The First Century of the Science, Art & Philosophy of CHIROPRACTIC

By Joseph Keating Jr., PhD

Here are four areas where you can make a difference in preserving the profession's past:

1.

a. Determine from the administration of your alma mater how a donation will support and/or encourage historical research at the college.

b. Determine who at your college may be doing historical research (see AMER. J. CHIRO. MED. 1990 (March), Chiropractic History 1989 (December) & 1990 (July).

c. If the results of a & b (above) are positive, make a donation to your alma mater or another chiropractic college.

2.

a. Join the ASSOCIATION FOR THE HISTORY OF CHIROPRACTIC (AHC), and receive a subscription to Chiropractic History, the AHC's journal.

b. Attend the annual AHC historical conference (this year at Parker College of Chiropractic, June 2, 1990, Dallas).

3.

a. Make a donation to the CHIROPRACTIC HISTORICAL FUND of the NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF CHIROPRACTIC RESEARCH (NICR).

4.

a. Contribute old books, journals, legal and clinic records, advertisements, correspondence and equipment to a chiropractic college archive (e.g., PALMER COLLEGE/Davenport, LOGAN COLLEGE in St. Louis.)
