Dear Grapevine

Box of AA history

LOOK IN your basement or storage area for past AA material and become a contributor to your local archives.

My own experience relates to this. Tracing my family history had taught me not to throw away things, and over the years I had accumulated enough items related to our AA beginnings to fill several large boxes. The late Nell Wing, former secretary for Bill W. and the first General Service Office archivist, suggested I contact my area delegates. Slowly, regional archives became a reality for Minnesota. A place was found for the contents of my boxes!
