Hunt County, 1915: Arrests for 'adultery;' trouble with drug addiction

Carol Taylor
Hunt County Historical Commission

Hunt County Historical Commission chairman Carol Taylor, who regularly reviews history from 100 years ago, says in 1915 a woman was arrested for "adultery" (what we would today refer to as prostitution), and newspapers of the time indicate that problems with drug addiction existed then, too.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
