Dick’s last request was that I publish this in his honor: Epitaph of R.C. Schafer And some stood proudly erect, on a level some higher than their
previous station, now where the viewpoint was different “Oh captain, my captain.” And he said softly, “Thank you,” and took his leave. Paraphrased from “The Dead Poets Society.”

David L. Stussy, D.C. authors “Marking the passage of a chiropractic genius” (p. 9): Lowell Ward, a leader in the chiropractic profession for the last half century, passed away on June 8, 2001. Dr. Ward was a contributor to the chiropractic profession throughout his life, and is most well known for his work in the creation of the unique and advanced concepts of the intricacies of the spinal column as a synchronous unit and its effect on the overall health of humankind.
In 1980, he wrote a book which was ahead of its time, called “The Dynamics of Spinal Stress.”
One of his most important contributions was his standard procedure and standard manual for evaluation, which was well ahead of any of the more recent guidelines that had been established in the last few years.
The manuals still are ahead of their time in terms of their ability to objectify out the dynamic of spinal changes and to measure and prognosticate the effect of the treatment and how it would affect a human individual.
In his later years, Dr. Ward discovered the spinal and neurological state and possibly the personalities of the individuals as affected by these spinal column dynamics. He also was the first to indicate that there were some contraindications to changes in the spine, which should be known to the profession at large.
All these writings and ideas made Lowell very controversial. As today’s standards now indicate, he was definitely ahead of his time. The things that advanced chiropractic neurologists are documenting today about changes in the body, about the long and short term consequences, the neurological integration of the spinal column and the brainstem as a whole, and its effect and ability to measure changes on a more sophisticated level were all indicated in the early steps of Dr. Lowell Ward.
He was truly a genius. Dr. ward truly changed the lives of many chiropractors, patients and the profession at large.
(Dr. Stussy is in private practice in Minneapolis and counted Dr. Ward among his greatest mentors.)

“A moment of silence for Dr. Arnie Taub” (p. 1):
Dr. Arnold Taub (Arnie), who practiced in Nutley, New Jersey, passed away March 21st. Dr. Taub was 58 years old. He liked to do his own handyman work and he fell while working on his roof. Besides enjoying working on his house, his hobbies were snow skiing and fishing. It was not surprising that ore than 400 people attended his funeral on March 24th since Dr. Taub was very well liked by his peers and patients. Over his 35 years of practice, he was very active in the Council of New Jersey Chiropractors. He practiced CBP for 15 years and helped teach these seminars in New Jersey and New York. He received the CBP Chiropractor of the Year award in 2000. He will be greatly missed by family and friends, who feel cheated by his premature untimely death. He is survived by his wife, Agnes, his mother Beatrice Taub, and three children, Steven, Alyson, and Lindsey. Since CBP was such a big part of his life, Agnes requests that anyone wishing to contribute to a fund in his name to send it to CBP Nonprofit, Inc., PO BOX 1590, Evanston, WY 82931-1590 and these funds will be set aside for some special project to be determined by Agnes in the future.
