Intro to Special Collections and Archives

Our Special Collections & Archives are the largest collection of chiropractic materials in the world housed under one roof. We have books, manuscripts, theses, photographs, paintings, journals, research papers – the list goes on and on!

And here in the archives you can view practically everything we have in the collection, whether or not it is in the catalog! We have old diplomas, Homecoming buttons, old yearbooks, and hundreds & hundreds of photos just to name a few resources.

We are open 8:30-5:00pm, so feel free to stop in anytime during those hours with questions, research requests, or to browse through the images and texts available in the reading room.

  • We can help you find the resources you need for your historical research.
  • Have a family member who attended Palmer? We can find them in our collection of yearbooks, class composites, and graduation programs.
  • Looking to decorate your chiropractic office or need an image for a presentation? We provide high resolution scans for a small fee.

Don’t have time to stop in? Check out our digital collections!

We’ve created a repository for historical content that is available for you to access online. We have a wide variety of content available already:

  • Photographs
  • Green books
  • B.J. Palmer pamphlets
  • D.D.’s broadsides
  • and much more!

Watch this blog for updates as we continue adding to our digital collections.
