Dr. Bob Archives

The personal archives of Dr. Bob and Anne Smith have been in storage since Dr. Bob died in 1950.  In the subsequent fifty years, no one has had access this priceless piece of A.A. history.

In November 1999, Wally P. helped catalog this material as it was transferred from the attic of Dr. Bob's daughter, Sue Smith Windows, in Akron, Ohio to a permanent repository at the Brown University Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies in Providence, Rhode Island.  The Dr. Bob and Anne Smith Archives joined several other collections already housed at Brown including the Kirk Collection (15,000 items pertaining to the temperance movement and early A.A.), the Clarence Snyder Collection (books, pamphlets, letters and ephemera retained by "The Home Brewmeister" from 1938 to1983), and the Ernie Kurtz Collection (research material used to write Not God).

Wally P received no financial compensation for performing this service to A.A. and "the millions yet to come."  However, he did ask for and did receive permission to copy and distribute, at no charge, materials from the Collection.  So, for the first time, this important, missing piece of A.A. history is available for viewing.  Brown University will post some of the Dr. Bob and Anne Smith Archives on its website in the fall of 2000.  Until then, this site will post as much of the collection as possible, given the limited resources of the volunteer staff at the not-for-profit Faith With Works Publishing Company. 

We will start by posting items as soon as they are typed. Later we will try to organize the material into categories.
