THE TRIANGLE FIRE: THE DEADLIEST INDUSTRIAL DISASTER IN THE HISTORY OF THE CITY Triangle Shirtwaist Company In a tragic event accruing in the early 1900s, resulting in the deaths of 145 factory workers, ultimately led to the development of several laws and regulations that would better shape labor condition throughout the United States. In the paperback “The Triangle Fire” written by Jo Ann E. Argersinger, there are numerous primary sources with personal stories reflecting how this heartrending event shaped survivors of the Triangle Fire.

Evans, wrote an urgent letter to the Red Cross stating, “Please establish headquarters for all relief work, & bring all organizations who can assist you to your aid --- the responsibility is placed in your hands entirely.” In response, the Director of Relief for the Red Cross, Maurice Willows, went to Tulsa. Born in Clinton, Canada on April 16, 1876, Willows worked at the Red Cross headquarters in St. Louis during the late spring of 1921 and was one of the first Red Cross employees to be sent to the rioting Tulsa after its cry for help. Upon witnessing the horrific state of the city, Maurice Willows contacted the Red Cross headquarters in Washington D.C., asking to classify this riot as a natural disaster so that the organization could respond. It is because of this, that for the first time in its history, the Red Cross responded to, and cared for survivors, of a catastrophe that was not the result of nature, but rather a man-made disaster. After being sent to Tulsa, Willows wrote, “it seemed clear that the trouble did not have any providential causes, and, as the Red Cross had never taken a hand in man-made disasters, I called Washington with the report that: there was an unknown number of homeless refugees, all negroes; there was no adequate relief organization in town; on account of the divisions between the whites and negroes…”.

The evidence of his humanitarianism was shown for the public to see when he rescued Chinese children from the gunfire near the settlement he was in whilst ordering the construction of barricades to keep the people safe. Another example of his hospitality was when Germany declared war on France. The American Consul General had asked for his help to get stranded tourists from The United States back home to America. After helping more than 120,000 people get back to America, he was asked to feed Belgium which at that point was overrun by Germany’s army. Just after the United States had entered the war, President Woodrow Wilson assigned Hoover as the head of the Food Administration where he reduced the intake of food used by the Allies and didn’t have to shorten the amount of food people were getting in America but still kept the Allies fed.
This is an example of one of the best human experiences right after a major tragedy. He was focused on helping others rather than just saving himself. Later in Hiroshima, Dr. Sasaki was bombarded by victims from the bombing. Thousands and thousands of people flooded the damaged hospital begging for help from the few remaining doctors and nurses. Dr. Sasaki began helping victims immediately, putting off finding his own mother and checking his own well-being.
He helped over 120,000 stranded American tourists return home from Europe and coordinated the delivery of food and supplies to Belgium citizens after the country was overrun by Germany. Hoover was appointed to the head of the Food Administration by President Woodrow Wilson when the United States entered the war in 1917. He made many things being the Head of the Food Administration. He advocated that Americans should cut on the consumption of meat and other supplies so they could have a stable supply of food and clothing for the Allied troops. After the war ended, Hoover set shipments of food and care to war-ravaged Europe.

With the goal of escaping Afghanistan in mind, Farah Ahmedi undertook the mission of entering Pakistan to gain a more favorable life.

Petra Nemcova once said, “We cannot stop natural disasters but we can arm ourselves with knowledge: so many lives wouldn’t have to be lost if there was enough disaster preparedness.” (Brainy Quote) A natural disaster is unpredictable and will obliterate anything in its path. Families and victims go through sorrow and nuisance. I watched many emotions arise and spirits emerge when I saw the victims of the earthquake that happened in Haiti six years ago. Seeing the devastation of a natural disaster allowed me to change into a better person by helping and wanting to give back to their now extravagant community by rebuilding the kaput, wrecked roads. The first time I walked through the streets of Haiti, I could feel the sentiment in the air of heartbreak and poignant.

By the mid-1930’s more than 500,000 young men lived in the camps, most of which stayed between 6 months to a year. They did things like digging canals, and planting millions of trees in vast lands that were destroyed by fires, natural erosion, lumbering etc.
While there were divisions in Australia along class and religious lines, as well as competing visions for the future of the young nation, at first Australians were overwhelmingly united in response to the war. Politically, normally divided political parties united in the face of the crisis. Then Liberal Prime Minister Joseph Cook publically committed 20,000 troops and funds to the cause, opposition leader Andrew Fisher declared that Australia would defend the Empire “to the last man and the last shilling”, and, in December 1914, the War Precautions Act pass through parliament with “little overt dissent”, according to Joan Beaumont. But it was not only within the political arena that support for the war effort was strong. With few exceptions, newspapers across the country reported a growth in patriotic sentiment, with individuals wearing emblems of England and France and the national anthem being played at nightly cultural events.
Hurricane Katrina and Super Storm Sandy both brought disaster in their wake, but from the hardships that followed, came the united work force of the local communities that were affected.

The Dust Bowl Dust clouds, filthy homes, sickness, death, and migration were none other than the Dust Bowl. In the 1930s some of the toughest people survived this era. It wasn’t just the worldwide depression that made a lasting impact on the United States, the Dust Bowl changed the nation’s perspective on conserving soil and protecting the Earth. From the 1910s through the Roaring 20’s, farmers flocked into the Plains searching for wealth and prosperity. The farmers and settlers then plowed up 100 million acres in parts of Oklahoma, Kansas, California, Texas, and New Mexico, because there were some wet years..
