A List of Victims of the Ohio Penitentiary Fire
With Their Death Certificates

State Penitetiary, Columbus, Ohio
On the evening of April 21, 1930 the inmates at the Ohio Penitentiary at Columbus had just returned from their evening meal and been locked down for the night when fire was discovered in cell blocks G and H. Some of the guards delayed opening the cells, for fear there would be a mass prison break. By the time action was taken to let the prisoners out of their cells the fire and smoke were already taking a heavy toll. There were stories of cruelty and inhumane behavior among both prisoners and guards, but there were far more stories of heroism and brotherhood. Two guards, William C. Baldwin and Tom Little, heroes themselves, reported that prisoners saved their lives. It has been reported that 322 died as a result of the fire. I found only 319 death certificates. One man seemed to be listed twice, but with only one death certificate. I also learned of one man, James Raymond, who verbally confessed to helping start the fire and then hung himself while in solitary confinement. I added his name as victim 321. Victim 322 was Clinton Grate who was convicted, along with Hugh Gibbons, of setting the fire. They were convicted of second degree murder and sentenced to life imprisonment. At least ten men were so badly burned that they could not be identified immediately and were listed simply as, "Unidentified white man number --." Some way of indentifying them was apparently found as all were named.

This fire remains the single most tragic fire in any prison in the United States. Only two other single-building fires claimed more victims in our history; those are the Iroquois Theater Fire of December 30, 1903 in Chicago that claimed 602 lives, mostly women and children and the Cocoanut Grove Nightclub fire in Boston, Massachusetts that killed 492 on November 28, 1942.

I have additional information on some of these men. If you have questions or information, please, contact .  If I can't answer your questions I will try to put you in contact with someone who can.
