D.D. Palmer: Authored by D.D.

D.D. Palmer

The D.D. Palmer broadsides refer to a small collection of oversized journals that D.D. produced from the 1880s-1900s. The only known copies in existence run from 1896 until 1902. In these broadsides, D.D. Palmer promotes his services and promises to inform the reader “How to get well and keep well without using poisonous drugs.” The first issue has the title "Magnetic Cure" and changed name to "The Chiropractic" by March 1897.
