The Butte Irish: Class and Ethnicity in an American Mining Town, 1875-1925
This book began in 1982 when Catherine Dowling, a graduate student from Dublin, burst into my office with the news that she had found some Clan-na-Gael records at the World Museum of Mining in Butte. She used a part of those records to prepare her M.A. thesis. Later that year Michael Garrity uncovered some more 'Irish stuff' at the museum, incorporating it into his senior honors papers.
