Holman graduated from National College of Chiropractic in 1942. After his service to the Navy during World War II, he moved to Cheyenne, Wy. with his wife Elaine, where he started the Cheyenne chiropractic Clinic. In 1960 Holman was named Chiropractor of the Year by the Wyoming Chiropractic Association, and in 1973 he was elected president of that same organization.
