David Leigh Colvin

D. Leigh Colvin was born in Charleston, South Carolina on 28 January 1880. He spent most of his life in New York, where he was an historian and a temperance society executive.  From 1926 until 1932, Colvin was Chairman of the Prohibition National Committee. 
      Colvin several times ran for office on the Prohibition ticket.  His masterful Prohibition in The United States published in 1926, is the standard reference on the history of the Prohibition Party up to that time.
