Chiropractic Journal of Australia Volume 42 Number 2 June 2012 75 manipulation. This resource served the profession during the 1975 Conference on Spinal Manipulation organised by the National Institute of Neurological & Communicative Disorders & Stroke. This collection eventually became the Chiropractic Research Abstracts Collection (CRAC).1 Herb Vear left CMCC in 1977 and became dean of the Western States Chiropractic College (WSCC) in Portland, Oregon. Two years later he became President of WSCC and appealed to the Council on Chiropractic Education to have the school’s provisional status upgraded to full accreditation, which he accomplished in 1981.1 During his presidency at WSCC the Chiropractic Library Consortium (CLibCon) and its Index to Chiropractic Literature (ICL) was formed in 1980. ICVL is one of the most important indexes for chiropractic periodical literature.1 Herb was also active in the Association for the History of Chiropractic (AHC). His membership started in 1982 and he served on their board of directors and two years as its president. In 1993 he collaborated in the formation of the Canadian Chiropractic History Association. He was named Director Emeritus of AHC in 1995 and was awarded AHC’s highest award, the Lee-Homewood Heritage Award in 1997.1 He was one of the individuals responsible for the 1984 policy revision of the American Public Health Association (APHA) towards chiropractic. The APHA, the world’s largest IN MEMORIAM and oldest organisation devoted to health promotion and disease prevention had long followed allopathic medicine’s position that chiropractic was unscientifc and without merit. In collaboration with Rand Baird, MPH, DC, the APHA’s stance toward chiropractic was softened and chiropractors were admitted as professional members. Herb was elected to the APHA’s Governing Council for 1985-86 and again 1989-1892.1 Herb had been honoured with many awards and life memberships in recognition of his devotion to the chiropractic profession its education and its history. He was very prominent in the chiropractic profession and is truly part of our history.4 He will be very much missed by all who knew him and his passing is a great loss to our profession. Rolf E.
