Remembering the 1911 Triangle Factory Fire

In 1911, the Triangle Factory Fire tragically killed 146 workers. Most of these victims were young women in their teens and early twenties. On this website hosted by Cornell University, visitors can learn more about the fire and its lasting impact through primary documents, including newspaper articles, interviews with survivors (available courtesy of Leon Stein's book The Triangle Fire), and investigative reports. In the powerful victims & witnesses section, visitors will find biographical information and documents about the individuals who perished in the fire. In the supplemental resources section, visitors will find readings that contextualize this rich collection of primary documents. History instructors will want to take note of the tips for students tab at the bottom of the webpage, which offers advice for high school students about how to read this collection of primary documents and to use them to write a research paper.
