E. M. Jellinek (a.k.a. “Bunky,” 1890–1963) stands out as one of the most important founders of alcohol and addiction studies in the modern era. He also laid down the foundations of the current Center of Alcohol Studies Library (Busch Campus). Because of his profound influence on the field, historians have attempted to document his unique career and evaluate its relevance to contemporary addiction science. Here, the librarians at the Alcohol Studies Library present the “Bunky Bundle,” a compendium of works by and related to Jellinek.

The bundle is divided into three sections. The first three articles are from the May 2016 issue of the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs—a journal Jellinek helped establish. These articles (linked below) will be of interest to younger addiction scientists, as well as those who have established careers in the addiction field. The rest of the “Bunky Bundle” is available on the journal’s website and includes a “Top Ten” section of Jellinek’s most influential and highly cited articles and an “Extras” section for those interested in reading further about Jellinek’s contributions to the field of alcohol studies.
