James Law: He Helped Establish a University and Founded a Veterinary College, Part I
Smith, Donald F.
James Law, the third of the trio of Scottish veterinarians who came to North America in the 1860s, had a mission that went beyond animal and human medicine. Unlike Andrew Smith and Duncan McEachran, who established veterinary colleges in Toronto and Montreal, Law was a founding faculty member at a major university in the United States (Cornell University), and he spent his career deeply committed to a broad range of disciplines that extended beyond medicine and agriculture.
