Description The interview with Ann and John Spensko covers the subjects of background information, the 1924 Castle Gate mine explosion, the 1922 strike, softball, mining baseball league, formation of the United Mine Workers, the mining and municipal reaction to the union, relief protests, and the closure of the Spring Canyon Mine. The Carbon County oral history project (1972-1993) consists of oral histories from residents of Carbon County, Utah. While the main emphasis is on living in coal mine country, the interviews are verbal snapshots of rural Utah life from the earliest settlers to as recently as 1993.
