Archibald Wasson was the Prohibition candidate from Livingston County, N.Y. in the 1904 New York State Assembly race. He lost the race to Republican James Wadsworth, who later went on to have a successful career in Congress. Although not much is known about Wasson, the Prohibition Party has campaigned to end the manufacture, distribution, and sale of alcohol since 1869.
