|JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A physician regarded as the father of osteopathic medicine will be inducted this week into the Hall of Famous Missourians in the state Capitol.|
Andrew Taylor Still founded the American School of Osteopathy, now called A.T. Still University, in Kirksville in 1892.
Officials said Still was the leading vote-getter in a public selection process for additions to the hall. Members of his family and people involved in osteopathic medicine plan to attend Wednesday's induction ceremony.
The Hall of Famous Missourians is a collection of bronze busts that generally has honored people chosen by the House speaker.
Four new people were selected this past December for the hall. Half were chosen through a public nomination and voting process. Induction ceremonies have not been announced for the others.
