Rolling Hill Coal Mine (United States)


At 11:20 A.M. on July 10, 1902, an explosion ripped through the Klondike District (Note 1) of the Rolling Mill Mine in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. 114 men, most of whom were Polish, Slovak, and Croatian immigrants, lost their lives in the explosion and deadly afterdamp (Note 2) which followed. As rescue teams entered the mine in their search for survivors, Powell Stackhouse, president of the Cambria Steel Company which owned the Rolling Mill Mine, made and official statement. The press had gathered at the scene along with thousands of panic stricken relatives of the entomed miners:

No list of the names of the dead mienrs can be given, for the majority of them were foreigners and were known only by check and not by name. The only way their names will ever be know if the bodies are recoved in time for identificaiton, will be by their familes sending their names to us.
