My dissertation concerns the roles of immigrants, labor organizations, and business enterprise in defining a municipal community consciousness in an urbanizing coal center in southwestern Wyoming, c. 1870-1930.
I am also continuing work on liberal urban religion in the Gilded Age and grass-roots student activism in the 1960s.
