History of the Beecher Foundation

The late Willard and Marguerite Beecher were trained for their work in the field of human relationships by the late Dr. Alfred Adler, founder of Individual Psychology. They taught, lectured, and served as clinical psychologists and consultants for more than 30 years. The Beechers co-directed their own counseling service in New York City, specializing in parent-child guidance, adult counseling, group discussions, and personnel consultation work for several business firms. They also lectured to a variety of psychological, religious, social, and educational organizations.

The Willard and Marguerite Beecher Foundation is a corporation organized under the laws of Texas and operated exclusively for educational, and scientific purposes by furthering clinical study, laboratory research, publication, and teaching the knowledge in the principles of the late Willard and Marguerite Beecher as exemplified in their books and writings.

All of the Directors of the Foundation have one common bond. Each was singly blessed by the teachings and writings of the Beechers. All are concerned that society continue to have available the important insights into human behavior and mature action which the late Beechers provided during their lifetime. We agreed to keep their books in print for future generations.

The Foundation was formed with the knowledge and grateful approval of the Beechers. Prior to his death, Willard gave the Texas group his files of unpublished material and permission to use them in any manner that was deemed valuable to others. Some of the unpublished material has been included in the Sin of Obedience which was published after their deaths.

The Beechers were appreciative that we would take the responsibility of keeping their books in print. That intense appreciation is a two-way street. The Directors of the Foundation feel it is a privilege to be able to do something to repay the Beechers for their contribution to our individual and several lives.
