Prints depicting first aid demonstrations and competitions sponsored by the coal mining industry, and the mining rescue teams that participated in them. The history of such gatherings dates to October 30, 1911 when the first national mine-safety demonstration was held at Forbes field, in Pittsburgh. The demonstration was planned and managed by engineers of the Bureau with the aid of miners and coal operators of the Pittsburgh district. It embraced exhibits that demonstrated the character of nearly every branch of the Bureau's investigative work in relation to mine accidents, including first-aid and mine-rescue work, coal-dust explosions, and also special coal-dust explosions at the Bureau's experimental mine at Bruceton, Pa. Approximately 15,000 persons attended the demonstration. Thenceforth, first aid contests were annually held in mining towns across the Appalachians and mining country.
