From the preface: "In translating the distributional philosophy into a definite bidding system, I have had the invaluable assistance of the late Louis H. Watson, of Theodore L. Crockett and of Edward Hymes, Jr. , among many others." From the BRIDGEGUYS website: "An original method for showing distribution with the first bid, devised by Mr. Harold Bissell of New York and published in 1936. It attracted favorable attention from Mr. B. Jay Becker, Mr. Louis Watson and Mr. Edward Hymes, and anticipated some modern European Systems, such as Roman and Relay. The valuation of the distribution was taking into account the strength of the combined honors as well as the length of the suit. "
