The Social Science Research Council authorized the formation of an advisory committee to conduct a national survey of the records available in public and private agencies and institutions that would be of value to a study of the social consequences of the Eighteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, adopted in 1920, which prohibited the manufacture, transportation and sale of intoxicating beverages. The purpose of the committee was to organize and conduct a survey of primary sources and suggest future research. By 1926 the committee had completed its study and issued a report to the Council.
