USS Arizona

Perhaps the most moving contribution TIYL made came in 1958, when the show traveled to Hawaii to present the life of Rear Admiral Samuel G. Fuqua, the last man to leave the sinking USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. The show's opening was broadcast from a wooden platform built over the sunken hull of the ship, and Edwards' plea for funds for a permanent memorial yielded seed money of over $1.2 million in today's dollars.
