- Biographical or historical data
- On 10 March 1916, the General Assembly of Virginia passed Chapter 146 which defined ardent spirits and prohibited their manufacture, sale, transportation for sale, and general distribution. It regulated sales of alcohol for medicinal purposes by requiring businesses who were legally allowed to sell alcohol, to file monthly reports. On 19 March 1918, Chapter 388 was passed requiring that common carriers keep records of quantities transported, including affidavits. These affidavits, which make up the bulk of this collection, include information on to whom the alcohol was shipped, the amount and kind received, the date of delivery, and the consignee. (Both these acts were repealed with the passage of Chapter 403, section 54 on 20 March 1920 which required that county circuit courts keep records of affidavits, taking all the paperwork off the hands of the transportation companies)
