Memorial Statement for Professor Herbert F. Schryver, D.V.M. (1927-2017) was known for his expertise in veterinary pathology as well as equine nutrition and biomechanics. He earned his veterinary degree in 1954 from Cornell and a Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania in experimental pathology in 1964. He was appointed to the faculty at Cornell in 1966 and served as director of the Equine Research Program. His interest was in equine nutrition, especially the physiological effects of growth and exercise, and mineral metabolism. His biomechanics of locomotion research led him to investigate the roles of diet and exercise on bone strength in horses, as well as the effects of electrical stimuli on healing of bone fractures. He retired as emeritus professor in 1990.
