Title

Gustav Becker's United States Brewers' Association Scrapbook, 1939

Description

In 1939, Gustav L. Becker was elected to the president of the United States Brewers' Association. At the time, this was the largest brewer advocacy group in the country. This scrapbook contains mostly newspaper articles, photographs, speeches and bulletins regarding Gustav's appointment to the presidency. It also has several photographs from the 1939 Becker Products Company holiday banquet. Gustav held the position of president until he passed away in January of 1947. As president, Mr. Becker wanted small breweries to play a larger role in the brewing industry. His theory was that by having small breweries establish positive relations with their local communities, as the Becker Brewing and Malting Company had in Ogden, the threat of another prohibition would be decreased. Unfortunately, many of the large breweries did not share this same goal and adopted policies to put small breweries out of business. By the 1970s there was fewer than 100 breweries in the entire nation.
