Clarence Snyder - Came to Believe

Dr. Bob’s sponsee, Clarence helped found the Cleveland Group of AA, the first to be named “Alcoholics Anonymous” after its separation from the Oxford Group in Akron. He helped write the Big Book and is author of “Home Brewmeister” (in 75th Anniversary Edition of BB and in “Experience, Strength, and Hope”). He had his last drink 02/11/38, and at the time of this talk had the longest period of sobriety in AA. Given not long after the publication of “Dr. Bob and the Good Oldtimers,” his talk, like that book, presents a distinctly Akron, Midwestern view of AA (1:33:24). See on this site “Big Book Q&A,” Chapter 10: To Employers, p.138.
