portraitDr. Selden D. Bacon (1908-1992) was the first director of the Center of Alcohol Studies at Rutgers University, after the Center had to move from Yale University and it found a new home at Rutgers in 1962. While at Rutgers, Bacon garnered support for a specialized library (which is still in existence today), the Journal of Studies on Alcohol (now called the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs), and a publication program for the center.

The Selden Bacon Papers were donated to the CAS Archive by Dr. Bacon’s son in 2015.
