  Title The last ten years of D.D. Palmer, "As I see it"
Journal Chiropr Hist. 2017 Winter ;37(2):29-51
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

This article describes the last ten years of D.D. Palmer's life, mostly through the writings of his son, B.J. Palmer, but also through the recollections of other contemporaries who shared B.J.'s views.  This will offer a different perspective than the hagiographic accounts of D.D.'s last years.  This unvarnished look may rankle devotees of D.D.  It is my goal to show the readers B.J.'s version.  "As I see it" refers to B.J.'s point of view.  The article contains several quotes to illustrate that viewpoint.  The last years of most people's lives are typically quiet.  Such was not the case with D.D. Palmer.  His last years were full of turmoil and strife, tragedies, heartaches, loneliness, accomplishments, failures, domestic troubles... all in accordance with his character of uninhibited thoughts, speech, and actions.  These characteristics would not only have repercussions in his own life but would also influence his son B.J. and the future of the chiropractic profession, and not always for the good.  Whatever D.D.'s up and downs, the one thing that will bring his name through history which no other man has ever done was to found Chiropractic.
