Walter Kidder And The Hayner Distillery’s Mail Order Alcohol

6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Vandalia
Community Room
During the years leading up to national prohibition Dayton was home to the nation’s largest and most profitable mail order alcohol operation.  This legal business, the brain child of Walter Kidder, aggressively marketed the products of Troy, Ohio’s Hayner’s Distillery on a nationwide basis.  Each time a county or state voted itself dry, Kidder’s operation added to its customer base.  This presentation for adults by teacher and local historian Mike Williams will track the rise and fall of this innovative business that thrived on the contradictions within America’s attitudes toward alcohol.
