Santa Barbara Maritime Museum Lecture: The Real McCoy
Erik Davis | On 09, Jul 2017
Bill McCoy was the pioneer rum runner of the Prohibition era, who fuelled the Roaring Twenties by transporting over 2 million bottles of alcohol to the Speakeasies of New York.
McCoy was a “Tea Totaller,” who never broke the law and never diluted his alcohol, which is why he became known as “The Real McCoy.” Lecture presented by Bailey Pryor.
