Source: Annual Coal Report of the Illinois Department of Mines and Minerals.
Beginning about 1881, annual mine reports were prepared by the Illinois Department of Mines and Mining. To find these reports go to a state historical society library, state archive, a large library, or a mining university or college library Internet web site and do a search on the key words of “annual report mines Illinois”. To find these university and public libraries throughout the U.S., do a search on
WorldCat ( through your local library web site. The Chicago Public Library, Illinois State Library in Springfield, Milner Library in Normal, Morris Library at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, or LaSalle Public Library in LaSalle have many of the Illinois Annual Coal Reports. These Illinois reports are usually found under Library Call Number TN805.I3 A3. These reports may not only contain names and details for fatal and non-fatal accidents, but also cover strikes, details of mining operations at specific mines, location of the mines, production and operation details for specific mines, names of inspectors, pictures, certification for shot firers and inspectors, names of specific mine personnel, etc. Fatalities and non-fatal accidents with injuries are listed in tables in the books. Specific names are listed in these tables, but these names were not indexed in an alphabetical index for the entire book.
I have data from the Illinois Mining Accidents 1891-1948 and there is no BRASMER or DEARDEN listed. I have been unable to acquire any pre1891 reports even though I have offered to cover the copying costs. “Mine Accidents U.S., Canada and Australia”
