More Info:

MAVERICKS OF MEDICINE takes a look at the spectacular estates of three pioneers of medicine. J.K. Lily Jr. Helped Eli Lily & Company become one of the world's largest companies. The two men specialized in the manufacturing and marketing of such life-saving drugs as insulin and penicillin. J.K.'s success was rewarded with his incredible country estate just outside of Indianapolis, Indiana. The Miles Medical Company became famous for such over-the-counter drugs as Alka Seltzer and One-A-Day Vitamins. At the turn of the century, marketing genius A.R. Beardsley helped create a huge demand for the companies' products and in turn, became a wealthy man. His magnificent Beaux Arts Castle in Elkhart, Indiana was a testament to that success. Brothers Charles and William Mayo made the legendary Mayo Clinic one of the most respected medical facilities and research centers in the world to escape from the pressures of his hectic work schedule, Charles Mayo designed and built his own sprawling country estate in Rochester, Minnesota. Their Medical expertise and advances have saved the lives of millions and there is perhaps no better tribute to their legacy than these great castles of the MAVERICKS OF MEDICINE.
