While Jan. 15, 1921, is cited as the founding date of what would become the American Physical Therapy Association, official records of APTA's early days didn't emerge until almost two months later, by way of the first-ever issue of P.T. Review. The review would go through three name changes over the years, and is now known as Physical Therapy, or PTJ.
In honor of the 100th anniversary of APTA's founding, we're sharing a facsimile excerpt from Vol. 1, No. 1 of P.T. Review, wherein the world first learned about the association's birth. You can view a text transcription of the contents of this pdf below the reproduction.
