"Bonanza" The Phillip Diedesheimer Story (TV Episode 1959) Poster

Trivia

This story's events were inspired by the real story of the German-born American immigrant engineer Philip Deidesheimer (1832-1916). Diedesheimer developed his square set timbering system for the Comstock Lode's Ophir Mine in Virginia City, Nevada in 1860. And just as portrayed in the story, Diedesheimer chose not to patent his revolutionary and life-saving innovation in mining.
