LM Rogers DC’s obit for Cooley (p. 56): Dr. C. Sterling Cooley Passes On One of the profession’s most prominent pioneers. Dr. C. Sterling Cooley of Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he had practiced since 1914, died at the age of 75 on November 24, 1965. “Sterling” was all that the name implies, as his many friends throughout the nation can attest. He knew that to have friends, you had to be one - and he measured up in all respects. He was graduated from the D.D. Palmer Chiropractic College in 1908, and thus was among the earliest pioneers to follow in the footsteps of “the Old Master,” whom he eulogized on every occasion.
