The minutes of Local 9992, based in Pohawtan Point, Ohio, cover the date span of Nov 1968 to Dec 1976. They contain not only regular business but committee reports, mine runs and minutes of special meetings called to discuss grievances, walk- outs, and other emergency situations.

Almost all the correspondence, 1973-1977, is official circular from the officers of District 6 or officers of the International UMWA. The majority concerns UMWA elections and contains campaign letters, notice of election procedures, and results. There is some material concerning official response to the Black Lung Amendments, the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1975, and the Mine Safety and Health Act of 1976.
