This web page was an assignment in our History of American Technology course taught by Professor David Lux at Bryant College. The research on the Lowell Girls and the Lowell Mills was a joint effort by Erica Hutchinson, Wendy Lessard and Jeanne Lovett. In addition, Erica and Wendy toured the Lowell Mills, and took the photographs that are incorporated in this web page.
We would like to thank the staff and Park Rangers at the Lowell National Historical Park for all their help. We would also like to thank the Corporate Creative Department at Hasbro, especially Joel Savitzky, for their design/technical guidance and expertise, which proved invaluable in the creation of this web page. Joel has his own portfolio site which he would like you to visit. Please click here: Universalness.
