  Title Beatrice B. Hagen: the lady in charge
Journal Chiropr Hist. 2008 Summer;28(1):73-82
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes She was an independent and successful professional woman in an era that only gradually acknowledged the capabilities of females. Beatrice Boyson Hagen’s career spanned more than fifty years, during which time she served her alma mater as teacher, clinic director, chair of Logan College’s board of trustees, and for twelve years as chief executive officer of the institution. With her husband and practice partner, she established a successful clinic in the Empire State, raised a family of four children, participated in the professional affairs of chiropractors in New York State, and endured the persecution of political medicine. As president of Logan College, she brought calm to the institution’s troubled waters, oversaw the construction of two major building on the Chesterfield campus, guided the institution to regional accreditation, and fostered renewed interest in the clinical methods she had learned from her mentor, Hugh B. Logan, D.C. Dr. Bea Hagen was the first woman to serve as president of a federally recognized chiropractic college. As well, she guided the Council on Chiropractic Education as president during several difficult years in the mid-1980s. Along the way, she garnered respect and affection from friends, students, and opponents alike. Hers is a life worth recounting and a contribution to chiropractic that will be long remembered.
