  • Ladies of Lockbourne: Women Airforce Service Pilots and the Mighty B-17
           Flying Fortress
    • Abstract: Two articles from the Columbus Dispatch exemplify the ongoing debate about women in the military: “Women not right for all combat roles, Marines say”1 and “Famous flyer says women have place in flying—but not in combat plane.”2 While the direct link between the two is women in combat, the underlying theme is the question of what role women should play in America’s armed forces. When you take into consideration that these articles were written seventy-four years apart, it becomes all the more clear that as a society, women in the military continue to be a topic of debate. The first article appeared on Sunday, September 20, 2015, and relates to the shift in policy allowing women greater access to battlefield ... Read More

  • Pathmakers: James and Mary Jane McCleery
    • Abstract: James and Mary Jane McCleery, brother and sister born in nineteenth-century Trumbull County, Ohio, set out on sharply different directions to their life’s work—one to war, the other to medicine—but they were true to their shared ideals and pathmakers in their professions. Their lives reflected the times in which they lived as well as the way they hoped to shape those times for future generations. The storm building on the American horizon began to thunder on April 12, 1861, with the Confederate attack on Fort Sumter. President Abraham Lincoln declared a state of insurrection on April 15 and called for 75,000 volunteers to enlist for three months. Ten days later, on April 25, 1861, James McCleery ... Read More

  • From the Parish Hall to the Union Hall: Catholic Labor Education in
           Cleveland
    • Abstract: In the early decades of the twentieth century, many American Catholics searched for a way to implement social reform programs like those of the Progressive or Social Gospel movements. Consequently, after the pronouncement of the papal encyclical Quadragesimo Anno [Forty Years] in 1931, America’s Catholics determined that the solution was worker education. There was a prevalent need for labor leaders who were trained in the application of morality and ethics in the workplace. They would not divorce daily life from religion but invariably seek principled solutions. An educated lay Catholic worker epitomized a developed worker who recognized sane corrective actions to labor challenges. Implemented by committed ... Read More

  • A Conspicuous Life: George B. Christian Sr. and the Rise of Industrial
           Marion by Joel Miyasaki (review)
    • Abstract: Joel Miyasaki’s A Conspicuous Life: George B. Christian Sr. and the Rise of Industrial Marion is a comprehensive biographical examination of prominent Marion, Ohio, citizen George B. Christian Sr. The book traces Christian’s life through the lens of several personal events, from his brief stint as a young Civil War soldier to his time as one of central Ohio’s leading limestone manufacturers. Christian reflected the efforts of most promising industrialists during the late nineteenth century, and was met with both failure and noteworthy (but somewhat fleeting) successes. At the onset of the manufacturing revolution in the United States, towns across post–Civil War Ohio looked toward industry for economic ... Read More

  • The Arthurdale Community School: Education and Reform in Depression-Era
           Appalachia by Sam F. Stack (review)
    • Abstract: In the first half of the twentieth century, scholars in the United States invested their energy in examining teaching and learning. One of the popular theories of education was the Progressivist movement, led in large part by John Dewey. The Progressivists believed that students should learn practical skills and community involvement. Progressivism was utilized as a mechanism by which communities could be developed and improved through civic action. One such attempt was the Arthurdale Community School in West Virginia. The Arthurdale Community School was one of the pet projects of Eleanor Roosevelt, and funded by President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal. Eleanor Roosevelt worked with Elsie Ripley ... Read More

While antebellum Ohioans and Kentuckians held strong economic and cultural ties, she suggests that “imagined connections” across the Ohio River helped to “join disparate parts into one whole” (xviii). Ford concludes that the Union was understood “in a capacious way, as self-government predicated upon affective bonds among diverse people” (304). According to Ford, this fictive kinship between Ohioans and Kentuckians was manifested through shared religious practice, shifting racial ideologies, and a burgeoning western branch of the antislavery movement. Ultimately, these bonds became the sinews ... Read More

  • Columbus, Ohio: Two Centuries of Business and Environmental Change by
           Mansel G. Blackford (review)
    • Abstract: Mansel G. Blackford is professor emeritus of The Ohio State University and has a prodigious record of scholarship in business history stretching back over forty years. In this well-crafted study he argues that Columbus’s basic urban development can be understood as the result of two centuries of “tension . . . between business growth and environmental change” (2) and the role played by city government in mediating this tension. Put more abstractly, in Blackford’s model, business acts upon and alters the natural environment to create value; environmental resources subsequently prove to be scarce or are harmed; public policy is crafted in response. The result is the unique and ever-changing urban fabric of the ... Read More

  • “Farmers Helping Farmers”: The Rise of the Farm and Home Bureaus,
           1914–1935 by Nancy K. Berlage (review)
    • Abstract: In recent decades, the amount of research on American farm organizations has been minimal. This has surely been linked to the ever-dwindling influence of farmers and agrarian ideologies in American life. If the United States was “born in the country,” as Richard Hofstadter aptly noted, it has now mostly moved to the suburbs. But now comes Nancy Berlage, who offers a deep consideration of the origins and development of farm bureaus in American life. Berlage situates the story of the American farm bureaus within the now half-century-old framework of the “organizational synthesis.” Pioneered by historians such as Louis Galambos, Ellis Hawley, and Thomas McGraw, the organizational synthesis stresses ...

  • “Kent State”: Death and Dissent in the Long Sixties by Thomas
           M. Grace (review)
    • Abstract: Thomas M. Grace was a sophomore and student activist at Kent State University who was shot by a member of the National Guard on May 4, 1970. After decades of reflection and years of focused archival and oral history, Grace has written the most comprehensive account of activism at KSU to date. Kent State: Death and Dissent in the Long Sixties traces the development and evolution of student protest at KSU from its origins in the 1950s through the mid-1970s. Focusing on events in northeast Ohio, the book is an informative and at times troubling narrative of the conflicts that arose when the people of Portage County and the city of Kent experienced challenges to their conservative small-town way of life as KSU ...

  • “Land Too Good for Indians”: Northern Indian Removal by John
           P. Bowes (review)
    • Abstract: John P. Bowes has written a well-researched book that specifically looks at the removal of Native Americans from states north of the Ohio River in the nineteenth century. The author asserts that northern Indian removal has been largely ignored by scholars for seventy years. One notable exception to that was Grant Foreman, who in the 1930s and 1940s made comparisons between the removal of northern and southern Indians. In his historical accounts, Foreman stated that Natives in the northern states were “weaker and more primitive” (5) than the southern tribes, and as a result they “yielded with comparatively small resistance to the power and chicane of the white man” (5). When writing about these events ... Read More

  • “The Rag Race”: How Jews Sewed Their Way to Success in America and the
           British Empire by Adam D. Mendelsohn (review)
    • Abstract: This comparative history of the clothing business in America and in London is a detailed and a stimulating one. Adam D. Mendelsohn, who has also coedited Transnational Traditions: New Perspectives on American Jewish History (2014) with Ava Kahn, lucidly presents an encompassing and absorbing study about American and British groups and institutions intimately associated with the clothing world. Chronologically and topically arranged into eight chapters, this suggestive monograph revolves around two theses: Jews occupied a dominant status in the manufacturing and marketing of garments in the Atlantic world and other places during the nineteenth century. His second thesis is that Jews filled an economic niche ... Read More

  • “The Last Great Strike”: Little Steel, the CIO, and the Struggle for
           Labor Rights in New Deal America by Ahmed White (review)
    • Abstract: In contemporary society, one would be hard-pressed to believe that an event such as the 1937 Little Steel Strike ever took place. The history of the strike often reads like a work of fiction with its accounts of industrial espionage, aerial confrontations, brutal fisticuffs, bombings, gun battles, and an outright massacre. Indeed, nothing of its kind has been seen since; hence, the title of this work, “The Last Great Strike.” Although the strike plot could have easily been dreamed up in the mind of a brilliant author of fiction, the 1937 Little Steel Strike was unfortunately not a work of fiction. Instead, the strike, according to Ahmed White, is “a complex and sobering story, untold, that speaks essential ... Read More

  • The Joseph Smith Papers: Documents, Volume 3, February 1833–March 1834
           ed. by Gerrit J. Dirkmaat, et al., and: The Joseph Smith Papers:
           Documents, Volume 4, April 1834–September 1835 ed. by Matthew C.
           Godfrey, et al. (review)
    • Abstract: The next two installments of the Documents series of The Joseph Smith Papers maintain the high standard of previous volumes. The larger project, much of which is made easily accessible to students and instructors on its Web site (www.josephsmithpapers.org), will prove to be an invaluable resource for generations to come. It will particularly benefit scholars who are interested in religion, politics, gender, the frontier, and pluralism in the early American republic. These two particular volumes deeply contextualize documents produced by Smith and his LDS partners while they were laying a durable administrative and doctrinal foundation for the church. The Mormons were also installing a literal foundation for ... Read More
