Smoke if you got ’em!

Cigarette Shortage cover

The Cigarette Shortage
Federal Trade Commission

Submitter: I found this as I was weeding the government documents at [a university library]. I am glad I did not grow up in the forties.

Holly: Want to know more? Here’s the FTC’s annual report for 1945. I couldn’t find this exact document online in the quick search I attempted, but page 23 (actually, page 48 of this PDF file is page 23 of the document) talks about this cigarette shortage.

There may be libraries with a reason to keep old government documents. However, the library from whence this came is not one of them. Good for you, Submitter, for finding and weeding it.
