We Remember Jellinek!


E. M. (Elvin Morton) Jellinek (1890–1963) has been described as “a key figure in the emergence of ‘a new scientific approach to alcohol’ in post-Repeal America” by Dr. Ron Roizen, alcohol historian, and as “the Renaissance Man who brought alcohol studies out of the Dark Ages” by Dr. Thomas Babor, Editor-in-Chief ofthe Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs (2015-2023), recipient of the Jellinek Memorial Award in 2005.

As outlined in this exhibit, the history of the Center of Alcohol Studies shows that Jellinek’s influence and legacy can be seen throughout the Center of Alcohol Studies, the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs, and the Summer School of Alcohol Studies.
