Dr. Gold explained his generous donation: "Everything I have, everything I hope to have, everything I am or ever hope to be, I owe to chiropractic."
Long associated with Sherman College, Dr. Gold served as Sherman's first academic dean; he also held the positions of vice president and dean of philosophy with the college.
Dr. Gold also spearheaded the founding of the ADIO Chiropractic College, which became the Pennsylvania College of Straight Chiropractic in 1978.
"I can't adequately express what Reggie means to Sherman," said Sherman President Thom Gelardi. "Reggie is one of the few people who lives the philosophy he espouses. This gift is just another example of his constant giving to Sherman and the chiropractic profession."
How does it feel to give $125,000? "The giving is actually painless," Dr. Gold asserted. "It is only making up your mind to do it that causes fear. Overcome that, and the rest is easy," he explained.
