I don't know if he was the first 'podiatrist' or not - but I know Dr Scholl was a pioneer in foot related treatments. I spent a very pleasant hour and a half all by myself in the Dr Scholl's foot museum in Chicago this past spring. I highly recommend it for anyone interested in the evolution of foot related medicine.

I know that Dr. Lewi (MD) founded the first school of podiatry which is the New York College of Podiatric Medicine. You may be able to get this information at the Temple School of Podiatry Web Site. They have a book on the history of podiatry. I think the first podiatrist was my Great Great Great Grandfather . Dr. ZZZZ.
