AcKnoWleDgMents The Western History Association office would like to take this opportunity to thank the university of missouri, St. louis for its generous support, in particular the Center for Transportation Studies, the College of education, and the College of Arts and Sciences.

FROM THE PRESIDENT once again the WHA meets in denver, the mile High City with its back to the mountains and its eye on the great Plains. We have met here before so there is no need to extol the virtues of denver as a meeting site for our organization. The good food, cultural amenities, and all varieties of “westerness” still may be found here. We should expect that the conviviality, high scholarship, and good fun that always mark WHA conferences will be had in abundance here. We can thank our local arrangements committee co-chairs, Tom noel and Jim Kroll, for that. This year’s meeting will mark the fifty-second annual conference of the WHA, and the twelfth during the twenty-first century. It seems hard to believe, but by next year nearly one quarter of Albert l. Hurtado our annual conferences will have met during the twenty-first century. This year’s theme is “Boundary markers and Border Crossers: finding the West and Westerners.” We hope to emulate last year’s very successful presidential roundtable with a friday afternoon session called “Boundary markers and Border Crossers: Histories of Immigration in the American West.” This roundtable will feature elliott Barkan, Albert Camarillo, r. david edmunds, and erika lee who will speak about the subject from various perspectives. This event promises to be a thought-provoking keynote that will help us to consider the conference theme in a new light. The regular program sessions broadly reflect the conference theme as well as other scholarly and popular concerns of WHA members. The program committee worked for many months to assemble the panels, workshops, and special events that comprise the program. Special thanks go to committee co-chairs Brian frehner and fay Yarbrough for devoting themselves to this important but thankless task. This year’s banquet speaker will be Kirk Johnson, Chief Curator and Vice President for research and Collections for the denver museum of nature and Science. His talk is entitled, “The origin of the American West.” dr. Johnson will give us a picture of the West in deep time, a view that will provide perspective on the historical and current events that often consume us. Thanks to Patty limerick who helped to arrange dr. Johnson’s appearance. This meeting catches us in the midst of change. In July, Kevin Jon fernlund stepped down as executive director after six years of splendid service to the WHA. The WHA has found a new executive director in John W. Heaton, professor of history at the university of Alaska, fairbanks, which will now host the WHA headquarters. The partnership of WHA and uAf will provide more administrative support and technical services than the WHA has ever enjoyed. We are looking forward to a mutually beneficial relationship with uAf under John’s leadership. 6


The “next fifty Years” committee report spawned a number of changes that you will be hearing about in the newsletter and in the business meeting. one long needed development that I wish to highlight is the establishment of a standing committee on public history. This committee will promote the interests and perspective of public history within the WHA. It is my hope that the committee will foster greater membership and participation in the conference, publications, and other activities of the WHA. finally, I want to thank Kevin fernlund and John Heaton who share responsibility for the success of this year’s meeting. They worked harmoniously to assure a smooth transition from the university of missouri, St. louis to uAf. I want to thank Kevin for making sure that the 2012 program was prepared on his watch. I salute John for taking over a big job that is crucial to the welfare of the WHA. And now, I bid you enjoy the conference. Welcome to denver. Albert l. Hurtado

WELCOME TO DENVER touring The mile High City welcomes the WHA for the fifth time in 52 years. You will find it a safe, friendly, walkable town that can take your breath away. We are especially proud of our brand new History Colorado Center, which opened this April. Treat yourself as well to two other adjacent havens for historians: the denver Art museum with its native American and Western Art and the denver Public library with its Western History department. All are within a seven block walk of our hotel – or a two block walk, if you take the free 16th Street mall Shuttle. That same free bus will take you to the lower downtown (lodo) Historic district around union Station with brewpubs and restaurants. You can get a sample Thursday night with Tom “dr. Colorado” noel’s walking tour/pub crawl after the opening reception. Tourism has emerged as Colorado’s second largest economic engine. You will have a chance to explore its impact on Thursday’s bus tour with the university of denver’s Prof. Bill Philpott to north America’s largest ski resort, Vail. The white gold industry and 26 ski areas have transformed the old mining landscape, sparing only a few surviving shafts and ghost towns. An alternative Thursday afternoon choice is a walking tour of downtown and Civic Center Park with Colorado State Historian Bill Convery. Bill’s tour includes a behind-the-scene inspection of the History Colorado Center.

Saturday’s bus tour, with duane Smith – Colorado’s Homer of the Hills – and mining Historian Jay fell, whisks you to the mother lode country, “the richest Square mile on earth,” as Central City and its neighbors puffed themselves. next is red rocks outdoor Amphitheatre for a séance with the Beatles and John denver. last stop will be at the fort restaurant, Sam Arnold’s reincarnation of Bent’s fort, where Holly Arnold Kinney will entertain us. Denver’s story What prehistoric residents called the future site of denver at the junction of the South Platte river and Cherry Creek is unknown. early accounts refer to it as the Arapaho’s winter camp. Before the Arapaho, the utes were here and remain the only tribe with reservations in Colorado. latinos found gold on the site of denver in 1857 but disappear from what was initially called mexican diggings. experienced georgia prospectors, the William green russell party, discovered gold in the summer of 1858 and that october founded Auraria City. A month later, William H. larimer, a Pennsylvanian, jumped a claim and called it denver City. He and other Yankees soon chased off the southerners. The name Auraria did not reappear until 1976 with the establishment of the Auraria Higher education Center – the consolidated campus of 13


the Community College of denver, metropolitan State university of denver, and the university of Colorado, denver. You will find the mile High City a relatively healthy place economically and in its fitnessminded population. Try denver B-cyles (just insert a credit card and take out and return a bike) from any of its many downtown stands. denver is one of the few u.S. cities to be gaining population: the core city and county of denver jumped from 554,637 in 2000 to 601,158 in 2010 in a metro area of 2,543,482. growth can be credited to the establishment of the lodo and 51 other historic districts that have stabilized once declining neighborhoods. lodo transformed the old Skid row and warehouse neighborhood into million dollar lofts and myriad places to eat and drink. don’t miss lodo’s union Station, the Tattered Cover Book Store, the Wynkoop Brewing Company, established by now governor John W. Hickenlooper, and rockmount ranch Wear famous for its cowboy and cowgirl garb. The nearby South Platte Valley with its foot trails and parks includes an aquarium, elitch gardens Amusement Park, the Children’s museum, and the sports venues of mile High Stadium, Coors field and the Pepsi Center. At Platte and 15th streets, lurks denver’s oldest continually operating saloon, my Brother’s Bar, offering neoclassical hamburgers and classical music. give yourself time to enjoy the city as well as the 52nd annual convention of the Western History Association.

The Colorado Conv ention Center’s 40-foot Blue Bear statue is named, “I See What You mean” by denv er artist law rence Argent. It is a steel sculpture, encased in a fiberglass and cement composite and acts as a denv er ambassador, communicating the city’s appeal as a meeting destination.

Although vigilantism and lynchings marked the town’s early history, so too did progressivism. In 1869, 50 years before the ratification of the 19th amendment, the Wyoming territorial legislature granted women the right to vote. The following year, laramie became the first town in the nation to empanel women on a jury, thus becoming known as the “equality State.” Celebrating its 125th anniversary, the American Heritage Center. university of Wyoming has historically Image Courtesy of rick Walters, American Heritage Center. strong programs in agriculture, engineering, and geology, and continues to embrace and reflect the values of the state and its unique landscape. rich in resources, historical and natural, the university of Wyoming is home to the newly renovated William robertson Coe library, which houses the grace raymond Hebard Collection. uW is also home to the American Heritage Center, a nationally and internationally renowned archive for the study of popular culture and western Americana. departing from the conference hotel at 7:30 a.m., uW emeritus Professor dr. John logan Allen will discuss the rich and fascinating history of the front range. upon arriving in laramie, participants will tour the Wyoming Territorial Prison. established in 1872, it is one of only three remaining federally constructed penitentiaries in the western u.S. The Territorial Prison offers a glimpse into the rough and tumble early days of Wyoming and a window into the life of Butch Cassidy, for it is here, and only here, that he served time. following the removal of prisoners to the newly built state penitentiary in rawlins, Wyoming, the university of Wyoming purchased and adapted the prison buildings and grounds for use as an agricultural experiment station (1903-1989) for the uW College of Agriculture. At noon participants will dine in Coe library while enjoying a symposium provided by university of Wyoming history faculty and students, followed by a tour of the library. A tour of the American Heritage Center concludes our visit to laramie. returning to denver and crossing near the highest point on the transcontinental railroad, the university of Wyoming’s dr. Phil roberts will discuss and contextualize the history of Wyoming as we pass by the lincoln monument, the Ames monument, and segments of the lincoln Highway. the bus tour begins and ends at the grand Hyatt Denver Hotel. seating is limited. lunch is included. ticket and WHA name Badge required.

Climbing, winding, slicing, and tunneling its way through the mountainous heart of Colorado, Interstate 70 west of denver might be far less famous than route 66, but it is every bit as much a highway of tourist history. This tour will trace the path of post-World War II recreational development, as faded mining towns and quiet ranching valleys turned into the motel clusters and ski resorts of a new mass outdoor leisure age. Sights and stops along I-70 include the mining-turned motel town of Idaho Springs, the preserved Victorian village of georgetown, the second-home sprawl of Summit County, and, time and traffic permitting, the remarkable masterplanned resort town of Vail, equally admired as an island of eurosophistication in the rockies and reviled as a plastic theme park of elitism and environmental destruction. university of denver historian Bill Philpott will guide our tour, and our conversation about the cultural, political, and environmental dimensions of the postwar leisure boom. 6 hours, 182 miles roundtrip, denver to Vail to denver. the bus tour begins and ends at the grand Hyatt Denver Hotel. seating is limited.

Digital frontiers: A Digital History Workshop Are you curious about how the new model scholarship of the “digital turn” promises to impact your research methods and scholarly communication practices? Would you like to find out what is out there on the web for western historians? do you teach western history with digital media, or do you just want to find out what people are doing in those "smart" classrooms? do you work in a museum, archive or public agency and have questions about the open-source or free tools to create digital archives, web-based exhibits of digital content, "web 2.0" ways to involve the public? This digital history workshop is an opportunity for those in our membership interested in the increasingly significant role that technology plays in research, teaching, and public history, to gather virtually and in person, to discuss digital frontiers before, during, and after the conference. All are welcome–from the digital guru to the techno-novice–to come together and ask questions, share ideas and join in conversations online prior to the conference. We invite potential workshop participants to use the blog, "digital frontiers" - whadigitalfrontiers.wordpress.com - to share their interests and favorite resources before we meet in person to hear some brief presentations, ask questions about resources, tools, and best practices, and take away some exciting ideas to ponder while we develop a lively western digital history community. All conference-goers are welcome to drop in and sit in on any part of the session. facilitator:

FROM THE PROGRAM COMMIT TEE fifty years ago the Western History Association held its second annual meeting, in a locale the program proudly dubbed “Queen City of the Plains.” That city was denver, Colorado. The program listed only thirteen sessions in 1962, but the list of presenters read like a Who’s Who of western historians and featured such prominent figures as Howard lamar, William goetzmann, and leonard Arrington among others. few women, and none as presenters, found their way onto the program in the “Queen” city, and the scene looked much the same three years later when WHA members met in Helena, montana, or “Queen of the mountains.” five decades later, practitioners of western history convene once again in denver but the voices speaking this year reveal that women, and many others who did not appear on early programs, have much to say about the heritage of this region. The history of the WHA reveals a past with permeable boundaries and fluid borders that remain open to new members whose presence and ideas have remade the association. Collectively, western historians continue to redefine the study of this region by locating the West in new places outside traditional political boundaries and with new stories told in diverse voices. The program we have assembled reflects the creative tension between older and newer perspectives among western historians during the fifty years that have passed since the WHA’s first denver meeting. Past and present find their way onto the program in many sessions. This year marks the 150th anniversary of the Homestead Act, a law that to some represents the blessings of westward expansion and to others a curse. What better way to mark the anniversary of this important historic moment than to evaluate the impact of the legislation on native people and consider the perspective north of the border among Canadians who watched it unfold? This year national politics thrust the mormon religion into Americans’ consciousness as many confronted the prospect for the first time of a mormon leader as President of the united States. one session traces the religion’s legacy in the region and another explores its impact on native people. Historians have chosen Colorado as a meeting place now and in the past, but so too have many generations of border crossers and boundary makers who travelled here in search of work in sugar beet fields, gold in rivers and streams, and energy embedded in the state’s grasslands and coal deposits. The program includes stories of these migrations that illuminate the region as well as our host city’s contested pasts. A presidential session re-visits the topic of immigration, and the Committee on race in the American West has assembled a roundtable that explores community activism in the mile High City. As always, the program includes multiple panels and roundtables that explore gender, environmental history, experiences of indigenous populations, race, and public history. Collaboration and partnerships have integrated new members into the association and provided access to teachers and researchers who work within and outside of the academy. We are happy to continue partnering with the library of Congress to offer teaching sessions that complement the research scholars are presenting at this year’s meeting. Teaching sessions showcase sources available through the library of Congress to incorporate in the classroom, pedagogical contributions of K-12 instructors, community college offerings as well as digital and web-based research and 30


FROM THE PROGRAM COMMIT TEE instructional tools. The program reflects the WHA’s continued relationship with the Charles redd Center to sponsor K-12 teaching awards and provide a forum where teachers can share their award-winning lesson plans with a much broader audience. We thank the programming committee for their efforts in reading submissions and assembling a thought-provoking schedule of panels and roundtables that reflect the wide-ranging scholarly interests, as well as the diversity, of WHA members. We thank Al Hurtado who offered support, encouragement, and leadership throughout this process as well as Kevin fernlund and Ashley lock who patiently answered our many questions and offered support at every turn. Kevin has worked tirelessly for the association, and we are grateful for all of his contributions during his tenure as executive director.

Digital frontiers: A Digital History Workshop Are you curious about how the new model scholarship of the “digital turn” promises to impact your research methods and scholarly communication practices? Would you like to find out what is out there on the web for western historians? do you teach western history with digital media, or do you just want to find out what people are doing in those "smart" classrooms? do you work in a museum, archive or public agency and have questions about the open-source or free tools to create digital archives, web-based exhibits of digital content, "web 2.0" ways to involve the public? This digital history workshop is an opportunity for those in our membership interested in the increasingly significant role that technology plays in research, teaching, and public history, to gather virtually and in person, to discuss digital frontiers before, during, and after the conference. All are welcome–from the digital guru to the techno-novice–to come together and ask questions, share ideas and join in conversations online prior to the conference. We invite potential workshop participants to use the blog, "digital frontiers" - whadigitalfrontiers.wordpress.com - to share their interests and favorite resources before we meet in person to hear some brief presentations, ask questions about resources, tools, and best practices, and take away some exciting ideas to ponder while we develop a lively western digital history community. All conference-goers are welcome to drop in and sit in on any part of the session. facilitator:

Recollections of a French Pioneer

Henry Bird Steinhauer, Ojibwe and Methodist Minister

Pierre Maturié, translated by Vivien Bosley

Isaac Mabindisa, with Daniel Johns

In 1910, young Pierre Maturié bid farewell to his comfortable bourgeois existence in rural France and travelled to northern Alberta in search of independence, adventure, and newfound prosperity. An irresistible story of pioneer life and a window onto the French experience in Canada.

In this first full-length biography of Steinhauer, Mabindisa explores the tensions inherent in the life of someone who owes allegiance to two cultures, one of which seeks to dominate the other.

S I G N AT U R E B O O K S , est. 1981 publisher of Utah & Mormon history and Western Americana Candid Insights of a Mormon Apostle The Diaries of Abraham H. Cannon, 1889-1895 Edward Leo Lyman, editor The Abraham H. Cannon diaries read like few others from the late nineteenth century. While many of Cannon’s colleagues were only functionally literate, he had elegant handwriting, a beautiful way of expressing himself, and an eye for historically important details. Because of his position as an apostle in the LDS Church, his diaries are not only mannered but substantively important.

The Nauvoo City and High Council Minutes John S. Dinger, editor These minutes of the two ruling bodies in Mormon Nauvoo, Illinois, are two of the most important primary sources for the period, a treasure trove of material relating to the religious and secular life of the early Latter-day Saints. Until now, these minutes have been kept from public view and historical research. With their publication, the way we look at early Nauvoo will be forever changed.

The Midwife A Biography of Laurine Ekstrom Kingston Victoria D. Burgess Born into a Mormon fundamentalist community in the 1930s, Kingston beat the odds and achieved an education in nursing. Her biography not only illuminates the history of an underground midwife culture in Utah but offers insights into a littleknown, secretive, communal, polygamist community as well.

WHA HISTORY The Western History Association was founded in 1961 by a group of scholar and citizen historians bound by their belief in the American West as a place rich in history and deserving of further study. “Its purpose shall be to promote the study of the north American West in its varied aspects and broadest sense,” reads the WHA’s constitution, and the association maintains this ideal by providing incentives for excellence through its prize and scholarship programs, and by offering a venue for a wide variety of scholarship during its annual conference. Although scholarship is the pride of the association, its mainstay continues to be the combination of scholar and citizen historians who formed the WHA over five decades ago. This combination has given the organization the reputation of being not only intellectually stimulating, but just plain fun.

2013 CALL FOR PROPOSALS 53rD AnnuAl conference of tHe Western History AssociAtion tucson, AriZonA, octoBer 9-12, 2013 “vitAl signs: eArtH, PoWer, lives” suBMission DeADline: sePteMBer 1, 2012 suBMission guiDelines The Program Committee for the 2013 meeting of the Western History Association invites proposals for panels, papers, and workshops for “Vital Signs: earth, Power, lives.” no region of the world has been more important than the West of north America in encouraging historians to take an environmental perspective on the past. Today that perspective has become global in scale and significance, and it is time to bring it back home for reassessing ourselves. The 2013 program committee invites proposals on the theme of checking the “vital signs,” those indicators of health and illness that societies as well as individuals need. They include such measures of well being as energy supplies and consumption, ecological and cultural diversity, the distribution of wealth and power, the ups and downs of climate, and the resilience of ecosystems and human communities. once sought for its therapeutic promise, the West is experienced with death as well as life. Think of border migrants expiring in the desert, species lost to urban sprawl, or gunfights over contested animals. At the same time westerners have enjoyed inspiring vistas, productive soils, and outdoor recreation of uncommon quality. for the program we encourage you to address such issues, along with eco-justice, forests and fisheries, dams and suburban malls. Their scope may stretch across national borders or oceans, linking resources to producers and consumers and creating empires. Proposals for interdisciplinary panels (including at least one participant from a field other than history) are especially welcome. The program committee strongly encourages full panel submissions and will consider single papers only when they can be reasonably matched with other panels or papers. When submitting an entire session or panel, include a brief abstract (250 words) that outlines the purpose of the session. Your designated contact person should submit the proposal. each paper proposal, whether individual or part of a session, should include a one- paragraph abstract and a one-page c.v., with address, phone, and email for each participant. Indicate equipment needs, if any. The committee assumes that all listed individuals have agreed to participate. electronic submissions are required and should be sent, with supporting materials, as a single document (Pdf) to wha2013call@gmail.com. 100
