portraitRaymond McCarthy (1901-1964) was perhaps the first major figure to rise to prominence from within the alcohol studies field itself. He was also the pioneer of modern alcohol education.

McCarthy was associated with the Center of Alcohol Studies from 1944 until his death in 1964 in various capacities, including director of the Yale Plan Clinics, director of the Summer School of Alcohol Studies, and professor of education.
