Segment title.
John Quenten Feller, professor/scholar ; Morley Safer, interviewer.
Aired October, 1992.
This is a segment from the television program "60 Minutes" with Morley Safer and the case of John Quenten Feller, college professor and thief. Feller was convicted of stealing more than 150 objects from private collections and museums including the Peabody, Winterthur, Ashmolean in Oxford, Wadsworth Atheneaum. Safer's treatment is sympathetic, with emphasis on Feller's need to possess art objects even when they belong to someone else. Although glass is mentioned, Chinese export porcelain is highlighted, and Feller's relationship with The Peabody Museum is detailed. Includes interviews with Feller himself from the Federal Penitentiary at Allenwood, PA.
