Banned in Boston: The Watch and Ward Society's Crusade against Books, Burlesque, and the Social Evil - Neil Miller There was a time when the label "Banned in Boston" was something that every author hoped for because it meant huge sales.

Banned in Boston tells the story of Boston's Watch and Ward Society, a group of people that got together to decide what could be read, seen, heard and just what other sort of trouble people could get into. You might call them a privately funded vice squad that had a long hey day.
