CMS 048 documents activities in the Italian-American Roman Catholic parish of Our Lady of Pompei, located in the coal-company town of Monongah, West Virginia, between the years 1899, when missionaries from what is now the Society of Saint Charles-Scalabrinians, a congregation of male religious founded to minister to migrants, arrived in the area, to 1926, when the missionaries left. Documents include correspondence. The collection is a window into life in a company town, and to community response to a significant industrial accident, the 1907 Monongah mine explosion.
