Bio/Research

I came to UBC in 1988 after teaching at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and at Duke University, where I earned my Ph.D. in U.S. History. Previously, I worked as a newspaper reporter, columnist, and editor in North Carolina, Mississippi, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania. I earned a B.A. in Russian Language and Literature from Haverford College. My first book, The Battle for Homestead, 1880-1892: Politics, Culture, and Steel, explores the world of nineteenth-century steelmaking by recounting the story of what is arguably the most infamous industrial conflict in U.S. History, the Homestead Lockout of 1892. More recently, I have been working on a project about African-American exile and emigration, race, and identity. This book reconstructs the journeys of one family of free persons of color, the Proctors and Chavouses, who left Virginia and North Carolina in 1840 and settled, successively, in Ohio, Canada, and Haiti, before returning to North America, where their scattered descendants live today.
