The Virginia Association for Local Self-Government was a group of Richmond, Virginia business and professional men opposed to the prohibition referendum of 1914. Among the leaders of the organization were Judge George L. Christian, former president of the Virginia State Bar Association, Dr. Stuart McGuire, a noted surgeon, and Royal E. Cabell, a distinguished lawyer and a former United States Commissioner of Internal Revenue. The Association for Local Self-Government distributed propaganda to counter the flood of literature of the Anti-Saloon League and the W.C.T.U.
