The Radium Girls were female factory workers who contracted radiation poisoning from painting watch dials with self-luminous paint. Painting was done by women at three different sites in the United States, and the term now applies to the women working at the facilities: The women in each facility had been told the paint was harmless, and subsequently ingested deadly amounts of radium after being instructed to "point" their brushes on their lips in order to give them a fine point; some also painted their fingernails, face and teeth with the glowing substance.
The women were instructed to point their brushes because using rags, or a water rinse, caused them to waste too much time and waste too much of the material made from powdered radium, gum arabic and water. Five of the women in New Jersey challenged their employer in a case over the right of individual workers who contract occupational diseases to sue their employers under New Jersey's occupational injuries law, which at the time had a two-year statute of limitations, but settled out of court in Five women in Illinois who were employees of the Radium Dial Company which was unaffiliated with the United States Radium Corporation sued their employer under Illinois law, winning damages in From to , U.
Radium Corporation, originally called the Radium Luminous Material Corporation , was engaged in the extraction and purification of radium from carnotite ore to produce luminous paints , which were marketed under the brand name " Undark ". Radium was a major supplier of radioluminescent watches to the military. Their plant in Orange, New Jersey, employed over one hundred workers, mainly women, to paint radium-lit watch faces and instruments, misleading them that it was safe.
Radium Corporation hired approximately 70 women to perform various tasks including handling radium, while the owners and the scientists familiar with the effects of radium carefully avoided any exposure to it themselves; chemists at the plant used lead screens, masks and tongs. Radium had distributed literature to the medical community describing the "injurious effects" of radium. In spite of this knowledge, a number of similar deaths had occurred by , including the company's chief chemist, Dr Edwin E.
Leman and several female workers. The similar circumstances of their deaths prompted investigations to be undertaken by Dr. Harrison Martland, County Physician of Newark. An estimated 4, workers were hired by corporations in the U.
At USRC, each of the painters mixed her own paint in small crucibles, and then used camel hair brushes to apply the glowing paint onto dials. The brushes would lose shape after a few strokes, so the U. Radium supervisors encouraged their workers to point the brushes with their lips "lip, dip, paint" , or use their tongues to keep them sharp. Because the true nature of the radium had been kept from them, the Radium Girls painted their nails, teeth, and faces for fun with the deadly paint produced at the factory.
It is unknown how many died from exposure to radiation. Many of the women later began to suffer from anemia , bone fractures and necrosis of the jaw, a condition now known as radium jaw. It is thought that the X-ray machines used by the medical investigators may have contributed to some of the sickened workers' ill-health by subjecting them to additional radiation.
It turned out at least one of the examinations was a ruse, part of a campaign of disinformation started by the defense contractor. Radium and other watch-dial companies rejected claims that the afflicted workers were suffering from exposure to radium. For some time, doctors, dentists, and researchers complied with requests from the companies not to release their data. At the urging of the companies, worker deaths were attributed by medical professionals to other causes; syphilis , a notorious sexually transmitted infection at the time, was often cited in attempts to smear the reputations of the women.
The inventor of radium dial paint, Dr Sabin A. Von Sochocky, died in November , becoming the 16th known victim of poisoning by radium dial paint. He had gotten sick from radium in his hands, not the jaw, and soon offered to help the Radium Girls in court. The Radium Dial Company was established in Ottawa, Illinois, in , in the town's former high school.
Like the United States Radium Corporation, the purpose of the studio in Ottawa was to paint dials for clocks, their largest client being Westclox Corporation in Peru, Illinois. Dials painted in Ottawa appeared on Westclox's popular Big Ben, Little Ben and travel clocks; and like United States Radium Corporation, Radium Dial hired young women to paint the dials, using the same "lip, dip, paint" approach as the women in New Jersey and by another unaffiliated plant in Waterbury, Connecticut, that supplied the Waterbury Clock Company.
Following the termination of President Joseph Kelly from the concern, Kelly established a competing firm in the town named Luminous Process Company, which also employed women in the same fashion, and in the conditions as the other firms. Employees at Radium Dial began showing signs of radium poisoning in , and were unaware of the hearings and trials in New Jersey. Furthermore, Radium Dial leadership authorized physicals and other tests designed to determine the toxicity of its employees, but the company never turned those records to the employees or told them of the results.
In a half-hearted attempt to end the use of the camel hair brushes, management introduced glass pens with a fine point, however the workers found that the pens slowed down their productivity they were paid by the piece , and they reverted to using brushes.
When word of the New Jersey women and their suits appeared in local newspapers, the women were told that the radium was safe, and that employees in New Jersey were showing signs of viral infections.
Assured by their employers that the radium was safe, they returned to work as usual. In New Jersey, the story of the abuse perpetrated against the workers is distinguished from most such cases by the fact that the ensuing litigation was covered widely by the media. Plant worker Grace Fryer decided to sue, but it took two years for her to find a lawyer willing to take on U.
Even after the women found a lawyer, the slow-moving courts held out for months. At their first appearance in court on January , two women were bedridden and none of them could raise their arms to take an oath. In Illinois, employees began asking for compensation for their medical and dental bills as early as , but were refused by management. The demand for money by sick and dying former employees continued into the mid s before a suit before the Illinois Industrial Commission IIC was brought.
In five women found an attorney that would represent them in front of the commission, but by this time, Radium Dial had closed, leaving no forwarding address. In the spring of , the IIC ruled in favor of the women. The attorney representing the interests of Radium Dial appealed hoping to get the verdict overturned, and again the commission judge found for the women. The Radium Girls' saga holds an important place in the history of both the field of health physics and the labor rights movement.
The right of individual workers to sue for damages from corporations due to labor abuse was established as a result of the Radium Girls case. The lawsuit and resulting publicity was a factor in the establishment of occupational disease labor law.
Radium paint was still used in dials as late as the s. Evans made the first measurements of exhaled radon and radium excretion from a former dial painter in At MIT he gathered dependable body content measurements from 27 dial painters.
This information was used in by the National Bureau of Standards to establish the tolerance level for radium of 0. The primary purpose of the Center was providing medical examinations for living dial painters. The project also focused on collection of information and, in some cases, tissue samples from the radium dial painters. When the project ended in , detailed information of 2, cases had been collected.
This led to a book on the effects of radium on humans. The book suggests that radium exposure is more harmful to health than exposure to radium Radium is more able to cause cancer of the bone as the shorter half life of the radon product compared to radon causes the daughter nuclides of radium to deliver a greater dose of alpha radiation to the bones. It also considers the induction of a range of different forms of cancer as a result of internal exposure to radium and its daughter nuclides. The book used data from radium dial painters, people who were exposed as a result of the use of radium-containing medical products, and other groups of people who have been exposed to radium.
