In his capacity as instructor at the National College, and later as Dean, Dr. Bader was called upon many times to lecture at state and national Chiropractic conventions. His loyalty to Chiropractic and his cooperative and progressive spirit in all things seeking the advancement of the profession will be sorely missed. Dr. Bader was a staunch and loyal member of the National Chiropractic Association for many years, and his passing will be deeply mourned by members everywhere.

Frank Winter, 87, Passes On September 1st, Frank Winter, 87, Dean of La Crosse attorneys, passed away at his home after a short illness.
Mr. Winter was very well known among the Chiropractic profession. He was a member of the law firm, Winter, Morris, Esch & Holmes, a La Crosse firm of attorneys who were so successful in defending criminal and malpractice cases for the Chiropractic profession.
Mr. Winter was born in Maine and was a dyed-in-the-wool “Maineiac.” That means that he was a typical northwoods man, strong and health, with a powerful physic and also a powerful personality. He practiced law for approximately 55 years in La Crosse. He won his fame as a defense attorney for chiropractors in the State of Texas, where he won over a hundred cases and lost only a very few. He was especially successful in malpractice cases. With the years of practice back of him, and having had a splendid education, Mr. Winter was able to quickly understand the Chiropractic situation, and to properly interpret medical law. His record stands out brilliantly and is one of which to be mighty proud. Mr. Winter was always very enthusiastic about working in connection with Chiropractic and was ready and willing at all times to leave his office to try a case or a series of cases for the members of the association.
Mr. Winter was active in the La Crosse County Bar Association, and was a member of Masonic organizations. He received his A.M. degree at Bowdoin College in 1885, and was a member of Theta Delta Chi.
He is survived by his wife, two daughters, Mrs. R.H. Langdon of La Crosse, and Mrs. Louis Callahan of Los Angeles, California, and two grandsons, Richard of La Crosse and Robert of Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri.
While in recent years “Judge” Winter, as he was affectionately known, did little work for the association, members of the NCA will not soon forget his splendid record during his active years and they will all feel a real sense of personal loss in his passing. - Submitted by Dr. A.W. Schwietert.

“In memoriam: C.R. Johnston” (p. 10):
With the death on the 14th of April of Dr. Charles Robinson Johnston, of Peekskill, N.Y., the profession loses one of the most eminent and beloved of Chiropractic pioneers. C.R., as he was known to his friends, was the first blind man to become a chiropractor. Born at Pioche, Nevada February 1, 1879, he grew up in the far west, became blind as a young man following an accident suffered as a trick bicycle rider, and after making his living for some years as a piano- tuner, studied at the Palmer School of Chiropractic. Following his graduation with honors he returned to Peekskill, where, over a period of a quarter of a century, he built up a practice and a reputation which have become a legend. Spectacular success with prominent victims of sleeping sickness in the early years of his professional career quickly gained for him nation-wide fame. He held licenses to practice in seven states.
His long years of service were filled with the things that make a real life. His gentleness toward the unfortunate, generosity to the degree of fault, unfailing good humor, and dependability in time of trial gave him an extraordinary capacity for friendship. His example has been, and will continue to be, the inspiration of a multitude of chiropractors. Thousands in and out of the profession mourn his passing. - C.W. Weiant.
