Talk:Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


I propose removing the following entries from the IPC section:

  • door knob - minor appearance
  • The Triangle Factory Fire Project by Christopher Piehler - no indication of notability for either play or author
  • The Dark of the Flame by Evin Anderson - ditto
  • "Coming of Age" - ditto
  • The Spider Goddess - fire is not significant to the work
  • Fever - ditto. Nikkimaria (talk) 13:15, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
Seeing no objections, I have implemented this change. Nikkimaria (talk) 15:25, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
My apologies for not responding to this, I completely forgot that I had asked you to discuss on the talk page. Let me take a look at your objections. BMK (talk) 22:21, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
OK, let me go through them in your order:
  • Doorknob - it appears in two episodes, so I'm not sure it's "minor". This source ([1]) isn't RS, and therefore can't be used in the article, but they do give a fan's view of the importance of the doorknob
  • Dark of the Flame - I agree, I can't find any notable productions
  • "Coming of Age" - Bridges looks like it may be a notable journal. Take a look at this.
  • "Goddess" - agree
  • Fever" - agree

Whether the journal is notable or not, I don't think that would make the story notable, per WP:ITSA. The doorknob I could take or leave. Nikkimaria (talk) 05:32, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
I have now implemented all of these except the doorknob. Nikkimaria (talk) 15:43, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

Triangle Shirtwaist Fire- Last Survivor Dies at 107[edit]

  • On March 25th, 1911, just before their break time at 4:45pm, a dropped match sparked a fire in a rag bin. Rose Freedman was just two days shy of being 18 years old. Mrs. Freedman escaped death by following company executives to the roof to be rescued. Rose became a lifelong fighter for worker safety, telling and telling the story that the Triangle workers died because the owners were not concerned with their welfare. Rose Freedman died in her apartment on February 24th, 1999 in Beverly Hills, California at age 107.

Hi. I'm not sure what you meant by this comment, but you did prompt me to add a bit about Rose Freedman's death - sourced by a New York Times piece - to the article. BMK (talk) 22:30, 15 February 2016 (UTC)


I think the list of names should go here. i placed a specific link to the names from the cornell library website. The 2016 Oakland warehouse fire had a large discussion about adding the names, and it was done there. i know it would seem like we are memorializing, but its more than that. those people are what makes this article so important. if it was an abandoned building, it would be a minor blip in ny history. so they are why this article matters. adding their names may be a way to provide NPOV, by not de-emphasizing the loss.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 07:37, 9 February 2017 (UTC)
