The notion was abandoned when it became clear that such a record would fill at least another book as large as this one. It seemed pointless, when such a vast quantity of material was available, to print the titles of a hundred or two hundred references.

Bruce Brougham, New York, 1930; The Dry Decade, by Charles Merz, New York, 1931; Dry Messiah, The Life of Bishop Cannon, by Virginius Dabney, New York, 1949.
