What order did you run latex and bibtex in?  The usual sequence would

latex masterfile.tex	[possibly several times to get cross-references
 			right; among other things, this creates
 			masterfile.aux, which contains a summary of
 			the citations that were in masterfile.tex]

bibtex masterfile	[this uses the citation summary in
 			masterfile.aux to decide which of the entries
 			in thesisrefs.bib are relevant, and puts those
 			in masterfile.bbl]

latex masterfile.tex	[again, possibly several times; this genrates
 			the dvi file, including the references from masterfile.				bbl.]
