The First Zen Institute was established in NY by Sokei-an, and much of the content of these slim journals is taken from his earlier works. Alan Watts was one of his students in the 1930s. Sokei-an was interned as an "Enemy Alien" during WWII, dying two years after his release. He married one of his students, Ruth Fuller Everett, just before his death, and she makes many contributions to this series.
