A Moment of Silence for Dr. Reginald Gold

Reginald "Reggie" Gold, DC, PhC, 1957 class president and valedictorian of Palmer College of Chiropractic, devout advocate of chiropractic principles and philosophy, and author of The Triune of Life, passed away on March 24 following a lengthy illness.

A tribute posted on following his passing provided insight into his influence on the profession during his career:

"For seven years [Reggie] held Chiropractic information meetings every month and invited anyone who wanted to attend to learn the philosophy of Chiropractic. These meetings were never advertised and there was never a charge to attend for the 50 to 200 people in attendance at the Gold's home. He followed that up with no less than 40 layman lectures each year in various chiropractic offices to help chiropractors build their own practices."

"Reggie also worked to increase public understanding of and interest in chiropractic by starting a patient organization called PACE. Patients brought their friends to learn about the benefits of chiropractic, causing literally hundreds of practice members to take the leap and become chiropractors as a result. He persisted despite threats to his life."

Dr. Gold helped found Sherman College of Straight Chiropractic, serving as its first academic dean, as well as vice president and dean of philosophy. He also helped found the ADIO Institute of Straight Chiropractic, which eventually became the Pennsylvania College of Straight Chiropractic.
