This is the original 1st Edition that was approved by William G. Sutherland. In this book, Magoun takes the concepts of Sutherland and puts them into a text that became the standard for most osteopathic cranial training programs.
In subsequent editions, many things were removed and added to make the text more "Scientifically Acceptable" and much of the essence of the osteopathic approach was lost. We feel this is a valuable contribution to the literature and we are happy that it is back in print. This is a text that should be an essential part of the library of any osteopath or cranial practitioner.
The editor, Dr. Harold I. Magoun, Sr. (1898-1981) received his A.B. from Harvard University and his D.O. from the Andrew Taylor Still College of Osteopathy and Surgery in 1924. He spent two years in the Medical Corps of the American Expeditionary Force in World War I, was decorated for care of the wounded under fire, and also received the Purple Heart medal.
He was prominent in professional circles, authored many articles in the professional literature, and did much postgraduate study and teaching during his years of practice. In 1940 he was awarded the honorary degree of Master of Science in Osteopathy, and received the Fellowship of the American Academy of Osteopathy in 1962 and the A.T. Still Medallion of Honor in 1967. Dr. Magoun served on the Board of Trustees of the Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine for many years, was president of the Cranial Academy for three years, and was one of the founders of the Sutherland Cranial Teaching Foundation, serving as executive vice-president from 1953-1973.
