AbstractThis paper pays tribute to a pioneer in addiction science, Elvin Morton Jellinek, born 125 years ago. The authors were inspired to look into Jellinek’s pre-alcohol years while compiling his comprehensive bibliography. This article shares their results in Hungarian for the first time. Jellinek’s role in laying the foundations of a multidisciplinary field is not considered smaller due to his mysterious background and gaps in his biography, also related to his recently verified Hungarian origin. Instead, his complex approach to the alcohol problem, reflected by his complete bibliography, might be better interpreted with an awareness of his past.
