What’s New from the Archives of the Harbor Area Central Office
The Historical Documents contains the new Document — Works Publishing – AA Self Publishing. One of the great things with people starting to know me as the Harbor Area archivist is they’re bringing me stuff for the archives! The other day I received an *original *copy of a June 1940 stockholders report from *Works Publishing*, which was created to enable AA to self-publish the first edition of the Big Book. This little pamphlet tells the story of how *Works Publishing *was created, the folks involved as well as financial accounting.

Before there was a "Big Book", Twelve Steps, Twelve Traditions, the "AA Grapevine" or General Service -- before there were meetings, clubs, conventions or any AA literature -- before there was an H&I committee, there was a visit to an Akron hospital where "one drunk talked to another."
