V.L. Daley, 1905-1985. Journal of the Australian Chiropractors' Association 1985 (Mar); 15:15. Abstract: Bybyan Lancelot Daley, one of the legendary figures in the history of chiropractic's long struggle for legitimation, passed away on 31 January 1985 in his eightieth year. He will long be remembered for the unique role he played in securing the first chiropractic legislation in Australia. When the South Australian Parliament passed the Physiotherapy Act of 1945, which made setting up any new chiropractic illegal, there were four chiropractors already established in practice in the State. Very soon they were engaged in bitter legal battle to overturn that law, and the Chiropractic Health Society was formed to lobby for proper chiropractic legislation.
