"Chiropractor’s Palacios career began at Camp Hulen" Matagorda County TXGenWeb

Norman Runyon

   Back in the year of 1936, with the country just pulling out from under the shroud of depression, the 203rd Coast Artillery from Missouri came to bleak, muddy Camp Hulen for National Guard maneuvers.
   So it was that a young armory custodian by the name of Norman E. Runyon got his first look at Palacios.
   A Lt. McGlothlin, close friend to Runyon, noticed that a family with his name lived here, so he went out to pay a call on the J. F. McGlothlin family.
   While visiting with the family, he met their daughter, Gladys McGlothlin, and mentioned her to Runyon.  
   So it was that he first heard of the woman who was to later become the wife, although he didn’t meet her until 1940 and they weren’t married until 1944.
   Runyon, who now operates Runyon Chiropractic offices here and is active in the Chamber of Commerce and the First Baptist Church, was born in Vernon County, Missouri.
