The first group of recovered alcoholics which would become A.A. met at T. Henry and Clarace Williams' home until 1939, moving to Dr. Bob's house for a few months and then to King School.  Although not the first to use the name "Alcoholics Anonymous," it is this group which Bill W. referred to as "A.A. group #1."
