Description:

This paper reviews the 1903 Iroquois theater fire which took 600 lives and brought injury and life-long loss to at least as many more. The paper briefly outlines the incident and then explores what took place as well as what could have been done to prevent the tragedy which unfolded. In particular, the paper argues that local officials should have examined the site in advance of the ill-fated, "Mr. Bluebeard, Jr." concert. Furthermore, the paper argues that standardized procedures should have been implemented so that staff would have been trained to handle an emergency and time should also have been devoted to creating a structure that had uniform doors, easily visible exits, and a back exit that did not (when suddenly opened) permit wind to blow fire directly into those sitting in front of the stage.
