The Unfolding of American Labor Law: Judges, Workers, and Public Policy across Two Political Generations, 1790-1850

Acknowledgments

It is a pleasure to thank the many people who have taken the time to help this project along. My greatest debt is to Morton Keller, who guided this study at Brandeis University. Bill Nelson and Michael Willrich were gentle critics and served as members of my committee. I cannot claim to have followed all their good counsel and do not attach to them any of my interpretive conclusions. But I can say that each is not only an admirable historian, but together they represent an unusually open-minded and collegial approach to the study of the past. If the word gentleman still retains any of its positive connotations, I think it applies equally to all three of these generous scholars.

A Crown Fellowship at Brandeis University provided the initial support for this project. My ability to carry it to completion owes much to my academic home at Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh, New York. I am most grateful to my students and my colleagues for making the work we do so much fun. In particular, I would like to thank my fellow historians Stan Pycior and John Reilly for many hours of enthusiastic conversation and debate. Lawrence T. Force was a wonderful mentor to me from the outset, and it has been a pleasure to work with him as a scholarly collaborator. The support I received from administrators was essential to the completion of this work. I happily thank Sisters Ann Sakac and Agnes Boyle, who serve as true ambassadors for the Dominican tradition. President Kevin E. Mackin, OFM, Academic Vice President Iris Turkenkopf, and Division
