    Description

    Marie Curie Typed Statement Signed. One page, 8.5" x 11", on Marie Curie Radium Fund letterhead, [New York City], n. d. This typed carbon copy of a press release to the N.Y. Evening Telegram reads, in full: "I have for years wished to visit America, but my laboratory work and my children have made this impossible until now. I am happy to bring my daughters to see your great country with me. They share my gratitude to the American women for their interest in science and in my work. Will you please for me thank the American people." Signed in ink "M. Curie." Most likely written in 1921, following Curie's triumphant tour of the United States, during which she raised funds to continue her research on radium. At that time, Curie also received a gram of radium from the Executive Committee of Women of the Marie Curie Radium Fund. Lightly age toned and bearing several light folds, and accompanied by a printed portrait of Curie removed from a magazine.
