Beginning in 1945, the Summer School began the publication and distribution of an annual Alumni Newsletter with the help of contributions from the Alumni Fund. Volunteer members of the Alumni Fund contributed one dollar for the year, which helped pay for printing and mailing costs. All extra funds were applied to the Alumni Scholarship Fund, used to “make it possible for a worthy person to attend the Summer Session.” 

Documenting more than just the latest news related to the Summer School, these newsletters are a treasure trove of history in early alcohol research, education, and treatment, including plenty of images, over time.
