Memorial Statement for Professor Veranus Alva Moore, M.D. (1859-1931) who was Professor (1896) of Pathology, Bacteriology and Meat Inspection at the New York State Veterinary College and Professor (1896-1910) of Pathology and Bacteriology of the Ithaca division of the Medical School. As such, he was one of the original faculty members of the Veterinary College and later served as its Dean (1908-1929). "His training as a bacteriologist and pathologist gave him a keen insight into the close correlation between many of the diseases common to animals and man, and ideally fitted him to advocate public health measures of far reaching importance to both State and Nation." He was interested in promoting veterinary education and the important need for trained veterinarians. Dr. Moore published widely including numerous articles and books. 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.
