Overview

Once seen as bumbling horse doctors, veterinarians have become licensed professionals and world leaders in animal health and welfare. They have defined new fields of service, risked all to build new veterinary industries, and expanded the horizons of medical research and teaching. Who are these veterinarians? Veterinary Conversations with Mid-Twentieth Century Leaders is a collection of insightful, colorful interviews with some of the key leaders in the profession, including Wayne Kester, Leo Bustad, Juan Figueroa, Bobbye Chancellor, Bonnie Beaver and George W. Pugh. These interviews highlight the critical changes as veterinary medicine matured in the twentieth century from the early germ theory of disease, which began to make human and animal health an achievable goal, to the molecular theory of disease, which seems to be taking that goal to an ever higher level. The 28 interviews make an important contribution to the history of veterinary medicine that might otherwise be lost. They contain pertinent and fascinating information not only illustrating the details of individual careers but underscoring the trends in the profession. It is a must reading for those contemplating a career in veterinary medicine, as well as for those interested in the strength and diversity of the modern veterinary profession.
