Culture Alcohol & Society Quarterly Newsletter of Kirk/CAAS Collections at Brown

Vol. III, No. 1 October/November/December 2006

This ninth new issue of the CA&SQ (since it was revived in October 2004) begins Volume III.

After “News and Notes” (News on a panel at next year’s American Studies Association meeting in Philadelphia, October 2007, Notes on the cousins of the Yale poet Leonard Bacon), this issue reports on the editor’s research on the very early days of AA.

We have omitted this issue’s scheduled section on other archives, but we have our continuing series of “Washingtonian Notes and Queries.”

This issue’s “Notes and Queries” (No. 13) provides additional notes (and queries) on the 1842 Incorporators of the Washingtonian Temperance Society of Annapolis. Finally, we include an inventory of the John Zug (1818-1843) Archives at Dickinson College, following our section on the Zug Archives at the University of Maryland last issue – John Zug, it will be remembered, was the author of The Foundation, Progress and Principles of the Washington Temperance Society of Baltimore (1842).

Next issue of this newsletter (III, 2) will again see contributions on current work at Brown, plans for future work, and results of past work from the collections and by those on the KirkWorks listserv – and a renewal, we hope, of the series on other archives.

All those who receive this and other issues are invited to contribute notes, queries, studies, and information on work in progress. –
