Dr Joseph Edward Chambers
Birth: Jun. 17, 1926
Raleigh County
West Virginia, USA
Death: Nov. 14, 1970
Wayne County
West Virginia, USA

Dr. Joseph Chambers, M.D., was born June 17, 1926, in Beckley. He graduated from Staunton Military Academy and attended Duke, Marshall, and Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. He was a member of the American, West Virginia, and Cabell County Medical Societies. He was one of the team's physicians.

On a rainy hill side in Wayne County, West Virginia, the lives of 75 people were lost in the worst single air tragedy in NCAA sports history. Among the losses were nearly the entire Marshall University football team, coaches, flight crew, numerous fans, and supporters. The event marked a boundary by which an entire community would forever measure time... before or after "The Crash". This site is a memorial to the lives that were lost on that evening; to honor those men and women who made a mark in the hearts of a school, a community and a nation.
