Presented by Susan Ferrandiz, assistant professor in the library department of Slippery Rock University, McIntyre, Pennsylvania: The Everyday Life of a Coal Mining Company Town "tells the story of a representative bituminous coal town in western Pennsylvania" from its founding in 1910 to its fall as a company town in 1947. Equipped with photos, documents, letters, and the memories of current and former town residents, the site is divided into a number of sections that include the coal company, miners and mining, the union, school and education, family and town life, leisure and recreation, and church and religion. A product of her master's thesis, Susan Ferrandiz hopes that "this assemblage of documents, memories, and information will convey a taste of the everyday life of the town and its residents during the first half of the 20th century."
