In August, Mrs. Joyce Walters announced the creation of a $2 million endowment to Palmer College of Chiropractic to support the historical objectives of the college.The permanent endowment was established by Mrs. Walters as a memorial to her late husband Dr. S. George Walters, a 1918 Palmer graduate. Dr. Walters operated a successful practice in St. Louis for many years and was a close personal friend of David D. Palmer, the school's president from 1961 to 1978.
"We are delighted with this support and hope it is the start of many such gifts to help us preserve our history," enthused Alana Callender, director of the Palmer Foundation for Chiropractic History.
Darrell Slabaugh, Palmer's director of development, said the endowment could help in such endeavors as preserving artifacts and exhibits, research and documentation, public education, acquisition of collections, and the repair and maintenance of the B.J. Palmer mansion and chiropractic museum.
