The 1960s Integration of Veterinary Students at Tuskegee University
Smith, Donald F.; Kumble, Julie
Dr. Linda Jacobson is interviewed for a book on leadership in veterinary medicine. She is the second white veterinary graduate from Tuskegee University. When asked why so many Tuskegee veterinary students went on to major leadership positions, such as deans, leaders in public health, and organized veterinary medicine, she cited the legacy of founder Booker T. Washington and his ability to bridge the color gap.
