Veterinary society honors founder, historic collection


In 1978, acclaimed veterinary historian, educator, publisher and editor J. Frederick Smithcors donated his 1,200-volume personal library to the Washington State University Libraries. Thirty-five years later, the American Veterinary Medical History Society will host an all-day “Smithcors History of Veterinary Medicine Symposium” Sunday, July 21, in Chicago to honor the late WSU donor and AVMHS founder/first president.
