Nov. 27, 1911: Crowd Hears Hon. J. T. Shea: Gives One of the Strongest Temperance Lectures Ever Heard in the City

Not only was every seat in A.C.H. hall taken Sunday night, but fully 100 people stood for an hour and a half to listen to Hon. John T. Shea of Cambridge, ex-national secretary of the Catholic Total Abstinence Society. Shortly after 7 o'clock, Elmer D. Howe introduced the speaker of the evening, and as Mr. Shea arose he was greeted by enthusiastic applause, which continued at intervals throughout the lecture.
