Merit Award for International Magazine

The International Fire Fighter wins a merit award from the International Labor Press Association for five articles on the disastrous Lady of Angels school fire in Chicago, a tragic fire that swept Our Lady of Angels parochial school in Chicago on December 1. Three nuns and 90 children lost their lives. The fire began somewhere at the bottom of an open wooden staircase in the northeast corner of the building, likely due to a student smoking. President William D. Buck stated, “It is obvious there are no new lessons to be learned from this fire – just old lessons tragically re-emphasized.”
