Cultural Entrepreneurship in nineteenth-century Boston

One of the first papers I have come across my research in CulEnt is a paper entitled “Cultural Entrepreneurship in nineteenth-century Boston: the creation of an organizational base for high culture in America” by Paul Dimaggio, published in the Journal “Media, Culture and Society” (1982 4, 33-50).
