Christopher’s thesis is entitled, “White Power, Yellow Gold: Colonialism and Identity in the California and British Columbia Gold Rushes, 1848 – 1871.” John Findlay served as his chair. The thesis focuses on how white manliness was created, understood, and acted upon, in the California and British Columbia gold rushes. Congratulations Christopher!
