Danbury, Connecticut

Danbury is the fourth largest city in Fairfield County and is the seventh largest city in Connecticut with an estimated population of nearly 80,000. It was incorporated as a town in 1702 and later as a city in 1889. Currently, some of the major employers located in Danbury include Fairfield Processing, Danbury Hospital, Boehringer Ingelheim, Pitney Bowes, and Western Connecticut State University.

Danbury’s main industry was hatting during the 19th and early 20th centuries. It was primarily responsible for Danbury's growth as a city. Danbury led the country in fur hat production earning the nickname "The Hat Capital of the World". In 1849, a hat making machine was introduced, essentially eliminating all the small hat shops, which gave way to larger factories and helped increase production levels. By 1887, some 30 factories in Danbury were manufacturing five million hats a year, more than any other place in the United States. The success of Danbury's hat industry attracted skilled workers to the area increasing the city's population and spawned new businesses that supported the hat factories. By 1923, only six hat manufacturers remained in Danbury. Changing fashions and costly labor were factors that contributed to the steady decline and eventual demise of the hatting industry.

Asbestos exposure and the diseases related with it like malignant mesothelioma is a problem across most cities in the United States, including Danbury. Use of asbestos containing products was prevalent in the early to late 1900's particularly in the manufacturing industry.
