The Anti-Saloon League joined other organizations in the fight against the manufacture, sale and consumption of alcohol. The Prohibition Party and the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union were well established anti-alcohol organizations before the Anti-Saloon League was founded in the 1890s. Methods of achieving the goal of eliminating the saloon differed from organization to organization.
The Lincoln-Lee Legion and the World League Against Alcoholism were formed by the Anti-Saloon League to provide different weapons in their arsenal in the conflict with the liquor interests. The Lincoln-Lee Legion was a pledge-signing program aimed to appeal to young people, and the World League Against Alcoholism took the prohibition battle outside the United States to the four corners of the globe.
The Scientific Temperance Federation was dedicated to educating the public about the dangers of alcohol. They collected anti-alcohol information. Their charts were printed and distributed by the American Issue Publishing Company.
