Alta Live: The Original Girl in the Well

Before Baby Jessica grabbed the attention of the world when she fell into a Texas well in 1987, a California girl named Kathy Fiscus suffered a similar—yet much more tragic—fate. Historian William Deverell joins Alta Live to discuss the infamous 1949 San Marino “girl in the well” story as well as his new book on the subject, Kathy Fiscus: A Tragedy That Transfixed the Nation. Deverell details this historic piece of California history and explains how Fiscus’s fall changed the course of modern media.
