My father is/was a survivor of the OLA fire. I can't find his name anywhere in this website. From what I remember from his stories, he was on the 2nd floor and jumped from a window on to an awning on to the ground and ran home. His name is Anthony Raymond Kluk. He went on to become a journalist and wrote an award winning article about the fire for the Chicago Tribune years later. I am going to look for that article so I can share it on this site.
I wish I could remember what classroom my Dad was in so I could post his name up there. If anyone knows, feel free to email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org
