  Title "B.J.'s beach house:" the B.J. Palmer historic home in Sarasota, Florida
Journal Chiropr Hist. 2013 Winter;32(2):9-19
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Upon the death of his estranged wife, Bartlett Joshua Palmer, the President of the Palmer School of Chiropractic and captain of a growing broadcasting empire, found himself without a legal residence or home to truly call his own. This situation occurred as a result of the wishes Mabel Heath Palmer expressed in her will, leaving all her assets to her husband for the length of his natural life with the stipulation that upon his death, all of her worldly possessions would pass to their son, David.

In addition to his interests in chiropractic and radio and television broadcasting, B.J. Palmer also had a passion for circus life. All these factors led to his purchase of a home in Sarasota, Florida, where the Ringling Brothers Circus held their winter home. This article chronicles the circumstances of B.J. Palmer's Florida migration and the disposition of his winter home after his death in 1961, and the transformation of his residence into a memorial and museum that is managed and maintained by a not-for-profit charitable foundation.
