The Faces of Lincoln

By Joseph Keating Jr., PhD

From its inception in 1926 until its final commencement exercises in 1971 and amalgamation with the National College,1 the Lincoln Chiropractic College was an exceptional institution. Conceived as an alternative to the Palmer School,2 from which its founders had departed from 1924 to 1926 in the wake of the neuro-calometer's introduction,3,4 the Lincoln earned a reputation as a "straight" chiropractic institution with a greater-than-average commitment to academics.

The school is gone now, but its memory is institutionalized in the Lincoln College Education and Research Fund, by supporters of the Florida State University College of Chiropractic, and by the National-Lincoln postgraduate division of the National University of Health Sciences. The influence of the Lincoln can also be recognized in the works of its many graduates, including the following:

Of course, the credits of the Lincoln extend beyond its alumni to include the various faculty; administrators; members of the board of trustees; and the alumni of Lincoln and other chiropractic colleges who shepherded the institution throughout its 45 years. Of special note are the alumni of the Universal Chiropractic College (UCC), founded in Davenport, Iowa in 1910, and relocated to Pittsburgh, circa 1918. The UCC closed its doors in 1944, a victim of decline in student enrollment attributable to World War II; its alumni were merged with those of the Lincoln, and UCC graduates made Lincoln their home.

After more than 30 years since its closure, memories of the Lincoln are fading. Lest they be forgotten, images of a few of the people who made the Lincoln a significant institution are presented below. Who can you identify? (Answer key following):
