Aspects Of The Becker Brewing And Malting Company Of Ogden, Utah: A Study Of Labor, Prohibition, And Finance, Jason Neil 2020 Utah State University

Aspects Of The Becker Brewing And Malting Company Of Ogden, Utah: A Study Of Labor, Prohibition, And Finance, Jason Neil

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

Embedded within the economic narrative of the nineteenth and twentieth century American West lays the rich, but frequently forgotten, history of brewing in Utah. While most businesses in Utah centered on agriculture, railroads, and mining, the breweries of Utah also played a significant role in the industrial and economic development of the region. One of the largest and most significant of these breweries was the Becker Brewing and Malting Company of Ogden, Utah. Founded in 1892, this company deeply affected the brewing industry until its dissolution in 1965. Many of the original records kept by the company still exist and ...


Who Were They Working For? Sex Work, Working Girls, And Patriarchy In The Late 19th Century, Grace Files 2020 Rhodes College

Who Were They Working For? Sex Work, Working Girls, And Patriarchy In The Late 19th Century, Grace Files

The Macksey Journal

In the Late 19th century, America’s “wild west” was notorious for its sex trade. Some historians argue that the women who participated in sex work were victims of a patriarchal society, yet others claim such women were empowered. While late 19th century sex workers challenged certain aspects of patriarchy, they remained unable to escape from their overarching patriarchal society; their lives and work must be re-examined through a more nuanced lens.

The Role Of Women Within The Mine Wars, Kirsten Hylton 2020 West Virginia University

The Role Of Women Within The Mine Wars, Kirsten Hylton

West Virginia University Historical Review

This paper examines the impact that the Mine Wars had on women who lived within the mine camps directly affected by labor unrest. While women were usually not the ones on the front lines of the Mine Wars, they still were impacted by and involved with the action. Just like the men of the camps, women were evicted from their homes, brutalized by mine guards, and were forced to change their lives. Assuming that the events of the Mine Wars were perceived in the same way by both men and women would be leaving out a large portion of the ...


Japanese Economic Aggression, Organized Labor’S Resistance, And The Path To World War Ii, Thomas Miles 2020 West Virginia University

Japanese Economic Aggression, Organized Labor’S Resistance, And The Path To World War Ii, Thomas Miles

West Virginia University Historical Review

This paper examines economic aggression from the Japanese fishing fleet beginning in 1936 and the response from organized labor in America prior to the famous attack on Pearl Harbor. The focus of this is research is primarily from the perspective of American labor, drawing heavily on the Voice of the Federation newspaper, which was a publication owned by the Maritime Federation of the Pacific. The US government was aware of encroachment of Japanese floating canneries in 1936, but took little action against Japan in order to avoid worsening tensions between the two nations. However, in 1937 Harry Stuhr, the head ...

A Brief History Of The Irish And Social Mobility In Buffalo, New York From The 1830s To The 1860s, Evan B. Kennedy 2020 State University of New York College at Buffalo - Buffalo State College

A Brief History Of The Irish And Social Mobility In Buffalo, New York From The 1830s To The 1860s, Evan B. Kennedy

History Theses

The focus of this thesis is to contribute and expand upon the historiography of Irish American history in Buffalo, New York. Throughout the 1830s and into the 1860s, the Irish in Buffalo were able to become socially mobile and establish themselves as a powerful group for change in the city. It is important to acknowledge that the process to become socially mobile was not easy for the Irish migrants and their later descendants. There were countless hardships and struggles the Irish faced prior to their journey to the United States and after their arrival and settlement in Buffalo. The time ...

Roosevelt, Randolph, And Dubinsky: Minorities & American Labor In The Twentieth Century, Hunter D. Whann 2020 University of Alabama - Tuscaloosa

Roosevelt, Randolph, And Dubinsky: Minorities & American Labor In The Twentieth Century, Hunter D. Whann

The Macksey Journal

This paper argues that organized labor’s racially discriminatory practices of the early 1900s served to disenfranchise African Americans and immigrants from the political process. Because unions provided labor leaders a rank-and-file membership to mobilize in support of candidates, politicians were receptive to their preferences. Labor unions’ exclusion of minorities therefore robbed them of a voice in government. Racism abounded in the United States, but such discrimination in the labor movement served to withhold both economic and political privileges to those barred from membership. The efforts of A. Philip Randolph and David Dubinsky, both presidents of labor unions with national ...


La Mano E Il Braccio: Comparing Italian Immigrant Communities In Louisiana And Florida, 1880-1914, Keith Richards 2020 University of Central Florida

La Mano E Il Braccio: Comparing Italian Immigrant Communities In Louisiana And Florida, 1880-1914, Keith Richards

The Macksey Journal

Italian immigration patterns to Louisiana and Tampa, FL have received a good deal of scholarly attention as two separate phenomena, but they are better understood as informing one another in the evolution of southern thought in regard to Italian immigrants. Italians were the second largest non-black minority group behind Mexicans to be lynched, and in understanding the circumstances surrounding those acts of extrajudicial violence, a pattern is apparent. Lynchings of Italians in Louisiana emerged out of fear of the Black Hand (La Mano Nera), and the Mafia, whereas the sole incident of an Italian being lynched in Tampa occurred as ...
