Daniel Bigelow received an old-time gift from his grandmother that is possibly a part of American history.
A twin-reflex camera bore a puzzle piece inside that the "History Detectives" television series found interesting.
The PBS show, which researches antiques to determine if they have historical significance, will show the search for the origins of Bigelow's camera at 7 p.m. Aug. 30 on KUED Channel 7.
"When we got it for Christmas, we opened it up and found this note inside that said 'Marion Carpenter, White House Photographer,' " said Daniel Bigelow, of South Ogden, in the episode.
Bigelow declined to be interviewed by the Standard-Examiner, but in the show he said he started researching Carpenter and found that she was the first female member of the White House Press Corps -- a group of journalists and photographers who follow the president of the United States. She started during Harry S. Truman's terms.
