These miscellaneous printed materials are from the Kansas Woman's Christian Temperance Union collection. The Kansas publications include annual programs for local unions, annual convention programs, conference programs for the Young People's Branch, and several issues of The Messenger, the official publication of the National Woman's Christian Temperance Union. These materials include information about Kansas WCTU programs for youth. A number of items were printed by the National Woman's Christian Temperance Union. Also included are work plans for the various departments, such as the Department of Social Morality, the Medal Contest Department, the Department of Medical Temperance, and the Department of Soldiers and Sailors, among many others. Other nationally circulated publications include The Menace to Civilization by Dr. J. W. Shults, Home Town Lights by Graccio Leggo Houlder, Temperance: Where Wine Flows by Elizabeth M. Lee, Organized Drys Must Persist by Ernest H. Cherrington, and A Trinity of Evil by Isabelle Horton. A nondescript booklet, distributed by the Anti-Saloon League of Kansas, encourages people who witness the creation, sale, or possession of liquor to discreetly record the names of suspects, description of events, and the names of witnesses and mail the booklet back. Publications from prohibition organizations other than the WCTU are also included. There are several other groups of official Kansas WCTU records on Kansas Memory. They can be found by selecting Collections - Manuscript - KWCTU/Mary Evelyn Dobbs.
