1911  The trial of U.S. v. 40 Barrels and 20 Kegs of Coca-Cola began. The trial featured evidence from now-classic studies by Harry Hollingworth of the effects of caffeine on mental functions. Hollingworth began his research on February 3, 1911, and testified on March 27, 1911. The court acquitted Coca-Cola on June 13, 1914. Hollingworth was president of the APA in 1927.
