Women Coal Miners Reunion at the Archives of Appalachia

On August 3, attendees of the Women Coal Miners Reunion visited the Archives. The women and their families viewed coal related documents, videos, photographs, and memorabilia from the Coal Employment Project Records, the Marat Moore Collection, the June Rostan Papers, and the Steve Lindner Collection. During their visit, several women were interviewed on camera regarding their experiences as women miners. These interviews will be added to the Archives and will enhance scholarship on topics related to women’s studies, coal history, and activism.

    Greetings Laura, I am very interested in information from the Coal Employment Project concerning “Kentucky Woman” and director/writer Walter Donegar who wrote and directed the movie for CBS TV. Is there an assistant there who could research information concerning these indexed files? Thank you very much.
