Stepping Stones Foundation

Nell Wing’s Room

Nell Wing arrived in New York City in 1947 to work a temp job for a year, planning to save money to go to Mexico and study sculpting. Nell took a job at AA headquarters and became Bill’s personal assistant in 1950 until his death in 1971. Nell was the first AA archivist.

Nell was a regular at Stepping Stones, spending every other weekend working with Bill. This bedroom was kept for her. Following Bill’s death, Nell continued to work with Lois and became one of the four founding members of Stepping Stones Foundation.
