Radium Girls

April 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$5

Colleen Nicastro, Director of Interpretation for the American Clock & Watch Museum, will present her program on the Radium Dial Painters: Their Fatal Brush with Death, on Thursday, April 25 at 7pm. Behind the story of the Clock & 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. Their story was eventually heard, but many did not live to see that day. This is a program not to be missed! Program is free to members, and $5 for non-members.
