Series 6
Youth Temperance Council records, 1938-1981
Box 28, CLP2, AV1

Scope and Content Note

Series 6 contains records that document the programs and activities of the Youth Temperance Council. Some of the papers were created by officers of the Georgia WCTU while others originated at the national level. The records include a copy of the organization's constitution, as well as copies of operational manuals. The folder of correspondence, the six folders of program materials, and the sequence of national bulletins running from 1953 to 1971 contain the most substantive information. The records concerning the YTC camp document the growth and operation of a part of the Georgia WCTU youth program that succeeded. The remainder of the records, including financial material, reports, lists, collected material and memorabilia, are fragmentary at best.

The arrangement of the YTC records parallels the arrangement of the collection as a whole beginning with papers related to the Georgia operation followed by material from the national office and then by items from other organizations. Related information can also be found in most other series but particularly in Series 1, Correspondence, and Series 8, National WCTU Records, which contains an audio cassette recording of speeches made by national president Glenn A. Hays dealing with topics of interest to young people. Photographs of YTC groups and of YTC camp are located in Series 11, Photographs and Memorabilia.
