About the Author

Joseph C. Keating, Jr.

Dr. Keating earned his Ph.D. in clinical psychology and clinical research, and practiced as a clinical psychologist for 16 years. Eventually he found a home in the chiropractic colleges, where he worked as a clinical researcher, faculty member, administrator, and historian at Palmer College of Chiropractic-West, Northwestern College of Chiropractic, Western States Chiropractic College, and Los Angeles College of Chiropractic.

Beginning in 1988 he served as a member of the board of directors of the National Institute of Chiropractic Research (NICR), a non-profit corporation whose mission involves fund-raising, grant-making and the conduct of research in chiropractic. He also served on the editorial board of several peer-reviewed, scholarly periodicals, including Clinical Chiropractic, the Chiropractic Journal of Australia, Journal of the Canadian Chiropractic Association and the Journal of Manipulative & Physiological Therapeutics. Dr. Keating was a former president (1994-95) of the Association for the History of Chiropractic and served on its board of directors. He authored several hundred professional papers and several books. Dr. Keating was Homewood Professor of the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College during 1999-2002. The National University of Health Sciences awarded him an honorary degree, Doctor of Letters, in December 2004. Dr. Keating died in 2007.
