Abstract:
Alcoholics Anonymous of North Carolina began with the first meeting in Shelby. Following that Charlotte, Raleigh, Asheville, Durham, Greensboro, High Point, Fayetteville, and Statesville started chapters of the group with further organizations planned throughout the state. Most of these branches facilitate meetings and organize financial help for those needing hospitalization, the one exception being Charlotte which runs a nursing home for those wishing to \"dry-out.\" No state statistics are given but it was assumed that there were 20,000 members nationally in 1947.

Speaker of the House of Representatives Mr. Tom Pearsall was elected in at the beginning of 1947. He was adamant about instituting a health program not for the state but limited to his personal estate. Pearsall was in charge of M. C. Braswell Farms, an expansive estate which stretched 22,000 acres between Nash and Edgecombe County. The farm was run by 900 individuals, mostly African Americans, and to ward off disease and illness Pearsall insisted on preventive health procedures, like chest X-rays to check for tuberculosis.
