This is the third in a series of 4 Historical Vignettes. Each recounts an important event in Australian chiropractic history. This vignette describes how a university professor was convinced to cease telling first year psychology students that unskilled chiropractors break patient’s necks. Inoculating students with such misinformation was a clear impediment to interprofessional cooperation that needed to be removed. Using documentary evidence, this historical vignette recounts the curious case of Plint v White.
