As I began researching my senior thesis project (centering on the Anti-Saloon League in Westerville, Ohio) I remembered coming across Fitchburg's premiere temperance worker, Frederick Fosdick.
I've come across a few documents online that link Frederick Fosdick to a group called the "Roosevelt Eighteen." I'm still researching exactly what that group was formed in response to. I believe it has something to do with Theodore Roosevelt and the 1912 Presidential election whereupon he formed the Bull Moose Progressive Party.
Time will tell...(well, Time has already told, I just need to find where it told it!)
