From the Editor-in-Chief: It is accepted in the Rolfing® Structural Integration (SI) community that the Little Boy Logo is based on the body structure of a little boy then known as Tim Barrett and later as Tim Law. Tim, who was invited to the Rolf Institute® in 1996 on the occasion of the hundredth-year anniversary of Rolf’s birth, passed away from cancer this past summer. Here we remember Tim’s life, with the story of the work with Ida Rolf and the logo as it comes to us through the childhood memories of Tim and his brother John. (Variants of the story are extant, particularly one told by Dorothy Nolte; see endnote). I am particularly grateful to Jan Marie Alarcon for reaching out to the Rolf Institute® with this generous sharing from John and Tim.
