Distinguished Kentuckian

(#112) Ed Prichard

A legendary figure at Princeton and Harvard Law School, Ed Prichard possessed an extraordinary intellect and political savvy that led to a series of appointments in Franklin Delano Roosevelt's New Deal administration—all before Prichard turned 30. But in 1948, he was sentenced to six months in federal prison for ballot-stuffing. He struggled with depression for years but emerged to apply his talents to the civil rights movement and education reform in Kentucky. A 1974 KET production.

Trouble with video in Firefox:

This is a known issue with the Window Media Video format.

Windows Media plugin is no longer maintained in Firefox, causing it to stop working.

Solution: Change the Firefox configuration file.
  1. Open a new tab or window.
    In the "Location/URL" bar, type "about:config" and press Enter.
    (The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page will appear. Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page.)
  2. In the "about:config" page search bar, enter:
    "plugins.load_appdir_plugins"
  3. Double click the preference name to change the "value" to true.
  4. Close and restart Firefox. The video should now work once you reopen the page.
    If not, then the WMV plugin may not be installed.
