Many of the original signers of the Agile Manifesto in 2001 were active Smalltalkers.  This report quantifies the amount of the influence of Smalltalk on the creation of the Manifesto. Specifically it explores the influence of the language, the development environment, the libraries, and culture of Smalltalk at that time.
