documents and information about the mechanical man were provided by
archivist William K. Beatty at the Willard
Memorial Library in Evanston, Illinois, who diligently searched
the WCTU archives and state histories for references to the mechanical
man. Mr. Beatty has since passed away, but we thank him for the information
he contributed here.
And thank you to Dr. Roger Roffman for giving us this wonderful bit
of alcohol history!
