Biographical history

The Uneeda Branch of the Young Women's Christian Temperance Union was established about 1929. "Young" disappeared from the title of the branch around 1946, when a group of younger members were formed into the "Warriors". The Women's Christian Temperance Union campaigned against the use of alcohol, and called public attention to the prevalence and social and economic consequences of substance abuse.
