About this title


Book by Armes, Ethel Marie


“The principal authority for the general treatment of the history of coal, and of iron and steel, in Alabama is the work of Miss Ethel Armes. The Story of Coal and Iron in Alabama, is a comprehensive and scholarly work portraying in attractive style the growth of the mineral industries in its relation to the development of the state and of the South, in preparation of which the author spent more than five years.” --Thomas McAdory Owen, History of Alabama 

“The documentation of Birmingham’s industrial heritage began at its apogee, with Ethel Armes.”—Alex Lichtenstein, Labor History

“A remarkable volume is The Story of Coal and Iron in Alabama by Ethel ArmesThis handsome work gives a complete history of the development of coal and iron in Alabama. The volume rings with the sentiment of the early pioneers, has quaint photographs of the ruins of old blast furnaces, pictures of the early leaders, letters, bills of lading and illustrations of modern plants.”—Sidney W. Ashe, New York Times Saturday Review of Books, Aug. 20, 1910
