    A Conversation with Howard E. Evans
    Evans, Howard E.; Hermanson, John W. (Interviewer) (Internet-First University Press, 2012-10-27)
    Howard E. Evans, an emeritus member of the Cornell Veterinary Faculty, was interviewed by John W. Hermanson on October 27, 2012. Evans describes how his interests brought him to Cornell, where his studies were interrupted by WWII. His passion for the study of animals brought him back to Cornell and then to the Vet School. His colorful career as a public citizen and as a world renowned anatomist led him to participate in Cornell as a faculty-elected trustee and to explore many veterinary issues with animals of numerous species — including co-authoring five classic texts used worldwide. His long retirement (since 1986) has been filled with excitement too — from guiding numerous Cornell Adult University tours to various parts of the world to volunteering as a naturalist in the Ithaca public schools. Get acquainted with this legendary personality. Supplemental resources include: Howard E. Evans – Short Vita, Selected Memorial Statements: Anatomy Faculty at Cornell (20 memorials) and A History of Anatomy at Cornell by Howard E. Evans. (17 pages).
