Precedent-Breaking Award To AA's Co-Founder

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J.--The E. M. Jellinek Memorial Award was presented posthumously to William Griffith Wilson, who co-founded Alcoholics Anonymous in 1935. Wilson's widow, Mrs. Lois Burnbam Wilson of Bedford Hills, N.Y., asked that R. Brinkley Smithers accept the award on her behalf, at the 30th Anniversary Banquet of the Summer School of Alcohol Studies, in the Rutgers University Commons.

Prof. Mark Keller of the Rutgers Center of Alcohol Studies, a member of the Board of Directors of the E. M. Jellinek Memorial Fund, Inc., presented the award--a bronze bust of Jellinek, a distinguished biometrician and scholar in the field of alcoholism, who died in 1963.
