  IALHI News Service: Comparative Coalfield Histories
Stefan Berger and Andy Croll are organising a conference on Comparative Coalfield Histories at the University of Glamorgan in the spring of 2002.
The University of Glamorgan, situated at the heart of the South Wales coalfield, will be an ideal place to examine questions regarding the distinctiveness of coalfield societies, the similarities that unite coalfields otherwise separated by time and space, and the differences that mark them out from one another.
The nature of the work processes, the character of the social structure of the communities, the topography of coalfields and the often turbulent histories that unfolded within them, are all factors that have contributed to strong public images of the world of mining.

  C.L. MADDOX, INCORPORATED, Plaintiff-Appellant, v. COALFIELD SERVICES, INCORPORATED, Defendant-Appellee. - Project ...
Coalfield's performing a substantial part of its contractual undertaking was further evidence that the parties had a contract, as it is hardly plausible that Coalfield would have done so much work, or Maddox permitted it to do so much work, had the parties not thought there was a contract.
Coalfield's repeated requests to Maddox to sign a proposal that, so far as the record shows, contained no unusual, coercive, or one-sided terms--a proposal that could not be said to invite rejection or a counterproposal--were in effect reasonable requests for assurances, or close enough to be treated the same by the law.
Coalfield's proposal was vague: "Schedule to provide for installation within three (3) weeks if allowed to work 7 days per week around the clock." And if this was a commitment to completion within three weeks, it was only a conditional commitment, and one of the conditions--being allowed to work seven days a week--was not fulfilled.

  The Ingleton Coalfield—A Slumbering Dwarf?
The thickest seams of all in the coalfield were in fact to remain undiscovered until the sinking of the New Ingleton Pit in 1913.
These seams, the youngest in the coalfield, do not outcrop at the surface, having been truncated by erosion prior to the deposition of the Barren Measures (see figure 2) but are now believed to underlie much of the area covered by the Barren Measures (see figure 1).
At the acme of the coalfields in the 1830s up to 16,000 tons of coal were produced a year from one of the principal collieries, the Ingleton colliery.

 Deborah R. Weiner / Coalfield Jews
Coalfield Jews explores the intersection of two simultaneous historic events: central Appalachia's transformative coal boom (1880s-1920), and the mass migration of eastern European Jews to America.
Deborah R. Weiner's Coalfield Jews provides the first extended study of Jews in Appalachia, exploring where they settled, how they made their place within a surprisingly receptive dominant culture, how they competed with coal company stores, interacted with their non-Jewish neighbors, and maintained a strong Jewish identity deep in the heart of the Appalachian mountains.
To tell this story, Weiner draws on a wide range of primary sources in social, cultural, religious, labor, economic, and regional history.
