Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Wreck of No. 52
Hi, this is a great site - I'm bookmarking it - I have that song and want to play it in conjunction with the anniversary of the tragedy on my radio show - glad to learn from this page that it was in 1933 - but wonder if my fellow Blues scholars might know the location of the wreck and the actual date, please? Thanks so much... info appreciated!

Sincerely,
Clair DeLune,
Professor of Blues History; author of South Carolina Blues; and host of Blues Moon Radio on wusc.sc.edu since 1990

I welcome your insights and links to news stories of the event (which I could not uncover, so hoping y'all might!)
