The intent of this work is to document important and instructive events in the life of Shegetaro Morikubo leading up to and following the 1907 scope of practice trial in LaCrosse Wisconsin.

Morikubo lead a very interesting and colorful life including participating in the Arts, lecturing on Japanese culture and customs, and studying/practicing various forms of healing including Osteopathy, Chiropractic, Magnetic Healing, and Electropathy.  He had a gift for developing practices in a number of locations that lead to conflicts.  His professional and personal life is documented from his arrival in the U.S. in 1896 to his death in 1933.

Shegetaro Morikubo was a showman, an erudite writer, a philosopher in the classic and chiropractic sense, an explorer of non-drug healing methods, a chiropractor, a skilled orator, an ambassador of and defender of his homeland, a husband, a father, a fisherman, and a courageous early champion of chiropractic.
