Celebrate Founder’s Day at Palmer 2013

The first chiropractic adjustment by D.D. Palmer is designated as September 18, 1895, and is commemorated by an historical marker in downtown Davenport near the site of the former Ryan Building wherein Dr. Palmer treated Harvey Lillard, the first chiropractic patient. In the video above, Chancellor Dennis Marchiori invites everyone to share their plans for Founder’s Day, which will be celebrated on Palmer’s Davenport campus on Tuesday, September 17th. There will be a wreath-laying ceremony and brief presentations by Provost Dan Weinert and Ms. Vickie Palmer, great-granddaughter of D.D. Palmer and member of the Palmer Board of Trustees. Many resources about the history of chiropractic can be found in Special Collections and Archives in the David D. Palmer Health Sciences Library.
