Dr. Johnny Moore


Professor of History

Dr. Moore’s specialties include U. S. social, religious, and medical history.  His book, Chiropractic in America: The History of a Medical Alternative (Johns Hopkins University Press, 1993), was the first book-length, scholarly attempt to explain how this sectarian health movement was able to integrate itself within mainstream medical care.  He is the former editor of Chiropractic History and has published a variety of articles and book reviews.  He was the recipient of Radford University’s College of Arts and Sciences Distinguished Teaching Award for 1994-95 and a Sun Trust Foundation/Centennial Scholars Mentor Award in 2010.  Currently, he is working on a history of celebrity in America.
