In 1999, the University of Alabama established the Center for the Study of Tobacco and Society in order to preserve the materials held in the archive and to serve as an international resource on tobacco issues.
The primary purpose of the Center for the Study of Tobacco and Society is to explore, investigate, compare and contrast the historical and contemporary aspects of the tobacco issue and the role and influence of tobacco in society through an interdisciplinary approach that involves research, professional education, and community outreach.
Images in our History Galleries were provided by The Center for Study of Tobacco in Society , and were digitized by Julia Purpera and Kristin Kelly from Roswell Park Cancer Institute.
