Fourty-four miners were killed in an explosion at the Clymer No. 1 mine of the Clearfield Bituminous Coal Corp. on Aug. 26, 1926.

This photo shows some of the children, wives, relatives and friends of the miners as they gathered on the hillside awaiting word from the rescue crews.

This crowd was driven to the hillside by state police after they swarmed around the mine entrance, delaying rescue work.

County historian John Busovicki, of Clymer, submitted this photo.
