Provincial Archives of Alberta presents Documenting Disaster: Hillcrest
March 1, 2014 – July 19, 2014
On June 19, 1914, 189 miners lost their lives at Hillcrest Collieries in what is still Canada's worst mine disaster. One hundred years later, the Provincial Archives of Alberta reconstructs the events at Hillcrest and their impact on this coal mining community by highlighting important archival documents preserved within its holdings.
