Excerpt: I recently completed a 30-year project of writing the biography of the former president of the chiropractic college I attended. Joseph Janse: The Apostle of Chiropractic Education is the life history of a man who served as president of the National College of Chiropractic from 1945 to 1983––38 years of service.
Any aficionado of chiropractic history will recognize the significance of individuals who led the profession in years past. College presidents were often better known than the schools they led. Personalities dominated; often individual faculty members were subservient to their leaders or they would find themselves unemployed.
Names like Palmer, Napolitano, Janse, Wolf, Logan, Haynes, Cleveland, and Budden are powerhouse personalities remembered more for themselves than the colleges each of them led for so many years. By way of contrast, who knows the name of the current president of Yale or Harvard or Stanford or even Whittier College?
