One of thousands of deaths on the job in the Pacific Northwest timber industry over the years. From West Coast and Puget Sound Lumberman June 1903.
A horrible accident occurred in the West & Slade mill, Aberdeen, Wash., on June 10. C.R. Wyman fell on a saw and his body was cut in two. The first that was known of the accident was the discovery of the body moving along on the conveyor which feeds the fires. He leaves a widow and child.
I have literally hundreds of examples of this sort of thing in my collection of logging papers. In that issue of the journal alone, 12 fatal accidents are reported and described in detail. Lest we forget, the past is the future our corporate overlords have planned for us.
