Abstract:
In the early 19th century, North Carolina experienced the first fold mining boom in North America. By the 1830s a federal branch mint had been built in Charlotte and occupations in gold production were second only to agriculture. North Carolina's mines received a great deal of attention from northern and foreign venture capitalists, who brought not only investment but skilled labor and management to the deep mines of the Piedmont. Many of these skilled miners were Cornishmen, who brought their mining heritage, refined over centuries of experience, into this new field of opportunity.

Abstract:
As physicians orient toward a changing health care system, they increasingly establish secondary and tertiary practice locations. Sixteen percent of North Carolina's physicians had multiple locations during 1992.

Abstract:
Agriculture is the predominant economic activity in south-central North Carolina. Though abundant arable land is available for increased production, expansion and refinement is often hindered by frequent and sometimes severe droughts, associated with high temperatures and sandy soil. Ross argues for increased rates and levels of irrigation that would result in a more consistent and higher quality product.
