A brief summary of the history of university involvement in communications and monitoring in underground coal mines is presented, beginning with the first federal appropriation of funds in 1970 under the Coal Mine Health and Safety Act of 1969 and continuing through the first half of 1985. Insight is provided into significant trendsetting work done by these universities. The first US mine monitoring project, the first US minewide monitoring system, and the first distributed microprocessor-based mine monitor system are discussed
