The Jail Issue

“After I went to jail, several parties phoned to my home and others called, offering to lend me money with which to pay my fine, thinking that I did not have it. I am not in this cell for lack of principal but for an abundance of principle.”

Tomorrow marks the anniversary of D.D. Palmer being released from prison in 1906 after paying a fine of $389.50.
D.D. was charged with practicing medicine without a license and
served 23 days in the Scott County Jail. This special jail issue of The Chiropractor summarizes his experience
and listing of all the various newspaper commentaries.

This is a great resource for anyone wishing to study D.D. Palmer’s life, the history of Chiropractic and the struggles of chiropractors early on in the profession.
