Perry K. Blatz Bio: Perry K. Blatz taught United States history and public history for more than twenty-five years before his recent retirement. He received his Ph.D. from Princeton University and has specialized in the economic and labor history of the 19th century. He is the author of Democratic Miners: Work and Labor Relations in the Anthracite Coal Industry, 1875-1925 (SUNY Press, 1994) and Eckley Miners’ Village (Stackpole Books, 2003). He is also a co-author of Keystone of Democracy: A History of Pennsylvania Workers (Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, 1999). More recently he has published articles in Western Pennsylvania History and Pennsylvania History on the 1877 railroad riots in Pittsburgh. He is currently examining the fiscal problems that bedeviled Pittsburgh and Allegheny County as they sought to fund railroad development in the 1850s.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord,
"plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope for a future."
