LIBBY, MONTANA - Selected Scene #3

This is the third installment in our series of clips from the feature documentary, LIBBY, MONTANA. Bob Wilkins, who was the local union rep for mine workers, talks about how he discovered there was asbestos in the dust at the mine and mill operations. Wilkins died of asbestos related disease in 2002. Dru Carr and I shot the interview with Bob in 2000. Earl Lovick was the plant manager for many years. His commentary here is from a videotaped deposition recorded during a civil case against WR Grace in the 1990s. Lovick died in 1996.
