– Chuck C. – Spiritual Way of Life
While the visual quality of this video is not good — the message is priceless and timeless.
There are very few people in the Fellowships today — that had the opportunity of seeing and listening to Chuck C. in person.
The majority, have only heard him via speaker tapes and CD’s. The others have read the book New Pair of Glasses, which was the printed transcripts of a series of talks given by Chuck C., at an A.A. retreat, called “The Pala Mesa Men’s Retreat.”
Chuck C. was known to many in the Fellowship as one of the finest living examples that demonstrated the AA Way of Life through the application of living the Principles of the AA Philosophy.
This recording is the only known visual record in video or film of Chuck C. Here he is seen and heard giving a talk at a Non-AA event, to a class of students in a Southern California University.
He was born in 1902, and got sober in A.A. in January 1946. He wrote a book called “A New Pair Of Glasses” which is a transcript of a retreat he gave for alcoholics in 1975. The Preface is written by Clancy I. of California.
His son [Richard] became a famous actor.
Chuck died in 1984.
