, resident was startled to discover a pair of sports tickets in a used book. The tickets, dated 1927, are for a basketball game featuring Jim Thorpe, the legendary Native-American athlete who was known for his 1912 Olympic gold medals and Herculean strengths as a football and baseball player. However, none of his biographers refer to a career as a professional basketball player. HD examines whether Thorpe had an unreported career in a third professional sport, as a basketball player, and uncovers some startling facts about the private life of one of the world's greatest professional athletes.
    * 1667 Land Grant - A Fairfax, Virginia, resident holds a fragment of aged parchment that may be evidence of one of the first revolts against slavery in the Americas. The document appears to be a 1667 land grant to an African-American woman named Christina. The signature on the deed is of General Richard Nicolls, the first governor of New York. HD investigates how an African- American woman - the wife of a former slave - acquired what is now a valuable piece of real estate in downtown Manhattan, referred to in the document as "the land of the blacks."
