Henry Busby

My research centers most broadly on Gilded Age/Progressive Era U.S. history, with thematic foci on agrarian, religious, educational, and migration history. My eventual dissertation will consist of three case studies (Ionia County, MI, McLennan County, TX, and Sanpete County, UT) in which I will assess the modernization–and particularly the psychological shifts–of rural America between circa 1870 and 1920.
