Are you related to a Theater fire victim or survivor? Do you want to dig in and start researching their lives? I have a few recommended places for you to start!

First, check out my victims list with its new bibliography addendum at the bottom of the page. Next, check out the survivors page, which is a recent addition. Information about both victims and survivors is updated and added on to whenever I have a few minutes, so check back for more information.

 

You can also do as other readers have, and contact me directly about certain people connected to the fire. I might have the information you need or can point you to a resource or archive that may help you. I can be reached at meredith @ theaterfirebook.com and will do my best to help answer your questions!
