Noam Maggor, author of Brahmin Capitalism: Frontiers of Wealth and Populism in America's First Gilded Age
Noam Maggor's history of the Gilded Age explores how the moneyed elite in Boston―the quintessential East Coast establishment―leveraged their wealth to forge transcontinental networks of commodities, labor, and transportation. With the decline of cotton-based textile manufacturing in New England and the abolition of slavery, these gentlemen bankers traveled far and wide in search of new business opportunities and found them in the mines, railroads, and industries of the Great West.
Maggor is currently a postdoctoral associate and visiting lecturer in the Department of History at Cornell University. He was previously a Charles Warren Center Fellow at Harvard University, Thomas Arthur Arnold Postdoctoral Fellow in the School of Historical Studies at Tel Aviv University, and a senior lecturer in the Department of History at Vanderbilt University.
