Elizabeth L. O'Leary's study of Gilded Age Virginia examines the change from the master-slave relation to that of employer-employee in the household. O'Leary concentrates on the household of James H. and Sallie Dooley and the Virginia incarnation of Upstairs/Downstairs. Race plays a prominent role in this study as most of the servant positions were filled by black men and women.
