In memory of Mel Barger, a dear friend and a great AA member!


Mel Barger, renowned AA historian and long time member, passed “beyond our sight hearing,” on February 19th, 2017. He is a friend who will be sorely missed. As a contributor to the Grapevine, Mel had many conversations with Bill Wilson, which he shared with grace and humor.  Extraordinarily generous with his time and talents, Mel encouraged fellow members of AA for over 66 years.  He was the principal author of the official biography of Bill Wilson — Pass It On: The story of Bill Wilson and how the A.A. message reached the world — published by the New York AA office in 1984.

He also wrote New Wine: The Spiritual Roots of the 12 Step Miracle and My Search for Bill Wilson among other books.
