Default AA History

Something I posted on another site that I got on another site, not sure if it is here or not.


AA History

The New York World-Telegram reported on the dinner held
in honor of the tenth anniversary of Bill W’s sobriety
(December 11, 1934). That newspaper erroneously called
it the 10th anniversary of the founding of AA. There were
1500 members in attendance that night at the Commodore Hotel.

The New York Herald Tribune recounted that Bill's report
of AA’s 10 year history was impressive. AA went from 15
alcoholics released from the "drinking habit" in the first
year to 40 "conversions" after 3 years. At the end of 4
years there were 100 members, and the book Alcoholics
Anonymous had been written. After nearly 10 years there
were more than 12,000 members in 370 groups throughout
the United States and Canada and a "new unit" functioning
successfully in Hawaii (Hawaii would not become a state for
another 15 years - in August of 1959).

Love always,
