Deceased Man's Treasured Maps Go To L.A. Library

A Los Angeles real estate agent clearing out the house of a man who died found tens of thousands of maps, stuffed in cabinets and closets, even inside a stereo. One was from 1592, the L.A. Times reports. The collection of the late John Feathers has now been donated to the L.A. Central Library — more maps than the library collected in 100 years.
