Dr. John Bastyr Legacy Wall Unveiled

The yearlong centennial birthday celebration for Dr. John Bastyr may have ended, but a new Legacy Wall on campus will be a permanent tribute to his remarkable life.

In December 2012, Bastyr University's yearlong centennial celebration of the birth of Dr. John Bastyr culminated with the unveiling of the John Bastyr Legacy Wall, detailing his life and commitment to natural health.

More than 50 people attended the event, which included stories of Dr. Bastyr’s past, the reading of an original poem about him and the official unveiling of the wall. Among those in attendance was one of Dr. Bastyr's relatives, who came all the way from Florida.

The wall, which will be a permanent exhibit located next to the Bastyr University Chapel and is accessible to the public, was designed by Terry Duffy from Glyphic Design with text written by Jennifer Hendrix and consultation from the Pacific Science Center. The Legacy Wall details the life of Dr. Bastyr and the role he played in the history of natural medicine.

Amazingly even with all of his contributions to the field, this is the first and only permanent display where people can learn about the man many consider to be the father of natural medicine and gain a deeper appreciation for his impact on countless lives.

While the Dr. John Bastyr centennial birthday year is over, the Legacy Wall is a great way to ensure that every day continues to be a celebration of his remarkable life.
