Temperance and Prohibition in Vermont 1800-1933

Travis Puller, a project archivist in Special Collections, has assembled a fascinating exhibit that examines temperance and prohibition in Vermont from 1800-1933. He selected pamphlets, letters, photographs, broadsides and ephemera that document the successful efforts of temperance organizations to ensure statewide prohibition for over fifty years (1850-1902). The materials also reveal the unprecedented illicit production, sale and transportation of alcohol that flourished during the shorter period of national prohibition (1920-1933). The exhibit can be viewed in Special Collections (ground floor) Monday-Friday from 9-5 throughout the summer.
