As Alcoholics Anonymous enters the 21st century, there is a renewed interest in our early roots.  A sincere effort has been made to insure both the accuracy and authenticity of all posted pictures.  If you would like to submit a picture to us for publication, or have any input about our current content, we'd love to hear for you! 

We are proud to offer photographs of early Alcoholics Anonymous history- photographs of interest to members of AA and others!

Our hope is that you enjoy this visual walk through AA history!

Rev. Sam Shoemaker


Rev. Samuel M. Shoemaker was the pastor at Calvary Episcopal Church in New York where he headed the Oxford Group there. He was also a great friend of early AA.
