Introduction
The idea for a slide rule device to make simple estimates of the concentration of alcohol circulating in an individual's blood after consumption of various bev­erages was first put into practice by Dr.
Leon A. Greenberg of the Rutgers Uni­versity Center of Alcohol Studies in 1971. The present copyrighted ALCO-CAL­CULATOR, although the same in princi­ple as the original, makes certain simpli­fying revisions, and extends its use to females.
