Dossa Dixon Evins, one of the lesser known figures in chiropractic history, played a prominent role in the 1920s, yet we know little about him. He was a vaudeville entertainer with his wife Billie, an inventor, electrical engineer, and a radio operator for the Secret Service during World War I. He is also the person who best weathered the hurricane which his most famous invention stirred in the chiropractic profession. What sort of man was he? The author seeks to answer that question in this paper as well as delving into the Neurocalometer Incident.
