Collection Name: Marat Moore Collection Oral History Interviews
Repository Name: East Tennessee State University. Archives of Appalachia [Repository Details]
Repository Location: Johnson City, Tennessee, United States
Local Identifier: Accession No. 316
URL: http://cass.etsu.edu/ARCHIVES/afindaid/a316.html
Dates Spanned: 1980-1986
Description: While the dates of the interviews span the period from 1980-86, the information contained within the tapes and transcripts cover a period from 1914 through 1986. Moore interviewed two groups of women: those who worked in the mines during the decades from 1920 through 1940, and those who worked during the years from 1970 through 1986. The former Moore called "pioneer" miners, and the latter "second generation". Two additional interviews are of special interest: one with Helen Korich Krmpotich, a survivor of the April 3, 1914 "Ludlow Massacre" of miners and their families in Trinidad, Colorado by militia and agents of the Colorado Fuel and Iron Company; and one with Minnie Lunsford, a coal miner's wife who lived in "bloody" Harlan County, Kentucky during the 1930s, and who participated in the 1973-74 Brookside Mine strike in that county.
