Our society is in possession of almost all of the Illinois Coal Report books that were published between 1894 into the 1970’s. Each book details the names of all fatal and non-fatal mine accident victims. All of the books detail in which coal mine the accident occurred and how the accident occurred, while some also give more detailed accounts and some biographical information. The names of all 738 victims of fatal accidents have been indexed and added to our Misc. County Record Index, while the names only can be found at a separate link below.
