The Los Angeles Public Library is the recipient of a map collection found in the home of John Feathers, a retired hospital dietitian who died in February. Map librarian Glen Creason, who estimates the collection includes 1 million maps, received the maps from a real estate agent who was tasked with preparing Feathers' home for demolition. "He has every type of map imaginable. There's a 1956 pictorial map of Lubbock, Texas. He's got a 1942 Jack Renie Street Guide of Los Angeles," Creason said.
