Historical Background

The Union Signal was the official newspaper of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union. The history of the newspaper is sketched out in more detail in the Guide to the Microfilm Edition of Temperance and Prohibition Papers (Ann Arbor: The University of Michigan, 1977), pages 368-370.


Scope and Content

The first fifty-one years of The Union Signal, the official newspaper of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union, are Series XXI 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 Center has purchased 198. See also collections 64, 65, and 66.
