EARLY AA HISTORY

This is a very unique format now remastered and cleaned up.

It is a mix of AA History and a roaming through George's collection.

It is not an AA meeting or a Big Book Study but might be called an AA History Love-fest.

Mel B of Toledo, OH - sober 44 years since 4/15/1950
Mel was the "major contributing" author of the official AA biography of Bill W, Pass It On.
44 of his articles have been published in the Grapevine.
He knew Bill and Lois and is a lover of AA History and has lived much of it.

George T of Jacksonville, IL - sober 7 years and a History professor.
He is a great collector of historical material related to all aspects of AA.
Mel says George has the best archives collection he has ever seen and is completely organized.

The original tapes were labeled:

Tape-1 - side 1: OVERVIEW side 2: DR. RUSH THRU THE WASHINGTONIANS
Tape-2 - side 1: OXFORD 6ROUP TO 1930 side 2: OXFORD GROUP TO PRESENT
Tape-3 - side 1: EBBY SOBERS UP side 2: EBBY CARRIES THE MESSAGE
