Radium Girls Historical Sources

Hi, all!

I served as the dramaturg for the fall production of Radium Girls, which means I was in charge of all the historical research. Over Fall Term, I read many sources to help our show accurately portray the important stories we wanted to tell.

Our play was met with overwhelming positivity and interest in the girls. I’ve collected all of my sources in a document to aid anyone who would like to look further into this story. It has everything from short interviews to book recommendations to primary source archives and provides in-depth looks at many aspects of the case.

Please email me if you have a suggested source to add or if you have any questions. In particular, if you have a family member who you believe may have been involved with the Radium Girls, I am more than willing to help locate any information I can on them.
