J. R. Irvin was Koppers Div. Supt. of Sonman Mines, Sonman, Canbria Co., Pa. He took over in 1942 after the tragic explosion that took 63 men's lives until 1968 when the mine closed down. Joe rooted out the methane gas problem that caused the explosion and took the mine from the old method of mining with ponies and 19 Century methods into the 20th Century. Dad started mining with his father as a child of 12 yrs.old, as did his ancestors as children in Scotland.He is shown here in the old Koppers Store and Mine Office with his Engineers, Foremen, Supply House Mgr.,and etc. We lived in a two family company house behind the mine so he could be hands on for any emergency along with most of the men shown in this picture. This row of homes was named "Suckers Flat' by the miners but was in fact named 'Kings Row' for the lumber 'King' that first timbered and lived there in a mansion before the mine was started in the 1800's.
