The purpose of this website is to provide easy access to the names of coal miners who were injured or killed in mining accidents within the First District of Illinois between 1882 and 1927. This database also lists the names of workers certified as hoisting engineers, mine managers, and mine examiners for the same time period and locale.
This project is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities and administered by the Library of Congress as part of the U.S. Newspaper Program and the National Digital Newspaper Program. Both programs involve a cooperative effort between the states and the federal government designed to preserve the nation’s historic newspaper heritage.
