Chiropractic Journal of Australia : CJA June 2013
Chiropractic Journal of Australia Volume 43 Number 2 June 2013 51 Fay Eagles, DC, FICC During the next phase of Mary Ann’s life, roughly 1975 to 1982, she became the Federal Executive Secretary of the Australian Chiropractors’ Association. She lectured in chiropractic history and principles at the International College of Chiropractic/Phillip Institute of Technology, and maintained a private practice in Melbourne. A trip back to the United States coincided with the 1980 annual convention of the American Chiropractic Association, and there she met Dr. Faye Eagles who took her under her wing (pun intended).5 Faye Lou Burns was born on June 27, 1926, in Hildebrand/Hickory, North Carolina, to David Reuben and Alma Yoder Burns.23 Faye's son, Robert, was born in 1947, and a daughter, Landyce, in 1948. After chiropractic care, Faye determined to go to chiropractic school. She arranged for her parents to take care of the children while she was going to school. “When I frst made my decision to become a doctor of chiropractic I did not realize that it was not a conventional career for a woman. And I did not know that there were so few women in the profession, or that its future was not completely stabilized.” 24 She started her education at Lincoln College of Chiropractic. When that school closed, she transferred to Logan Chiropractic College in St. Louis, Mo., and Faye B. Eagles graduated as a Doctor of Chiropractic degree in Logan's second 1953 class.19, 25-27 Dr. Eagles returned to North Carolina and started a practice with her husband in Rocky Mount in 1953. Faye strongly believed in the importance of chiropractic engagement in community and she became an active member of her communities: chiropractic, local, and political. In her community, Dr. Eagles was a Girl Scout leader and camp director. She joined the North Carolina Chiropractic Association and the National Chiropractic Association (NCA). When the American Chiropractic Association was formed by the amalgamation of members of the International Chiropractors Association and the NCA in 1963, Dr. Eagles became a charter member of the new ACA. She was a member of the North Carolina Council on Aging, formed to prepare for the White House Conference. This and her active involvement in the Republican Party were most likely the factors that led to her becoming, along with Gerald Brassard, Sol Goldschmidt, and John Davidson, III, one of four doctors of chiropractic among 288 physicians appointed by President Nixon to serve as delegates to the White House Conference on Aging in 1971.24, 26, 19, 28 In 1971, she had also moved up through all the elective offces of the North Carolina Chiropractic Association and served for a year as its frst woman president.19, 29 A CIRCLE OF FRIENDS CALLENDER
