Dr. Harrison Martland first heard of the effects of Radium from Dr. Leman's death. They burned his bones to ashes and tested his ash with a electrometer. They determined that he died from Radium poisoning (18).
Martland met the Carlough sisters. At first Marguerite was very sick, however Sarah declined fast and died a week after being admitted to the hospital. Martland came up with a way to see if they had radium poisoning while they were still alive (18).
Katherine, Quinta and Grace were not as sick as the Carlough sisters, however they were still scanned with Martland's electrometer. They all tested positive for radium (19).

Grace had searched and searched for a lawyer, but was unable to find anyone willing to help her until she met Raymond H. Berry, a young educated man that was willing to help (24).
Dr. Flinn, the man that had been examining the girls and telling them they were fine, ended up not being a medical doctor. He was a fraud (25).
