Description: This is a frame that was preserved at the NY Academy of Medicine containing ashes from possibly the first therapeutic use of radium in the United States and some radium from that time. The paper has radiation burns from the exposure. Read the text to fully appreciate the exhibit. It can be read easilly by clicking the enlarge button. One of the vials has fallen to the bottom of the frame because the radiation destroyed the thread that was holding it mounted.
