Abstract/Notes All but forgotten in the early and middle years of chiropractic is the saga of John C. Hubbard, a virtuoso whose talents spanned many fields of human endeavour. Following a career in theatre, he studied at the Carver Chiropractic College and fought for his new profession in the legislative halls of several states in the second decade of the 20th century. He next studied medicine, served his country in uniform in the Panama Canal Zone as a quarantine officer and medical director of a leper colony, and returned to Oklahoma City to establish his private practice of general medicine and surgery. Ostracised by the local allopathic establishment, Hubbard opened his own hospital where he served his patients for three decades while editing the Eclectic Medical Journal. Recalled to duty during World War II, in 1946 he returned to civilian life and practised with his three physician sons for the remainder of his life. Dr Hubbard maintained his contact with the chiropractic profession through membership in the National Chiropractic Association and through guest lectures at his chiropractic alma mater. In many respects his story epitomises the pioneer spirit and determination of early chiropractors.
