Lightbulb AA Cofounder Bill W. on Dr. Bob "Prince of all Twelfth-steppers"

AA Cofounder Dr. Bob, “Prince of all Twelfth-Steppers,” and the 5000 drunks he treated

Dick B.

On page 34 of The Co-Founders of Alcoholics Anonymous: Biographical Sketches Their Last Major Talks, AA Cofounder Bill Wilson said these things about the other cofounder Dr. Bob

“It had been decided that Bob would attend mostly to the questions of hospitalization and the development of our Twelfth-Step work. Between 1940 and 1950 in the company of that marvelous nun Sister Ignatia, he had treated 5,000 drunks at St. Thomas Hospital in Akron. His spiritual example was a powerful influence, and he never charged a cent for his medical care. So Dr. Bob became the prince of all twelfth-steppers. Perhaps nobody will ever do such a job again.”
