The conference is one of several services provided by the AHC, which is a non-profit, membership society open to all interested persons. The AHC also publishes Chiropractic History, in which chiropractors and interested observers contribute their expertise to telling and interpreting the rich lore of the profession. The journal, which is indexed by the National Library of Medicine in its Bibliography of the History of Medicine, is published twice per year. Chiropractic History is distributed to all members of the AHC as a membership benefit. AHC membership can be obtained by sending your name, address and check for $50 ($20/year for students) to the AHC's executive director:

In recent years the AHC has also become a publisher. Its first book, B.J. of Davenport: the Early Years of Chiropractic, was released in 1997 (order from FCER: 800-622-6309). Just a few months ago its second volume, A History of Chiropractic Education in North America: Report to the Council on Chiropractic Education, was released.
Founded in 1980 at Spears Chiropractic Hospital in Denver, the AHC held its first annual Conference on Chiropractic History at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. in 1981, and has held similar conferences each year since at various chiropractic colleges. This year's meeting at UBCC will be our first session at the nation's first university-based school of chiropractic. Situated on the Long Island sound about 50 miles northeast of New York City on the former estate of P.T. Barnum, the university will provide an amiable springtime environment for this event. Details concerning regristration for the upcoming conference can be obtained by contacting the college:

We hope that all chiropractors of the northeast will take advantage of this special opportunity to visit the university and enjoy a weekend of reveries.
