"Detroit, Mich." (Hour Three) - ANTIQUES ROADSHOW is in Detroit, Michigan, as host Mark L. Walberg and appraiser Eric Silver travel to Saarinen House at Cranbrook Academy of Art to discuss renowned architect and designer Eliel Saarinen.

Highlights include a Charles Schulz signed letter and drawing of his beloved “Peanuts” character Linus; letters from Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud discussing Russian ballet dancer Vaslav Nijinsky, found tucked inside a book; and two etchings, one by Edward Hopper and one by John Sloan, that were a surprise gift to the owner in the 1970s and are now valued at $105,000.
