He was not.
My source is the man himself.
I have been sober for 32 years, I sobered up in Castleberry at the Rebos Club,
Clarence was my grandsponsor. He also 12th stepped me. I have been to his house
several times and to meetings with him.
The Wild Goose Chase............................................................. and Glenn C.
Recently, half a dozen history "lovers" have perpetrated a no rules barrered A.A. wild goose chase.
With no documented evidence whatever, they keep tossing around the "question" whether Clarence
H. Snyder got paid for his story in the Big Book.
Of course, he was not.
And what new kind of myth-making or mischief-making has prompted this waste of time and effort and love and service which should be pursued for the benefit of AAs for others to answer.
But the foregoing testimony of James E. Williams is just one of the many eye-witness statements that puts the truth way way ahead of the deceptive "questions" now promulgated by a handful of speculators.
There is other testimony by Steve Foreman, one of four Clarence Snyder sponsees who not only knew Clarence's wife Grace quite well, but also were Clarence's sponsees. Steve, these other sponsees, and their wive have--to a person--put to rest the canard--in which the "lovers" have added a scurrilous letter of half a century ago where the AAWS chastized Clarence for objecting to the royalties being paid to Bill Wilson for his A.A. writings.
For accurate and further information, contact Steve Wilson, Winter Park, Florida who has all the details and would be happy to put this nonsense to rest in your minds.
