  Title William Harvey Lillard: The life and story of the first
Journal Chiropr Hist. 2014 Winter;34(2):42-48
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

William Harvey Lillard's brave willingness to accept the first adjustment forever changed history.  Allowing D.D. Palmer to perform this unknown act, in the area of the spine he believed caused his deafness, would affect millions of lives ever after.

Many know the story of the first adjustment, and this report will do justice to that legend.  The life of the first chiropractic patient will be chronicled from his birth, residency in Davenport, Iowa where he became the first chiropractic patient, his subsequent migration to the state of Washington and the circumstances of his death in September of 1925.  The story of the dedicated chiropractic enthusiasts who located his grave and the subsequent memorial to this significant character in the chiropractic saga is also chronicled.
