Smith, Donald F.
Tevis M. Goldhaft (1914-2009) was the son of Arthur Goldhaft VMD ’10, a general practitioner in Vineland, New Jersey. In 1931, Tevis followed his sister, Helen, to Cornell because the University of Pennyslvania did not accept women veterinary students at that time. Following his graduation in 1935, Tevis returned to his father’s practice and then began a 35-year career in the poultry industry that led to the development of one of the largest and most expansive poultry diagnostic and vaccine companies in the country. Vineland Laboratories constructed plants in Mexico, Israel, England and the Virgin Islands, and supervised operations in some South American vaccine plants. Dr. Goldhaft led an active life in his retirement in Haverford, Pennsylvania.
