Memorial Statement for Professor Francis Henry Fox, D.V.M. (1923-2015) who was initially recruited for Cornell's Ambulatory Clinic upon receiving his DVM in 1945. As professor of large animal medicine from 1947 to his semi-retirement in 1992, he provided Ambulatory Services and taught the art of physical diagnosis to generations of veterinary students. As a beloved prankster, past students fondly remember his sense of humor as well as the annual birthday jokes and bridge painting. Many of these recollections are recorded in The Fox Chronicles booklet. Dr. Fox held various administrative positions, including Head of the Ambulatory Clinic and Chair of the Department of Large Animal Medicine, Obstetrics and Surgery (LAMOS). He was also active in various professional organizations, including the American Veterinary Medical Association and New York State Veterinary Medical Society. Even in retirement he remained a driving force behind Senior Seminars and continued his interest in farm families and their animals. Dr. Fox was a giant in veterinary medicine.
