Catalog Number 2014.011.001.001
Object Name Pamphlet
Scope & Content In 1948 Prohibitionists in Washington State tried to prohibit the sale of beer and wine in taverns, groceries, and restaurants. This 16-page pamphlet was prepared and distributed by the Citizens Liquor Control Council, Inc., "an organization of Washington citizens, devoted to liquor control that is in the public interest, and opposed to the return of prohibition." Mr. Clayton Kirkpatrick of the CHICAGO TRIBUNE wrote a series of articles about the "dry" states of Kansas, Oklahoma, and Mississippi and the reality of how "wet" they actually were. These articles are the backbone of the pamphlet, with remarks in red included by the council.

The initiative failed. This pamphlet was mailed to Floyd L. Lunsford in Anacortes. The envelope is 2014.011.001.002.
