Ernest Cherrington Series.

Identifier: CN 066

Scope and Contents

Office files, executive committee files, and personal files kept by Ernes Cherrington, a leading prohibition advocate of the early twentieth century. Important in the Anti-saloon League of America, and in several anti-liquor publishing interests.

The Ernest Hurst Cherrington papers are Series XIII of a twenty-one-series microfilming project done between 1975 and 1977 with the cooperation of three repositories holding significant papers relating to temperance and prohibition: the Michigan Historical Collections (Ann Arbor), the Ohio Historical Society (Columbus), and the Woman's Christian Temperance Union (Evanston, Illinois). The project resulted in 426 Reels of Microfilm, of which the Billy Graham Center Archives purchased 198. See also collections 64, 65, and 67, other series in the Papers.

The papers for this collection and their provenance are described in detail in the Guide to the Microfilm Edition of Temperance and Prohibition Papers (Ann Arbor, MI: The University of Michigan, 1977), pages 239-320. An index to selected correspondents begins on page 319.

See Guide to the Microfilm Edition of Temperance and Prohibition Papers, page 239ff. This book is located in the Reading Room, topical shelf DD. Users should also read the "Note to Researchers," page xv, prior to actual research.
