Abstract

Morris L. Povar was born of Russian immigrants in New York City. He attended Brooklyn College before matriculating at Cornell University, first in agriculture, then in veterinary medicine. He received his DVM in 1944. After completing his World War II commitment in the Veterinary Corps, Morris joined his brother, Ralph Povar ’39, in Rhode Island and together they built a practice that exists to this day as the Povar Animal Hospital. In 1970, Dr. Povar was appointed to a tenured faculty position at Brown University, where he served in the Psychology Department and in the School of Medicine. He and his wife, Lotte Povar, have two children and are now retired in Boca Raton, Florida.
