The Universal College of Chiropractic (UCC) was established in 1910 in the city of Davenport, Ia. The school was formed as the result of a protest led by students and faculty of the Palmer School of Chiropractic. The protest took the form of a walkout that ensued after new scientific ideas were introducted by Palmer's head, Dr. B.J. Palmer, to the practice of chiropractic. This project is intended to identify the students and faculty who were involved in the walkout and the subsequent formation of the UCC, and additionally answer the question of what became of them after leaving Palmer.
