“Dr. Vinton F. Logan, 1905-1961” (p. 2): Dr. Vinton F. Logan died on Sunday morning, July 9, 1961. Dr. Logan was born in Peoria, Illinois on July 1, 1905, son of Hugh B. and Wilhelmina Logan, both of whom enrolled in Chiropractic college while Dr. Vinton was a boy. Following their graduation the family moved to Atchison, Kansas where Dr. Hugh B. Logan began practice. Dr. Vinton attended St. Benedict’s College in Atchison and the Universal Chiropractic College in Pittsburgh. He received his Chiropractic degree on July 1, 1926. He practiced with his father in Los Angeles, California for three years and then took over the practice himself. He joined with his father in the promotion of full-spine work in 1934 and became the Dean of Logan Basic College of Chiropractic in St. Louis when it opened in 1935. In addition to administrative work at the college, Dr. Vinton traveled the country and taught graduate work to doctors in the field from 1934 to 1944. He became President of Logan College following the passing of his father in 1944. Dr. Logan was a member of the Legislative Committee of the Missouri State Chiropractors’ Assn, Secretary-Treasurer of the International Basic Technique Research Institute, member of the
C.A. Board of Control and member of the President’s Cabinet. Dr. Logan’s death is certainly a great loss to our profession. He was a man of courage and vision, an inspiring speaker and a dynamic personality who lived and loved Chiropractic.
