Earl Franklin Craton graduated from the Palmer School of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa in the year 1925. He was 22 years old. He soon went to work in his sister Ruth's office in Shawnee, Oklahoma. She had graduated a few years before. He was put in charge of her colonics department. He had leased the Neurocalometer, a device that was created to measure heat along the spine, in order to tell according to his teaching, where there was a misaligned vertebra. He had been trained in Palmer's Toggle Recoil and Hole In One techniques along with various other methods, and was ready to cure humanity of its ailments by correcting the vertebral subluxation and restoring the proper impulses between the vertebrae.
Earl Craton was an attentive and studious pupil. He believed in what he had been taught and was convinced that with hard work and careful and deliberate methodology he could cure many different diseases. He was right. He had the ability to cure, in essence, many different types of diseases. But, it wasn't until many years later and untold hours of research that he would gain the understanding that was necessary to accomplish his goal -- getting sick people well.
At one point in his career he had become so disillusioned by his profession that he actually got out of the business. He made a go of it in another line of work but fortunately, for the sake of humanity, that business failed.
Earl Craton was born to be a chiropractor. He knew the work and he decided that he would continue in the field. He did decide though, that if he couldn't accomplish his goal without the truth at his side, that he would end his career as a chiropractor. He began studying a real human skeleton in detail.
