    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."

    History Detectives [#407] Survivor Camera/Alcoholics Anonymous Letter/Tallahassee Mystery Cross * Survivor Camera: A woman in Boynton Beach, Florida has an antique camera she inherited from her uncle, a Polish Jew who survived the Holocaust. Adolf Fingrut stayed behind when his family members left Poland in the 1920's. His niece wants to know which of two conflicting family stories is true: did Uncle Adolf survive the Holocaust by going into hiding with the help of his gentile girlfriend, or did he take photographs for the Nazis with this camera? During World War II, some Jewish photographers faced the horrific dilemma of working with the Nazis in documenting their atrocities or going to the death camps. HD will be in New York to investigate how Adolf Fingrut kept one step ahead of death and shed light on the existential nightmare of survival during wartime.
    * Alcoholics Anonymous Letter: A man from Laurel, Maryland owns a mysterious letter that was written in 1942. It's a tribute addressed to his grandmother on the occasion of his grandfather Herbert Wallace's death, acknowledging Mr. Wallace's support for the organization Alcoholics Anonymous. "We of the A.A. Group have never had a better friend, nor a stauncher one, than Herb when the going was hard, " the note states. It is signed by a man named Bill Wilson. The contributor does not believe that his grandfather was an alcoholic, so is curious to learn how the supposedly sober, well-heeled customs attorney was involved in the early days of one of the most miraculous social movements of the modern era. HD searches New York's Westchester County, Brooklyn and Manhattan for personal insight into a movement that has changed the lives of millions worldwide and helped shape society's attitudes about alcoholism.
    * Tallahassee Mystery Cross: About 15 years ago, archeologists at the Mission San Luis in Tallahassee, Florida made an astonishing discovery. In the process of excavating several hundred bodies at the site of this 17th century Spanish mission, they unearthed a beautiful and undamaged glass-like cross. The current Chief of the Apalachee Tribe says his ancestors once lived near the mission, but fled when British forces raided in the early 1700s. He wants to confirm whether the cross was made centuries ago by his own ancestors. HD journeys to Florida to examine the Spanish efforts to proselytize among native tribes and explore the fusing of native and Christian ideologies and symbols into a unique version of New World Catholicism.
