One of the most significant families of 19th century Pittsburgh was that of William Thaw. Aside from Thaw himself, his daughter-in-law, Elizabeth Dohrman Thaw, his second wife, Mary Copley Thaw, and their son, Harry Thaw  made the headlines of the region’s newspapers for several decades. This program will tell the story of the Thaw family.
