Abstract/Notes

The author has spent some two years researching the public library and museum archives of Illinois and Iowa to trace the career of Oakley Smith (1880-1967), an early graduate of D.D. Palmer who later attended medical school and with S.M. Langworthy  and M.L. Paxson founded the American School of Chiropractic in Cedar Rapids in 1904. Later Smith would discover and formulate his own separate and distinct health practice, based upon Bohemian movements and thrusts, coining it as naprapathy.  The survival of naprapaths, at least in Illinois, are discussed along with Smith’s impact on early manipulative healing trends.
