Labor history Nov 26 , 6 young women burn to death and 19 more die door locked

November 26

Six young women burn to death and 19 more die when they leap from the fourth-story windows of a blazing factory in Newark, N.J. The floors and stairs were wooden; the only door from which the women could flee was locked - 1910

November 26, 1912 - Minnesota native Eric Sevareid, who became a leading broadcast journalist, was born. As a student at the University of Minnesota, he reported on the landmark 1934 Teamsters' strike.
