Hi History lovers,
Can anyone tell us how Ebby Thacher learned that
Bill Wilson was in trouble with his drinking?
++++Message 3400. . . . . . . . . . . . Re: Was Bill a Swedenborgian?
This thread prompts me to ask a question that has been on my mind for
some time, which is about Bill's mother, Emily Wilson, and her studies
in osteopathic medicine. I have not been able to learn much about the
specific course of her study in Boston, or about how she might have
communicated her ideas to Bill later in life. But there are overlaps
between osteopathy and not only Swedenborgianism but also (and perhaps
more directly) the mind-cure and New Thought religions that flourished
in Boston in the late 19th century. Dick B. has written some about
early AA's connections to New Thought, but I wonder if there is much
informaton available about Emily Wilson's training in osteopathy, her
exposure to New Thought and other Swedenborgian-derived philosophies in
Boston, and any communications she might've had with Bill on these
topics? Trysh Travis

Please note that the correct address is Katonah, not Bedford Hills. The AA
indicates that Bill and Lois lived in Bedford Hills. If you drive around
Bedford Hills, you'll see some nice houses and trees, but you won't find
Stepping Stones. Katonah is the next town.
Here from the Stepping Stones web site is a link for "mapquest"
directions to Bill and Lois' house...

Grace Oursler. Oursler, who wrote "The Greatest Story Ever Told"
became very close friends and likely shared the same respect for
Christianity in general. Bill's instructions by Sheen lasted for about a
year after which Bill lost interest.
My sense (more a guess) is that Bill was strongly motivated by public
relations considerations to not directly associate with a specific
denomination. There are aspects of the AA program that really encompass the
common and altruistic threads of all religious denominations - except AA
folks insist on using the term "spiritual" instead of
"religious" as if
"religious" was a pejorative.
In regards to Swedenborgianism my guess is that Lois W would be a more
fruitful candidate for investigation than Bill given her grandfather's

I know of several instances in New England where one's mailing address is a
different town than where one lives. My family's summer camp is in the
Town of Derby but the mailing address is Newport.
I am told by someone who lived there that Bedford Hills, Bedford Village,
and Katonah are all in the Town of Bedford.
What town are Stepping Stones taxes paid to?
