  Title Almeda Haldeman, Canada's first chiropractor: Pioneering the prairie provinces, 1907-1917
Journal Chiropr Hist. 1983 ;3(1):64-67
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

The first known woman chiropractor graduated under D.D. Palmer in 1899, and three of his first 15 graduates through 1902 were women, one of whom became a well-known pioneer educator in the fledgling profession.  In 1906, one of the earliest of the offshoot schools of The Founder was located in Minneapolis, Minnesota, as the Chiropractic School and Cure.

Among the first known graduates of this institution was Almeda Haldeman, believed to have been the first practicing chiropractor in Palmer’s native Canada.  She pioneered the profession in Saskatchewan in 1907 and became the matriarch of a three-generation family which influenced the development of chiropractic in two other countries.
