‘Flying Blind’: Literature & History of Early A.A.

Dr. Bob’s home and much of the history shared on our tours reflect the seminal period in which Alcoholics Anonymous was founded and developed into the Program and the Fellowship of today. This corresponds roughly to the fifteen years commencing with Bill and Bob’s first meeting in 1935 and concluding with the passing of Dr. Bob in 1950.

The ‘flying blind’ period refers to the early growth of the Fellowship prior to the publication of the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous in April of 1939. During this time, members of the ‘alcoholic squad’ in Akron and the ‘drunk squad’ in New York used a variety of pre-conference literature in their quest for a conscious contact with a Higher Power.

Below is a general description of some of the authors, stories, and books referenced in our posts. Our intention is to inspire, to educate, and to share the experience of AA’s earliest members. To quote Henry Ford by way of the Big Book: Experience is the thing of supreme value in life.

June 2020.
