It is also being nominated under Criterion B for its association with Dr. George E. Hariman for his significant contributions to the profession and practice of chiropractic during his career. There are two periods of significance for this resource. The first, associated with Criterion A, is 1928, the year the hospital was constructed. The second, associated with Criterion B, is from 1928 to 1977, beginning with the year the hospital was constructed by Hariman and ending with the year of his death; this period encompasses the many significant contributions Hariman made to the field of chiropractic practice, education, and legislation. Dr. Hariman operated the hospital until his death in 1977. The building is significant on the national level for Criterion A and on the state level for Criterion B.
