David Daniel Palmer: "The Educator" as the legacy of the third generation.
Palmer College of Chiropractic, Davenport, IA 52803, USA.
David Daniel Palmer was born into the crucible of chiropractic formulation. He would be raised in the environment of BJ Palmer's leadership and school domination and the acquisition of the broadcasting empire that shaped the profession and its ultimate acceptance. With the investiture of David D. Palmer as the third president of the Palmer School, a new era of academic and professional growth took place at the Palmer institutions. During his presidency, transition of the school from proprietary to a non-profit status was achieved, as was full accreditation. The Palmer Junior College and a new relationship with the Davenport community was initiated. Reorganization of the Palmer faculty, new admissions procedures, a strong alumni association and improved facilities were accomplished under the Palmer known as "The Educator."
