Overview

From Michigan Historical Collections, the Ohio Historical Society, Woman's Christian Temperance Union, and the Westerville Public Library
Edited by Ruth M. Bordin

"Perhaps the most significant outcome of this movement was the knowledge of their power gained by . . . conservative women . . . now there were women . . . eager to clasp hands for a more aggressive work than such women had ever before dreamed of undertaking."
Frances Willard, President of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union

Within the Temperance Movement is a story essential to understanding the emergence of middle and upper class women from the private sphere into full participation in public life. The Temperance and Prohibition Papers, reproduced on microfilm, highlight the active role played by women in the Temperance Movement placing it within the context of national and international temperance efforts.

This important collection of organizational and personal papers includes minutes, financial records, publicity files, correspondence, legal briefs, Congressional Bills and publications opening up to researchers the political strategies, internal operations and propaganda techniques of the leading temperance and prohibition organizations over more than a hundred years.
