Prohibition’s Proving Ground: Cops, Cars, & Rumrunners in the Toledo-Detroit-Windsor Corridor, by Joseph Boggs 

Please join the Center for Archival Collections in welcoming Joseph Boggs to Jerome Library for a presentation on the book Prohibition’s Proving Ground: Cops, Cars, & Rumrunners in the Toledo-Detroit-Windsor Corridor (The University of Toledo Press, 2020), winner of the CAC’s Local History Publication Award in the Academic Scholar Division.   

Booze. Fast (and not-so-fast) cars.  The 18th amendment and other dry legislation.  Joseph Boggs explores how northwestern Ohio, southeastern Michigan, and southwestern Ontario residents navigated Prohibition and the demand for illicit alcohol.  In particular, Boggs analyzes how the rise of automobiles affected the success of law enforcement and smugglers alike. 

Books will be available for sale at the event.  All are welcome.
