Abstract:

Sister Ignatia is the story of an exceptional woman, "the little sister" of Alcoholics Anonymous. Working with stock broker Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith, the founders of the A.A. movement, Sr. Ignatia arranged for the hospitalization of alcoholics at a time when alcoholism was seen as a weakness of character, rather than a disease. In St. Thomas Hospital in Akron, she began her crusade to aid those suffering from alcoholism and to help them become functioning and productive citizens once again. She was recognized by President John F. Kennedy for her pioneering contributions and was given the Theta Phi Alpha St. Catherine of Siena Award for outstanding Catholic women of national distinction. This is Sr. Ignatia's biography--the story of a nun who was the spiritual cofounder of Alcoholics Anonymous. Her example gave Bill Wilson and Dr. Bob Smith a living illustration of love and service that today are the hallmarks of A.A.
