Dr. Bob, c. 1945 . Dr Bob was a member of the Oxford Group in Akron but did not find sobriety until he met Bill Wilson in May, 1935.
Bill's desperate telephone search had led him to Mrs Henrietta Seiberling, who knew Dr Bob from the Oxford Group meetings and was aware of his alcoholism.
Henrietta arranged a meeting between Bob and Bill in the gatehouse of the Seiberling estate on the evening of Mothers' Day.
Bob agreed to meet for fifteen minutes, but the new friends talked for six hours.
