    3-D Cuban Missile Crisis/Amos 'n' Andy Record/Women's Suffrage Painting
    A woman in Portland, Oregon has a portable projection screen that may have helped save the Free World. It came her way with a letter stating that in 1962, it was borrowed from a club of 3-D photography enthusiasts in Dayton, Ohio, to show President John F. Kennedy the aerial spy photos that helped him resolve the Cuban Missile Crisis. Is it possible that, as the world faced nuclear Armageddon, the U.S. Air Force turned to an amateur club to help identify Russian missiles? This program also reveals the true stories behind what could be an early Amos 'n' Andy record and a painting with potential ties to women's suffrage.
