Title: Citizens Smoke Abatement League Papers, 1917-1935


The Citizens Smoke Abatement League of St. Louis grew out of the Smoke Abatement Committee of the Chamber of Commerce. The league was incorporated on March 27, 1927, "to promote and maintain an organization for smoke abatement in St. Louis and vicinity, through the agencies of publicity, technical research, education, cooperation and law enforcement." It consisted of an Executive Committee, a Board of Directors, and various levels of membership according to the amount of dues paid from $1 to $100 annually.

Collection consists of the financial records of the organization, including a ledger (1926-1935); cashbook (1926-1935); two expense journals (1927-1935); printed matter; correspondence, mainly to J.H. Gundlach, Chamber of Commerce, regarding smoke abatement in 1925, 1926; monthly statements and accounts, 1927-1933; two bankbooks, 1926 and 1927-1935; undated by-laws; and list of subscribers to the organization.
