Disasters, Discoveries, Developments and Distinction: The Year That was 1907

Chiropractic Journal of Australia
Volume 37 Issue 4 (Dec 2007)

Abstract: During 1907, D.D. Palmer went back to commerce briefly before returning to teaching chiropractic, and his former student Thomas Storey faced prosecution for injuries thought to have resulted in a patient's death. B.J. Palmer announced special chiropractic courses for osteopaths and medical practitioners and a one-off bridging course for 'pseudos.' He also established a night school, invested heavily in teaching aids, published Volume 2 of The Science of Chiropractic and made a number of practice aids available to the profession. In a premeditated test case, Palmer graduate Shegataro Morikubo and the Universal Chiropractors' Association (UCA) legal team established chiropractic as separate and distinct from medicine and osteopathy. The year was also characterised by catastrophic earthquakes, floods, mine explosions, rail disasters and shipwrecks, achievements in women's suffrage, an important scientific discovery and establishment of a number of modern icons.
