1. Kaij's Study The first twin study specifically concerned with alcohol abuse was that of Kaij14 who studied all male twin pairs born in southern Sweden and in whom one or both twins had been reported to the local Temperance Board. Kaij identified 174 such pairs, and with astounding persistence succeeded in personally interviewing 292 individual twins. Kaij classified the drinking habits of his twins in two ways. First, he used the information in the official registers of the Temperance Board, the state alcohol companies, and the local psychiatric clinics to allot the twins to one of five categories of increasingly severe drinking problems (Table I).

The evidence regarding the color vision findings is confusing, but close attention to the methodology of any further studies in this area should help to clear up the confusion quite quickly. The question remains with respect to these three findings of whether the changes are caused by alcohol intake or are present before excessive alcohol intake begins. Family studies involving the nonalcoholic sibs of alcoholics and prospective assessments in the children of alcoholic parents would answer this question.

Their methods are summarized in Tables III and IV, and their work is here reviewed in detail. 1. Roe's Study The first study of the adopted-away offspring of abnormal drinkers was that of Roe and her colleagues,27,28 which is remarkable not only in that it employed the adoptive strategy some 20 years before its general value for genetic research in psychiatry was realized but also for the detailed interviews and the large amount of data collected. Roe compared 36 fostered children whose biological fathers were "alcoholics" with 25 fostered controls whose biological parents were well adjusted without known history of psychiatric disorder or alcoholism.
