Jailed chiropractors: those who blazed the trail.
When the iron doors of the Scott County Jail shut on D.D. Palmer in the spring of 1906 he was destined to be the first of hundreds of chiropractors who would "go to jail for chiropractic" through most of three quarters of the century. This study recalls the significant jailing and the commitment of many who sustained multiple trials, convictions and imprisonment. By, far Ohio was the harshest jurisdiction in the country, jailing better than a third of those imprisoned. An extensive appendix of those D.C.s who served time, by states, is included in this contribution.
