Far from being a “helpmate” to B.J. Palmer, Mabel Heath Palmer was a prominent member of “The First Family of Chiropractic,” having become an officer of the first school and infirmary shortly after her 1904 graduation. An anatomist, author, lecturer and pioneer women’s leader, she also represented the moderation that would influence much of B. J. Palmer’s turbulent career. This paper deals with the first 40 years in the life of this remarkable woman.
