P. P. Quimby has been called the founder of 'New Thought.' There was controversy as to whether he also originated Christian Science. This set of documents, published in 1921 in response to a campaign to question his early role in Christian Science, shows that Quimby indeed anticipated many of the key ideas of both movements. Dresser, the editor was an early follower of Quimby. He shows that not only did Quimby have contact with Eddy, the founder of Christian Science, he probably also coined the term 'Christian Science.'

Phineas Parkhurst Quimby (February 16, 1802 – January 16, 1866), was an American spiritual teacher, philosopher, magnetizer, mesmerist, healer, and inventor, who resided in Belfast, Maine, and had an office in Portland, Maine. His work is widely recognized as leading to the New Thought movement. When Charles Poyen, a French mesmerist, came to Belfast, Maine, on a lecture circuit about mesmerism around 1836, Quimby attended one of his lectures, and immediately began plying the mesmerist with questions about the nature of animal magnetism and its powers. Poyen admitted that with proper training, anyone could become adept at administering hypnotism. Quimby left his job as watchmaker and followed Poyen's tour of New England for the subsequent two years (1838–1840), until he became proficient at applying mesmeric hypnotism himself. Around this time Quimby encountered Lucius Burkmar, an uneducated youth who was particularly susceptible to hypnosis. Quimby and Lucius began a tour of their own, practicing mesmeric demonstrations in front of large crowds.
