Inscription
In the last half of the 1800s, the Welsh in America published books in their native language at a time when it was illegal to do so in Great Britain. Coal Creek miners Rees R. Thomas and his son David R. Thomas donated a rare collection of those books to Harvard University.

"The Welsh of Tennessee" (2012) by Dr. Eirug Davies of Harvard University tells how Welsh miners and iron workers helped East Tennessee rebuild after the American Civil War, while preserving their native language and culture. That book recognizes research by Briceville students, proving that learning is an unbroken circle in Coal Creek.
