Three Generations Of Planter -Businessmen: The Tayloes, Slave Labor, And Entrepreneurialism In Virginia, 1710-1830, Laura Croghan Kamoie Jan 1999

Three Generations Of Planter -Businessmen: The Tayloes, Slave Labor, And Entrepreneurialism In Virginia, 1710-1830, Laura Croghan Kamoie

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

This study analyzes the entrepreneurial estate-building activities of three generations of the Tayloe family of Virginia from the 1710s to the 1820s. The three John Tayloes were model planter-businessmen---that is, they combined mixed commercial agriculture with a variety of business enterprises in an effort to secure long-term financial security and social status for themselves and their heirs. This diversified approach to plantation management characterized early Virginia's "culture of progress"---an early American business culture interpreted in many different ways throughout the colonies (and later the states) that had the pursuit of a better life as its organizing premise.;The ...


Eying Italians: Race, Romance, And Reality In American Perception, 1880--1910, Joseph Peter Cosco Jan 1999

Eying Italians: Race, Romance, And Reality In American Perception, 1880--1910, Joseph Peter Cosco

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

This dissertation explores how American representations of Italians and Italian Americans engaged, reflected and helped shape the United States' developing concepts of immigration, ethnicity, race, and national identity from 1880 to 1910, when masses of Italian and other "new immigrants" rigorously tested the country's attitudes and powers of assimilation. In a larger sense, the research examines how the process of constructing the modern Italian/Italian American was part of the process of America constructing for itself a modern national identity for a new century.;The dissertation looks at a variety of "texts," including journalism, travel literature, autobiography, fiction, and ...


Wild Yankees: Settlement, Conflict, And Localism Along Pennsylvania's Northeast Frontier, 1760-1820, Paul Benjamin Moyer Jan 1999

Wild Yankees: Settlement, Conflict, And Localism Along Pennsylvania's Northeast Frontier, 1760-1820, Paul Benjamin Moyer

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

Pennsylvania's northeast frontier---a region embraced by the upper reaches of the Delaware and Susquehanna Rivers---was the scene of a bitter and, at times, bloody backwoods dispute. Here Yankees (settlers and speculators holding deeds from Connecticut land companies) fought Pennamites (settlers and landlords who claimed land under Pennsylvania) for land and authority. This contest began in the 1760s and lasted till the first decade of the nineteenth century and, for a time, pitted Connecticut against Pennsylvania in a bitter jurisdictional conflict. This study focuses on the dispute after the revolutionary war when the federal government awarded the contested territory to ...

Fashionable Dis-Ease: Promoting Health And Leisure At Saratoga Springs, New York And The Virginia Springs, 1790-1860, Thomas A. Chambers

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

Throughout the early years of the American republic and the first half of the nineteenth century, people journeyed from across the nation and Europe to the bubbling mineral springs of upstate New York and western Virginia in search of a medical cure and pleasant company. Promoters lauded the springs for their restorative powers, fashionable clientele, and picturesque scenery. These dubious attributes combined with the profit motive to create one of the earliest and most successful components of the American tourism and leisure industry. Marketing and producing the mineral waters, as well as the spa experience itself, involved innovation, business acumen ...


By The Book: Advice And Female Behavior In The Eighteenth -Century South, Catherine Kerrison Jan 1999

By The Book: Advice And Female Behavior In The Eighteenth -Century South, Catherine Kerrison

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

What did it mean to be a white female in the eighteenth-century South? This dissertation proposes an answer to this question by using the most widely circulated prescriptive literature (sermons, conduct-of-life advice, newspaper essays, and novels) for women and examining the ways in which women responded to it. In an age in which the focus of female education was identity rather than vocational training, this burgeoning literature was fraught with meaning for women, for it was the source of their understanding of themselves and how they should live their lives. This project shows how women were selective consumers of the ...
