Abstract
The National Coal Workers' Autopsy Study was described in this pamphlet. Topics included: what is an autopsy; who is eligible; arranging for an autopsy; giving consent; costs; and results. Information gathered was intended to help scientists studying black lung disease. The choice of the miner's survivors to participate may help the widow obtain black lung benefits. Persons eligible for such a study included active and former underground miners or surface workers at underground mines. The next of kin to the deceased miner must grant permission for the study to be performed and answer nine simple questions regarding the individual's working and smoking history. Additional information was provided concerning the activities of NIOSH in relation to the health and welfare of coal miners.
