Abstract

The opening of the Western Health Reform Institute in 1864 marked the entrance of Adventism into institutionalised health. Within five years of its opening the recently qualified John Harvey Kellogg was at its helm, where he would remain until the institution passed from Church Hands. Not only would his influence on Adventist Health be profound, it would extend far beyond the borders of Adventism. This paper traces the extent of that influence and attempts to provide a context for Kellogg’s success.
