Alan Casline graduated from St. Lawrence University in 1973 and received his PhD from SUNY Albany. He established Rootdrinker Institute in 1973 and began publishing Rootdrinker magazine in 1975. He has championed local culture, art, music, poetry, organics, and a "back to the land" philosophy through the Rootdrinker Institute and Benevolent Bird Press, as well as through talks, lectures, concerts and other events.
