But Greenberg couldn't bring himself to do that, especially after he read a recent Los Angeles Times article about the Central Library's map collection. The small cottage contained roughly one million maps. Instead, he invited the Central Library's map librarian, Glen Creason, to Mount Washington to look at the trove.
Creason called the find unbelievable. "I think there are at least a million maps here," he said. "This dwarfs our collection — and we've been collecting for 100 years."
