It is considered the worst mining disaster in American history and led to government oversight in mining practices.

In 1912, she was 23 years old when New Mexico became the 47th state of the Union in January.

Its population was over 327,000 when it became a state.

In 1964, at the age of 75 years old, Bessie was alive when on June 11th, activist Nelson Mandela was sentenced to life imprisonment in South Africa for conspiring to overthrow the state (because of his numerous anti-apartheid activities). He served 27 years in prison.

In 1972, in the year of Bessie Hutchinson's passing, on November 7th, Richard Nixon won re-election, amidst the dawning knowledge of the Watergate scandal, by 60.7% to anti-war candidate George McGovern's 37.5%.
