Minnesota 13 Wet Wild Prohibition Days Author and Professor Elaine Davis
Marketing Professor at St. Cloud State University Elaine Davis discusses her book "Minnesota 13-Wet Wild Prohibition Days" shortly after its publication in the summer of 2007. Davis’ book, with more than 70 photos, graphs, maps and cartoons, covers the facts and the impact of Prohibition in Stearns county, including how Minnesota 13 was made; how producers, bootleggers and local speakeasies concealed their operations; how local and federal law enforcement operated; and the crucial role German ethnicity and area Catholic churches played in the local industry.
The history also provides details about how federal raids, Leavenworth prison, Prohibition-related violence and the repeal of the 18th amendment affected moonshine producers.
