Eastern Mass. has a rich history in Alcoholics Anonymous. We preserve our archives so we can share that history with alcoholics who come after us.
The mission of Alcoholics Anonymous in Area 30 Archives is to permanently document the work of Area 30 and its Districts, to make the history of the organization accessible to A.A. members and other researchers, and to provide a context for understanding Alcoholics Anonymous’ progression, principles, and traditions.
“Whenever a society or civilization perishes there is always one condition present; they forgot where they came from.”
– Carl Sanburg
The Archives Committee is charged with collecting, preserving and presenting materials of historical interest to Alcoholics Anonymous. We invite you to join us as we continue our efforts to discover and celebrate the history of AA in Eastern Massachusetts.
- Sorting, filing, and preserving documents already collected and held in storage
- Gathering and cataloging additions as they arrive.
- Reaching out to Districts, and other groups in Area 30, with news and views of our service work and encouraging them to preserve their respective Archives
- Recording Group – and Individual – histories, before it’s too late; and
sharing our Archives with you – so that we can “trudge the road” together.
