History

Logan College of Chiropractic (known at its founding as Logan Basic College of Chiropractic) was named for its founder and first president, Hugh B. Logan, D.C. Logan College enrolled its first class of seven men and women on the first of September 1935. The college was housed in a converted residence at 4490 Lindell Boulevard in St. Louis. The college eventually moved to a 17-acre (68,800 m²) estate in the suburb of St. Louis called Normandy. In the summer of 1973, Logan College moved to its present location, formerly a Maryknoll Seminary. The campus is on a 112-acre (0.45 km²) wooded hilltop in Chesterfield.

Accreditation

In June 1978, Logan College received accreditation from the Council on Chiropractic Education (C.C.E.). In 1987, the North Central Association granted Logan College accreditation of the academic program. Logan has received continuous reaccreditation from both organizations since receiving accredited status.
