1. "Great Hall of the massive Hall of Science at Chicago's 1933 World's Fair -- A Century of Progress exposition, which opens May 27th and closes November 1st. Ceilings, panels, balconies, and stairways of the building embody new and superb examples of modern architectural design. Here the spirit of man's scientific achievement during the past 100 years, the predominant note of the Exposition -- finds concrete expression. The hall of Science houses a wealth of exhibits by industries closely related to the basic industries, with sections devoted to biology, chemistry, geology, mathematics, physics, and medicine."

LaDonne Patier is shown here with the rare exhibit which was isolated and placed in the periodic table of elements by Dr. Aristid von Grosse of the University of Chicago department of chemistry. Dr. von Grosse extracted the element from 15,000 milligrams of radium waste obtained form Czechoslovakia."
