Lowell and the Industrial City in Nineteenth-Century America.
Pershey, Edward Jay
OAH Magazine of History, v5 n2 p5-10 Fall 1990
Documents history of Lowell, Massachusetts, from the careful planning of town, the recruitment of farm family daughters into the labor force, the demise of the town, and Lowell's subsequent regeneration as a high technology center in the 1970s and 1980s. Suggests that the study of this town's history can illuminate the study of current U.S. urban and manufacturing cities. (NL)
