Excerpt from Buffalo Medical Journal, Vol. 69: August, 1913
Dr. John B. Andrews, in Bulletin, 95, of the State Bureau of Labor, reported 60 fatal cases of lead poisoning occuring in New York State in 1909-10. Three more fatal cases recently occurred in a single smelting establishment in New York City.
Dr. E. E, Pratt, investigating for the Committee of the Labor Legislation Association, recently found eighteen cases of lead poisoning among men employed in the Brooklyn Navy Yard to scrape red paint from the hulls of the battleships. Three of these men came to my clinic with lead palsy.
