Two Holiday Books for Your Favorite Veterinarian
Smith, Donald F.
Two book are recommended that Dr. Smith considered to be exceptional for all people interested in the healing professions and the social milieu of medicine. Though each book is based in the world of human health, he found them to be inspiring to those of us with careers in veterinary medicine. The setting for both is Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and they sequentially span the first half of the 20th century when mammalian comparative medicine was at its zenith.
