The life, work, and mysteries of E. M. Jellinek


A unique collection of images, documents, and objects related to E. M. Jellinek (1890–1963). A key figure in alcohol studies, "Bunky" has strong ties to the history of the Center of Alcohol Studies through the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs, publications, and the Summer School. Although Jellinek left Yale before the Center moved to Rutgers in 1962, his ideas and legacy were very much alive and shaped the Center’s goals.
