JEFFERSON CITY (AP) - A physician regarded as the father of osteopathic medicine has been inducted into the Hall of Famous Missourians during a ceremony at the state Capitol.

Andrew Taylor Still founded the American School of Osteopathy, now called A.T. Still University, in Kirksville in 1892. His form of medicine focused on the body, mind and spirit. There now are more than 82,000 osteopathic physicians.

Family members, medical students and physicians were among those watching Wednesday's induction ceremony in the state House chamber.

The Hall of Famous Missourians is a collection of busts that generally has honored people chosen by the House speaker. Four new people were selected this past December, and half were chosen through a public nomination and voting process. Still received the most votes from the public.
