Anti-Consumption League

Anti-Consumption League
Nashville Globe – February 1, 1907
Pg. 2

The Anti-consumption League met at the First Baptist Church with large attendance. After the object of the meeting was stated by the president, Dr. R. F. Boyd, many physicians expressed themselves as to their intentions to do all in their power to push this work to success. Dr. Merrill, president of Fisk University, was present. He complimented this move and brought out many interesting points, and asked the physicians had they ever thought why it was that this dreaded disease seemed to be more prevalent among the boys than girls, as it seemed to be rule in his school?

As the physicians are anxious to create an interest, by common consent of the league, the President was authorized to appoint physicians to speak at the various churches providing it met the approval of the Minister’s League of the city. The following appointments were made for Sunday, February 3:

  • St. Paul, Dr. J. H. Hale
  • Mt. Olive, Dr. F. A. Steward
  • Clark Memorial, Dr. R. F. Boyd
  • Spruce Street Baptist – Dr. A. M. Townsend
  • Little Bethel – Dr. H. T. Geeder
  • First Baptist – Dr. S. S. Caruthers
  • First Baptist, East Nashville – Dr. G. H. Bandy

The meeting was adjourned to meet at St. John’s A.M.E. Church, Thursday night, Feb. 7.
