This educational kids tv series had actor/ dialectician/ producer and scriptwriter Joseph Early portraying famous men from history.

Lee, Dr. Alexander Graham Bell, Marco Polo, Chief Sitting Bull, Capt. Christopher Columbus, and Capt. Miles Standish.

Early would talk with a group of kids as the famous man that he was playing and the group would not only learn about the accomplishments of these persons, they would see them as kindly and fun loving people. More often than not the shows were done on locations such as Philadelphia, Pa. and Plymouth Rock, Ma.

Mr. Early would ultilize his concept of portraying famous men from history on a more adult tv series, "Meeting Of The Minds!" with Mr.& Mrs. Steve And Jayne Meadows Allen and other Actors on PBS TV in 1989.
