New London Disaster, Redux
I just saw the March issue of Texas Monthly, and I guess you have two options: You can pay to read Katy Vines' story on the 1937 New London gas explosion, which killed more than 300 school children and teachers and remains the third deadliest disaster in the state's history. Or you can read for free Carlton Stowers' story on the 1937 New London gas explosion, which appeared in the paper version of Unfair Park exactly five years ago this week. Your choice. --Robert Wilonsky
