Treasure Maps

Produced by
Carol Jackson

Glen Creason is the map librarian at the Los Angeles Public Library.  He's often invited to browse through maps left behind when people die, and recently found hundreds of thousands of maps crammed into every corner of an old bungalow. He rented a truck and doubled the library's map collection in a single day. Dick and Glen talked about Jack Renie's mapmaking skills. Find out more about Jack in this web extra.
