dc.description.abstract This thesis intended to begin filling a large gap in the Humans Versus Zombies community's knowledge: many data gathering efforts focused on the Players' experiences, neglecting the Leaders. This study sought to identify basic trends among leadership in HvZ as an impetus to helping the community understand what makes a leader, and what leaders do in organizations. It also probed certain topics for potential future use as success measures, but refrained establishing any causative relationships. Seventy-four completed surveys were analyzed, containing responses from participants in 23 of the United States and two locations in the United Kingdom. Generally, this study found that HvZ leaders are heterosexual white Christian, Atheist, or Agnostic males capable of fulfilling the time commitments of running HvZ and possessing reasonably upstanding character and social acceptance. en_US
