Corktown, 1832 - 1847: The Founding Of Hamilton's Pre-Famine Catholic Irish Settlement, Andrew Carl Holman

Andrew C. Holman

The historiography of Irish migration to British North America in the nineteenth-century has centred predominantly on those migrants who were exiled from Ireland after the Great Famine, 1845-1850. However, a significant number of Irishmen, both Protestant and Catholic, arrived in the Canadas emigrants by choice in the years leading up to the Great Hunger. Their emigrations were often part of family economic strategies and, as such, they arrived in North America with a greater capability for early success. Irish-Canadian historiography, moreover, has focussed primarily on rural settlement, by far the most common choice of Irish migrants in the Canadas. Yet ...

The Canadian Hockey Player Problem: Cultural Reckoning And National Identities In American Collegiate Sport, 1947-80, Andrew Holman

Andrew C. Holman

This article is a study in the social history of Canadian-American relations and it performs two functions. First, it traces the increasing presence of Canadian student athletes in American collegiate hockey, 1947-80, and the efforts of coaches, recruiters, administrators, and alumni to draw Canadians to US hockey programs. By the end of the 1950s Canadian student athletes dominated the American collegiate game—a pattern that abated only in the late 1970s. Second, this essay analyzes the heated debates that emerged in these years about the threats that these students posed to American collegiate athletics and to Canadian amateur hockey. The ...

A Not-Too-Distant Mirror: The Talcott Commission (1840-43) And The Meaning Of The Border, Andrew C. Holman Mar 2013

A Not-Too-Distant Mirror: The Talcott Commission (1840-43) And The Meaning Of The Border, Andrew C. Holman

Andrew C. Holman

“Who we are” has always been defined in part by “who we’re not,” and who we’re not is often symbolized by our borders. America’s edges, its international borders, have become a critical focus of identity politics and border security - keeping out Mexican migrants, Canadian drug smugglers and other fiends - grist for the Sunday morning news show mills. However, today’s Fortress America is hardly new; students who examine America’s mid-nineteenth-century rush to solidify its national borders would find that their ancestors made a similar equation. The ways they defined their borders reflected the ways they defined ...
