Not too exciting to look at, but an important part of the Seattle Prohibition story. These are a 1920's church program from Seattle's First Presbyterian Church as well as a signed church membership card from its leader, the Rev. Mark A. Matthews. Matthews was the city's strongest temperance leader, waging a one-man war against saloons, prostitution and all other forms of vice. He went on to form the Presbyterian Church, which grew to become the first "mega-church." He used his pulpit to preach against the "hellish dangers" of the saloon and was instrumental in helping pass Washington State Initiative 3 in 1915, in which the entire state went dry several years before the rest of the nation went dry with the passing of the 18th Amendment. There is a statue of him in Denny Park.
