Abstract My thesis advisor, Dr. Michael Logan, deserves my utmost thanks for the time, patience, and knowledgeable insight he invested into this project. I want to especially thank him for the two weeks he spent making revisions. I apologize to him for my procrastination and I appreciate his understanding. I also extend my gratitude to my other committee members. The optimism and constructive criticism of Dr. Elizabeth Williams not only greatly benefited my thesis but also sustained me through my first semester of graduate school when I had misgivings about finishing the program. The last minute acceptance of Dr. James Huston in replacing Dr. Richard Rohrs allowed me to finish sooner. I appreciate Dr. Huston for taking the time out of his schedule to sit on my committee. I would also like to thank Dr. Rohrs for his participation on my committee. Although not on the final committee, he helped me to improve my writing and historical knowledge and he always offered positive, uplifting encouragement. I appreciate the work of Dr. Bill Bryans and the Department of History in providing the scholarships and financial support that funded my research. I also want to thank my friend, Skye Murray, for her encouragement. Sometimes she kept me on task and sometimes she distracted me but she always made the experience more enjoyable. Dr. Brad Duren also deserves special mention. His passion for history was the reason I considered graduate work. Our department secretaries, Susan Oliver and Diana Hover, made the application process far easier and more personable than any other iii history graduate school for which I applied and they have helped me with dozens of office projects. Dr. Ron Petrin and Mark Furnish both offered insight and encouragement
