- Lepers of Buzzards Bay, The
- Program Description
This documentary tells, for the first time on television, the story of a leper colony maintained on Penikese Island in Buzzards Bay from 1905-1921. It chronicles an authentic but unsung medical hero, Dr. Frank Parker, who maintained the dignity of his patients in the face of bigotry. Hosted by historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, the story resonates in this era of AIDS.
