Abstract: Memorial Statement for Professor Donald Wyckoff Baker, D.V.M., Ph.D. (1899-1978) who was Director of the Diagnostic Laboratory (1928-1933), Assistant Professor (1933) of Parasitology, Associate Professor (1940), Professor (1947), and Professor Emeritus (1965) at the New York State College of Veterinary Medicine. As such, he became the first Professor of Parasitology at the College. Over a span of 37 years, Dr. Baker was "devoted to people, the Veterinary College, and Cornell University" as a frequent traveler, speaker at hundreds of meetings, author of scientific papers, and consulting veterinarian. As a teacher, "he chose to emphasize the problem that parasitism presented to the clinician." The memorial statements contained herein were prepared by the Office of the Dean of the University Faculty of Cornell University to honor its faculty for their service to the university.
