Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire Centennial
Draper students invited

The Archives and Public History Brown Bag Lunch Series commences this semester on Friday, February 5. This session will feature a discussion of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire Centennial celebration, which will occur in March of 2011. Leading members of the Remember the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire Coalition, Sheryl Woodruff and Ruth Sergel, will discuss their goals for the centennial, and invite NYU students and faculty to brainstorm ideas and get involved in the planning process. This centennial is particularly significant for the NYU community as it occurred in what is now NYU’s Brown Building of Science, next to the Silver Center.

Remember the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire Coalition was founded to commemorate the massive 1911 industrial disaster that killed 146 workers and inspired a movement for labor rights and social justice. Sheryl Woodruff is the Senior Director of Operations at the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation. Ruth Sergel is a researcher and adjunct faculty member at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP).

Please bring a brown bag lunch. Complimentary drinks and desserts will be provided.
