African-American Veterinary Students at Kansas State University (1910-1950)
Smith, Donald F.; Erickson, Howard H.
Kansas State University was one of the most important veterinary colleges to educate African-American veterinarians before Tuskegee Institute (now University) established a veterinary college in 1945. Twenty-two African-American veterinary graduates may not seem like a very large number. However, during a period when becoming a veterinarian was almost never considered a possibility by the African-American community, Kansas State provided an important beacon of hope. Biographical information about several graduates is provided.
