The Ohio Anti-Saloon League was organized at Oberlin 1893 in the interest of temperance and in opposition to all saloons in the state; a similar league was organized 1893 in the Dist. of Columbia. These and more than 40 similar organizations founded the Anti-Saloon League of Am. 1895, which pressed for adoption of the 18th Amendment to the US const. (adopted 1919; effective 1920; repealed 1933) and became known as the Nat. Temperance League 1948, which absorbed the Temperance Leagues of Am. and the Nat. Temperance Movement 1950.
