Women employees at the Cheney Brothers Silk Manufacturing Company mill in Manchester, Connecticut, ca. 1925.

You are cordially invited to the Dodd Research Center to view the exhibit “All in a Day’s Work: Photographs of Women in Connecticut Industry from the Collections of the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center,” now available in the West Corridor until the end of June. The exhibit, which shows photographs from the Business Collections, was the brainchild of UConn Waterbury campus librarian Shelley Goldstein, who developed the exhibit to travel around the regional campuses (and hopefully to other venues) and to promote library outreach. The exhibit opened in Waterbury in March and then it spent the month of April at the Avery Point campus. It is now in Storrs for the summer (at the DRC first and then in the Homer Babbidge Library in July and August) before completing the rounds at the regional libraries through the fall.

You can find all of the photographs in the exhibit, plus the travel schedule, at http://doddcenter.uconn.edu/exhibits/days_work/index.htm.
