Scope and Contents note

The collection contains two letters written to Lewis J. Tutt, the New Jersey Deputy Prohibition Administrator, praising his work for prohibition. One letter, written on 5 November 1931, by Elizabeth B. Dickinson, editor of the White Ribbon News in Morristown, New Jersey. In it, she not only praises Tutt for his work, but also turns informant by detailing the activities of a house as "the worst kind of a nuisance." [An interesting note is that while Dickinson's signature is almost completely obliterated, she wrote on personalized stationery.]

The other letter is a short congratulatory note, written on 25 November 1931, by State Superintendant of the Anti-Saloon League of New Jersey, James K. Shields.

Biographical/Historical note

In 1931, Lewis J. Tutt was the Deputy Prohibition Administrator of New Jersey.
