1907 - Angelo was just 5 years old when the Monongah coal mining disaster occurred on December 6th, happening at the Fairmont Coal Company’s No. 6 and No. 8 mines.. Over 361 miners were killed.

He was a powerful and controversial figure in Louisiana politics (and probably gained power through multiple criminal acts).
