Committee of Fourteen (New York, N.Y. : 1905)

Hide Profile

The Committee of Fourteen was founded in 1905 as a citizens' association dedicated to the abolition of saloons that provided rooms for prostitution (called "Raines Law hotels".) By 1911 most of the saloons had closed up and the Committee's focus turned to the suppression of commercialized vice in New York City with an emphasis on prostitution. By the time the Committee was dissolved in 1932, the focus included crime prevention as well.
