Fat Pride Pioneer
Marvin Grosswirth
Ancient Scrolls Author

Lawrence, our new staff member in our research department began his 'probationary' period here with some fantastic history on 'Fat Pride'. In 1972, this man authored "Fat pride: A survival handbook". While we found this book for sale online and have allready ordered a copy, it is still a mystery to us. We are unsure of what we find in this book and if perhaps we have found the 'Grandfather' of this phrase.
We will be doing a follow-up post shortly.
