  Title Perspectives on chiropractic education in medical literature, 1910-1933.
Journal Chiropr Hist. 1983 ;3(1):24-30
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Research at the National Medical Library has identified a considerable body of medical writing on chiropractic in the early decades of this century.   Of the many facets of the profession drawing attention during the period, chiropractic education was among the more colorful.

In his famous 1910 report on medical education, Abraham Flexner referred to chiropractors as “the chiropractics” and dismissed them as being unworthy of consideration, even as a medical sect.  Yet by 1915, chiropractic had grown sufficiently to attract the attention of the medical establishment.   The result was a series of passionate medical editorials and articles on the subject, spanning most of the next two decades.  Over thirty of these articles dealt with chiropractic education in whole or part.  The subject would never again receive such published attention.

pg 24 Chiropractic zingers, circa 1908, Palmer School of Chiropractic pictures of various advertising trends in chiropractic education.

Paper delivered by William S. Rehm, D.C. before the third Conference on Chiropractic History, National College of Chiropractic, Lombard, Ill, June 4, 1983.
