William O. Bedford, D.C.: Dedicated to Palmer

After graduating from Palmer College in 1945, William O. Bedford, D.C., opened a practice in Little Rock, Ark. from where he served as president of the Arkansas Chiropractic Association for two terms.

Dr. Bedford showed great dedication to his alma mater, first as president of Palmer’s Arkansas Alumni Association for four terms. He then became the southern regional director of the Palmer College of Chiropractic International Alumni Association, of which he would eventually serve as national vice president.

In recognition of his commitment to Palmer, in 1979, Dr. Bedford was made a member of the Palmer College of Chiropractic Board of Trustees and appointed as chair of the Chiropractic Ad Hoc Committee on the national level for grant funding for chiropractic students.

He honored both his profession and his alma mater with charitable gifts as well as time and service, including his 15 years in Palmer’s President’s Club.

These efforts led to his appointment as a Fellow in the Palmer Academy of Chiropractic, as well as a Fellowship in the International Chiropractic Association.

Dr. Bedford passed away in October of 2008. Perhaps the most telling act of Dr. Bedford’s philanthropic spirit was the donation on his behalf from his step-daughter, Faye Bolin, to continue his President’s Club membership after his death.
