Original program from a dinner given in honor Alcoholics Anonymous co-founder Bill Wilson (aka "Bill W"), signed by Bill and his wife Lois


New York


October 7, 1967


4-page folded card. 21.2x14 cm (8½x5½").

Rare program for a dinner commemorating Bill W's 33rd anniversary of continuous sobriety, held at the New York Hilton Hotel and hosted by the New York [AA] Intergroup Association. On the last page, under the printed heading "Autographs", are the signatures of a number of attendees, including those of Lois and Bill. A number of the signatures are faint, but those of Lois and Bill are clear and strong, in blue ink. Such AA ephemeral items signed by the co-founder Bill Wilson, as well as his wife Lois, who founded Al-Anon, are very uncommon.

Lot Amendments

Some darkening and wear, a vertical crease, else very good.
