Remembering the Triangle Factory Fire

The July/August issue of Archival Outlook published by the Society of American Archivists contains an interesting article on the history of the Triangle Factory Fire and the redevelopment of a commemorative website about the fire.

The re-launched site in January 2011 by the Kheel Center for Labor-Management Documentation and Archives at Cornell University’s ILR School. This relaunch was timely as 201l marks the centennial anniversary of the fire. Despite including a detailed description of the development and content of the website the Archival Outlook article didn’t actually include a link to the site.  Thankfully Google came to my rescue, and the site can be found here.

Some of the unique parts of the site include:

 The site includes a mix of primary and secondary sources and is a great place to start for students and others looking to learn more about the Triangle Factory Fire of 1911.
