Daniel Elmer Salmon, First DVM
Smith, Donald F.
Daniel Salmon DVM (Cornell 1876) deserves to be included as one of the three most important US veterinarians of the 19th century. During his 22-year tenure as head of the Bureau of Animal Industry, Salmon and the scientists under his direction made epoch discoveries in comparative medicine that have had far-reaching implications for agriculture, medicine, and public health not just in that era, but up to the present.
