Dr. J. R. Brinkley, II

Charlatan, Pioneer, Politician

Dr. J.R. Brinkley II was known as the "Goat gland doctor" and a radio pioneer but he was much more than that...


Within the walls of this new museum is one of the strangest stories you will ever hear. The Brinkley chronicles are a cautionary tale for America and this is why we have chosen to preserve the myth and legend that changed our country forever.

Our present goal is to have the
museum open October 2020.

"Brinkley electrified the nation, fell from grace (or was short on grace to begin with, depending on whose account you read), then up and died, leaving behind a bizarre, tragicomic, and quintessentially American legacy."  ~ Sarah Fisch

Discover how Brinkley fraudulently (and with no legitimate medical education) became known as the "goat-gland doctor" after he achieved national fame, international notoriety and great wealth through the xenotransplantation of goat testicles into humans!  

Walk through political history!  Brinkley launched bids to become the Governor of Kansas so he could appoint his own members!  It did not end there... with famous country music stars backing his campaign, Brinkley set his sights on the Presidency!

Listen to history in the making! The Mexican government, eager to get even with its northern neighbors for dividing up North America's radio frequencies without giving any to Mexico, granted Brinkley the chance to create one of the world's most powerful radio stations where he became a pioneer in radio and perhaps notably the father of country music radio!
