This Paper honours the centenary of Sir Alister Hardy’s birth, and celebrates his achievements. My part in this is to speak about the early days of what was then the Religious Experience Research Unit. For those involved in this pioneering project, those were indeed very stimulating times, and I could attempt to convey some flavour of them with a great variety of anecdotes. We may later have had our disagreements, but it is above all with great affection and gratitude that I look back on my association with Alister – as must, I feel sure, all those who worked with him. Whatever other feelings one may have had when opening that extraordinary mass of letters which came in from those early appeals, it was tremendously exciting. You simply never knew what the next post might bring.
