A lifetime treasure embodying Dick’s 20 years of research and writing. This one-of-a-kind, early A.A. history reference set provides books to study at your leisure on nearly every major A.A. history subject: From A.A.'s official cofounders—Bill W., and Dr. Bob—to Dr. Bob's wife Anne (whom Bill W. called the “mother of A.A.”), to others Bill W. called “founders” of A.A. (such as Rev. Sam Shoemaker and William James), to Carl Jung and Dr. William D. Silkworth, to the books and Quiet Time devotionals early A.A. pioneers read, to the roles of organizations such as the Young People's Society of Christian Endeavor (of which Dr. Bob was a member in his youth) and the Young Men's Christian Association (of which Bill W. was the president at Burr and Burton Academy, and of which Dr. Bob's father was the St. Johnsbury president much of the time Dr. Bob attended the St. Johnsbury Academy just down the street from the St. Johnsbury YMCA).
