Episode Description:

Were the mill owners of the Blackstone Valley the harsh, penny-pinching ogres we associate with a Charles Dickens novel or were they benevolent father-figures who genuinely cared about the welfare of their workers? The truth probably lies somewhere in between. As the industrial age swept across America, what was its impact on the workers. Along the Blackstone Episode #12 – Mill Life will take a look at the Rumford Chemical Company, Village of Rumford, East Providence, RI and the Draper Manufacturing Co. of Hopedale, MA as we examine workers and mill owners. Professor Scott Molloy, labor historian at the University of Rhode Island, will put everything into perspective for us.
