Timeline

1907 - In the year that Adolfo Villanueva was born, the Monongah coal mining disaster occurred on December 6th, happening at the Fairmont Coal Company’s No. 6 and No. 8 mines..

The disaster was so shocking that it replaced World War II in the headlines and lead to reforms in safety standards and codes.

1979 - At the age of 72 years old, Adolfo was alive when on March 28th, a partial nuclear meltdown occurred at the power plant at Three Mile Island Pennsylvania.
