​​“Eric P. Newman & The Successful Hunt For AUDUBON'S MISSING GROUSE" (25 minutes) In 1824, a young John James Audubon drew -- and presumably sold -- an image of a Heath Hen for Gideon Fairman. It was engraved and the vignette placed on an Obsolete Note of a New Jersey bank. In his diaries, Audubon mentions the image (and the Note) several times. Since then, the image had been lost -- until Eric P. Newman and Robert M. Peck rediscovered it, creating a major story in the worlds of art and natural history!
