Information Sought On Possible Survivor

A new name has surfaced in our study of the Winecoff fire: Jacob Mathias Furr Jr. He was a civil engineer from North Carolina and was forty eight years old at the time of the fire. He died in 1953. One of our readers is seeking confirmation that J.M. (Jake) Furr was a survivor of the Winecoff Hotel fire.
Furr may have been among the mysterious group of gamblers who escaped from room 330 and tried to remain anonymous.
