Around AA - Items of AA Information and Experience

Formal Opening of Archives

Intensive work throughout 1974 and 1975 came to fruition with the opening of AA's archives, on the eighth floor at 468 Park Avenue South, New York City (in the same building as the Grapevine office and the AA General Service Office).

A ribbon-cutting ceremony was presided over by Lois W., widow of AA co-founder Bill W., and Tom S., of Jacksonville, Fla., chairman of the archives at-large committee. Tom and other old-timers have been searching records of local AA beginnings, to help the trustees' Archives Committee, which is chaired by George G. If you were at the Denver Convention, you may have seen George or other members of the board committee at work in the Bridge Lounge at Currigan Hall, taping the personal recollections of pioneer AAs from various areas.
