Biographical Note

The Temperance Movement was a social movement against the sale or drinking of alcoholic beverages. In Britain, the movement reached its peak in the mid-to-late 1800s, as alcohol consumption and alcohol-related violence was a wide-spread problem. Advocates formed numerous societies and associations to combat alcoholism, each group with their own ideas about how to go about stamping out the problem. Some advocated moderation in drinking, while others espoused complete abstinence; some focused on the religious message of temperance, while others sought to put pressure on the government to pass temperance legislation. The Central Association for Stopping the Sale of Intoxicating Liquor on Sundays, centered in Manchester, England, focused on petitioning Parliament to pass legislation that would close public houses and bars on Sundays. During the 1860s and 70s, the issue became highly politicized as the Temperance Movement became closely tied to the aims of the Liberal Party.

Arrangement

The collection is organized into the following series: I. Correspondence; II. Signatures; III. Other.

Scope and Content Note

The Temperance mss., 1859-1885, consists of over two hundred letters and signatures, as well as some images, relating to the Temperance Movement in Britain. The letters date predominantly from the 1870s, a time when the Temperance Movement was emerging as an important political force in Great Britain, and are principally addressed to Edwin Barton and Robert Whitworth, leading figures in the Temperance Movement in north-west England and honorary secretaries for the Central Association for Stopping the Sale of Intoxicating Liquor on Sundays. The majority of the letters are written by politicians, relating to petitions to stop the sale of intoxicating liquors on Sundays.
