December 19, 1944 Green Bay Press Gazette Article on A.A. in Green Bay

May 22, 1960 Green Bay Press Gazette – Featuring Frank Neu who was a non alcoholic, who reached out in April 1941 for help for one of his alcoholic employee. Teaming with Dr. W.W. Kelley they started on the slow and tedious task of  the creation of the first A.A. Group in Green Bay.

Dr. W.W. Kelley along with serving as president, physician and a longtime member of the Packers’ executive committee and board of directors, Kelly also was one of the biggest supporters of A.A. in Green Bay since the beginning.  He worked tirelessly with Frank Neu to create the first A.A. Group here in Green Bay, and personally sponsored many alcoholics financially to allow them to seek medical help at the local AA ward in St. Mary’s Hospital.
