The Radium Dial Painters–Their Fatal Brush with Death

May 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Free

Special event co-sponsored by the American Clock & Watch Museum: Behind the story of the clock and watch industry’s success, lies a tragic story of employee sacrifice. For a time, little was known about the toxic working conditions of the young women in the dial painting industry. Fortunately, their story was eventually heard. Unfortunately, many of them did not live to see that day. Their story is one of opportunity, broken trust, and the search for truth. Please visit or call the library to register in advance.
