"The Woman’s Christian Temperance Union (WCTU) was the largest non-denominational women’s organization in 19th century Canada. Believing that alcohol abuse was the cause of unemployment, disease, sex work, poverty, violence against women and children, and immorality, the WCTU campaigned for the legal prohibition of all alcoholic beverages. Its membership was drawn from Canada’s growing middle class, and its members held evangelical Protestant views. The WCTU also advocated for women’s suffrage in Canada as a way to effect legislative change towards prohibition. The WCTU promoted the work ethic of sobriety, thrift, duty and family sanctity, and undertook community work such as reading rooms, homes for women and children, and prison reform."

In her essay on Adamson’s art, Bovey looks at the variety of media in which he works—painting, printmaking, drawing, and watercolour. She addresses the major themes that dominate and recur through all this work, including Jacob and the Angel, Lazarus, the landscape, and the Expulsion from the Garden. She examines how the artist explores these themes in each of the media, their relationships and evolution through his use of colour, line, and texture. Further, she explores the source for his inspiration and the links between his visual interest in these themes and his work as an English scholar and art critic. .
