Scope and Content

This collection is composed of copies of newspaper, newsletter and theatre program clippings; and copies of fourteen broadsides arguing for the wet vote in 1916.

Foldered separately is the series, The Vital Issue, a full page ad run daily, except Sunday, from October 2 - November 6. Two No. 18 ads were printed; one on Saturday, October 21, the other on Monday, October 23. Perhaps to compensate when the mistake was discovered, there is no No. 20 in this series of 31 ads.
