In a segment of the Martha Stewart Living television program broadcast in October 1999 and rerun in December, home decorating and entertainment author Martha Stewart visited the George Glazer Gallery for an entertaining demonstration of interesting, ingenious or unusual antique globes, including:

• The first dated American globe, 1811, by James Wilson, the father of American globe making
• Extremely rare Josiah Holbrook orrery
Geographic Educator Puzzle Globe
A slate globe and a hanging globe for teaching. Students could draw on the slate globe with chalk to test their geographic knowledge. The hanging globe was lowered by a cord from the ceiling for lessons.

George was also a guest on the show in 2001 and 2002. More information here.
