The Radium Dial Painters: Their Fatal Brush with Death

Thursday, October 13th
7:00 p.m.
$5 members / $7 non-members
Pre-registration is requested, but not required

Behind the story of the clock and watch industries’ 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. Colleen Nicastro, Director of Interpretation at the American Clock & Watch Museum, will present this story of opportunity, broken trust, and the search for truth.
