American educator, chemist, geologist and Presbyterian minister, Elisha Mitchell was truly a Renaissance man and The University of North Carolina was fortunate to have him. Be with us as we follow the career of a man whose geological studies led to the identification of Mt. Mitchell as the highest peak east of the Mississippi River and, verifying that claim, lost his life.
