How do I get permission to use reproductions of photos in a book or to hang in an office?



Photographs are copyrighted by Palmer College of Chiropractic. For the majority of requests, a permissions form needs to be completed and signed. 

When making a photograph reproduction request:

  • If you already have an image in mind, be as detailed as you can. For instance, we have many images of B.J. Palmer, so are you interested in a profile picture, from the 1930s, one of him adjusting, etc.? 
  • If you see the image in a book or online, send us a link or screenshot so we know exactly what you are looking for. 
  • For ideas, please browse some of our photos online. The Upper Mississippi Valley Digital Image Project and Special Collections Digital Collection have over 200 Palmer images.

All images will be scanned at 300dpi unless otherwise requested. All images are delivered electronically so no tax is charged. Charges are priced per image for one-time use only. We accept cash, credit card (Visa or Mastercard), or check.
