I have spent many years studying US ethnic, immigration and labor history.  In so doing I have focused on 19th century nativism, organized labor, and the needle trades. Currently I am continuing to study the connection between labor and immigration while serving on the executive board of the New York Labor Association while reviewing books on labor history for the association, the History News Network, and the Journal of American History.
