Program Description

In the earliest days of American industry, the Boston Manufacturing Company created an innovative, single-location manufacturing enterprise at Lowell that depended on the recruitment of female mill workers. This workshop debates the impact of this new form of employment on workers — for better or for worse. Participants investigate the workers’ experiences first-hand — through diaries, letters, published accounts, and official mill postings.
