“1st To Do It” chronicles some of the most innovative, daring and unknown mavericks in the fields of art, music, sports and fashion. Through arduous research, spanning the stacks at toppled libraries to unearthed microfilm, these pioneers were the first people to do things that seem quite commonplace in today’s society.
