1920 - In the year that William M Carnes was born, the Volstead Act became law. Formally called the National Prohibition Act, the Volstead Act enabled law enforcement agencies to carry out the 18th Amendment. It said that "no person shall manufacture, sell, barter, transport, import, export, deliver, or furnish any intoxicating liquor except as authorized by this act" and defined intoxicating liquor as any beverage containing more than 0.5% alcohol by volume.

1947 - At the age of 27 years old, William was alive when on November 25th, the Hollywood "Black List" was created by the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC).
