A physician regarded as the father of osteopathic medicine has been inducted into the Hall of Famous Missourians during a ceremony at the state Capitol.
Andrew Taylor Still founded the American School of Osteopathy, now called A.T. Still University, in Kirksville in 1892. His form of medicine focused on the body, mind and spirit. There now are more than 82,000 osteopathic physicians.
Family members, medical students and physicians were among those watching Wednesday's induction ceremony in the state House chamber.
