The Chemists’ War
While the United States was formally in WWI, the federal government manufactured thousands of tons of chemical weapons such as chlorine and mustard gas and almost four million gas masks. Join Linda Hall Research Fellow, Gerard J. Fitzgerald for a discussion on the environmental impacts of chemical warfare production in the U.S. and the role civilians played in this effort. Using stories from the homefront, this talk explores the complex impact nature and the environment played in the process of industrialization and military mobilization during a global war. Presented in partnership with the Linda Hall Library. Reception begins at 6 p.m. FREE with RSVP | J.C. Nichols Auditorium
