Albert Day (1812-1894)

Born in Maine, Albert Day was a physician, temperance advocate and leader in the treatment of alcoholism. Day was elected to the Massachusetts State Legislature in 1856 and secured a charter for the country's first alcoholism asylum. He wished to combine moral therapy with scientific treatment for the alcoholic. Day served as head of many alcoholism asylums. In 1893 he retired, taking several of his recovering patients home with him to Massachusetts.
