Chiropractic Journal of Australia : CJA December 2012
Chiropractic Journal of Australia Volume 42 Number 4 December 2012 157 THE YEAR THAT WAS 1912 PETERS pay a fne of $200 and costs and serve 60 days in jail, the jail sentence to be suspended provided he stop practising. The whole sentence was suspended 30 days to allow him to appeal the case to a higher court, which upheld the lower court. A petition signed by2,446 names of Akron and Summit County was sent to Gov. Judson Harmon on 9 November 1912, pleading for the pardon of Brown.76 On 15 November 1912 the Akron Times published that the Deputy Sheriff had been treated by Brown in jail.77 On 20 November the Akron Times printed that Judge Wanamaker was not going to risk any more of his local popularity by trying chiropractic cases as long as he would have the agreeable Judge Doyle to relieve him when judgment was called for.78 Brown was released from jail 24 December, giving him a Christmas present.79 After Brown left jail, he was re-indicted. He put up bond and returned to his practice, ready to go back to jail again if need be.80 While there were many more cases, these were the ones whose outcomes could easily be found. EPILOGUE The year 1912 saw one of the worst maritime disasters in history, the growth of military aviation sections in many countries, the rise of Stalin, and the V. Olympiad in Stockholm. At the Palmer School the new residence was bought by Mabel Palmer, A.B. Hender became the new Dean, new adjusting tables became available. The Palmer Spinography Department became the largest of its kind in the world. It also contained a printing unit to produce photographic copies of the x-ray plates for students to study. Students were now obliged to study spinography, including darkroom work, how to operate the Scheidel- Western x-ray unit and fnally reading of the spinographs. Several new chiropractic schools were established. In 1911 the prosecution of chiropractors was a prelude to 1912 which seemed to have seen an increase in prosecutions. Prosecutions are still taking place in countries without chiropractic legislation, while in Australia there are still challenges in 2012 against the education of chiropractors in universities by “Friends of Science.” ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The assistance of the staff of Palmer College Special Collections and the staff of the Richardson-Sloane Special Collection of the Davenport Public Library are gratefully acknowledged.
