Apocryphal stories exist that the Midwayers had been planning for a revelation on the order of The Urantia Book since the middle ages -- the time of the development of the printing press and the Protestant Reformation -- and had petitioned the Melchizedeks as early as the fifteenth century for help. Dr. Sadler is reported to have told a number of people that the Midwayers tried a number of different methods with several different groups before developing a working liason with the Sadler/Forum group early in the twentieth century. This is apocryphal only -- there are informed sources who view this story as nonsense. 25
