Pioneer as Early American Entrepreneur? Introducing Frederick Jackson Turner

I am in the midst of finalizing my dissertation proposal force defense on 08/25/2011. My proposed research employ’s Frederick Jackson Turner’s Frontier Thesis of American History. Here is a snippet:

He was forced to make old tools serve new uses; to shape former habits, institutions and ideas to changed conditions; and to find new means when the old proved inapplicable. He was building a new society as well as breaking new soil; he had the ideal of nonconformity and of change. He rebelled against the conventional.

Sound a bit like an entrepreneur or a college student? In certain cases it is both. That is where my research is focused.
