        A Pellet of Poison

        The strange story of how the lives of two famous women--Marie Curie and Doctor Susan Picotte--intersected in 1915.
        In the autumn of 1915 on the Omaha Indian Reservation in Nebraska a small package arrived at the home of Doctor Susan Picotte.  It contained a tiny pellet of radium sent by Madam Marie Curie to save the life of the first Native American doctor as she lay dying of cancer.
