More Info on This Book: Donora

The founding of Donora was the result of social, political and economic interaction among elite and powerful capitalists.

In less than a year, the population of Donora quickly boomed from an original 12 residents to more than 4,000. They shared a common value system based on education, hard work and devotion to faith and family.

In a new book by Arcadia Publishing, local authors Charles E. Stacey, Brian Charlton and David Lonich from the Donora Historical Society document the colorful past of Donora.
