1989 Norden Distinguished Teacher, Neil Dyer Jan 1989

1989 Norden Distinguished Teacher, Neil Dyer

Iowa State University Veterinarian

One of the first things I noticed while interviewing Dr. Ron Myers as the 1989 recipient of Norden Distinguished Teacher Award was an identical commendation on the wall from 1984. The frequency with which an instructor may receive the Norden Award is every five years; Ron Myers received his second one as they say, ASAP. When the award was presented last spring the entire student body gave him a standing ovation. That says something about his consistent dedication, enthusiasm and excellence. Indicative of this deep concern for veterinary education, he is, among other things, chairman of the curriculum committee and ...

Going To Veterinary School At I.S.U. 50 Years Ago: Some Recollections Of 1938, A. R. Packer

Iowa State University Veterinarian

The recent Golden Anniversary publication of The Veterinary Student prompts a recall on the part of those of us who were in school in 1938. As a second year student in that year one now asks what has changed and what has remained the same? I will try to describe the college of that day and time leaving comparisons to each reader based on his/her knowledge of the present.

Editorial Notes

Iowa State University Veterinarian

Through the media, and through speakers who have visited the veterinary college, I have had the opportunity to hear some of the tenets of animal rights activists, I have tried to listen with an intelligent and discerning ear since we seek, I presume, the same result, and that is the welfare of animals. Yet, somewhere along the line a problem with the methodology has developed.

Last spring, shortly after the end of the semester, a group of veterinary students had an opportunity to participate in something wonderful. That is the time of year when the Iowa Special Olympics take place, and in recent years the Iowa State University veterinary students have made a petting zoo available to the participants. I was fortunate enough to be among the number of those students.


Charles Henry Stange: A Biographic Sketch, Russ Daly Jan 1989

Charles Henry Stange: A Biographic Sketch, Russ Daly

Iowa State University Veterinarian

Dr. Charles H. Stange's influence on veterinary education and the profession as a whole reached far beyond the effects he had on the Division of Veterinary Medicine at Iowa State College while serving as its dean for 27 years. At the time of his death, it was remarked that "Perhaps it would be no exaggeration to say that Dean Stange had a greater influence on veterinary education in this country during the past two decades than did any other member of the veterinary profession."

Remembering Dean Pearson, D. E. Hauser Jan 1989

Remembering Dean Pearson, D. E. Hauser

Iowa State University Veterinarian

My first memories of Phil Pearson were from a cappella choir, Ames High School, in 1948 and '49. He had a cherubic face and first tenor voice to match. I remember him as a nice guy as heowas as short and immature as I was. Our paths parted as he graduated from Ames HigH a year after me, in 1950. I had thoughts about Veterinary School of the next four years but ended up cQmbining a potpourri of classes into a B.S. in Farm Operations. At that time in my life, grade point was not the first priority. After ...


Being Dean...And Beyond, Neil Dyer Jan 1989

Being Dean...And Beyond, Neil Dyer

Iowa State University Veterinarian

One thing is for certain, in 1956 Phillip Pearson did not become a dentist. A few years earlier he had considered the field but decided that "standing in one place and looking into people's mouths" was not for him. Instead, that same year, he graduated from Iowa State University with his DVM and nothing was to be quite the same for himself, the College of Veterinary Medicine, and a good many other people as well. Following graduation, he did a ftfteen month surgical internship at Angell Memorial Animal Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. When he had occasion to work closely ...

Veterinary College Helps With Special Olympics, Robert Blomme

Iowa State University Veterinarian

Ames was home to the Iowa Special Olympics this past year and once again the Iowa State University Veterinary College was instrumental in making it a success. The class of 1990 coordinated a petting zoo for these special children and adults. Just like past years, the petting zoo was extremely popular. Borrowing two tents from the Ames National Guard unit, we had ample room to house calves, lambs, kid goats, piglets, puppies and a pony.


Georgia Transplant, Neil Dyer Jan 1989

Georgia Transplant, Neil Dyer

Iowa State University Veterinarian

The first time I saw Dr. Oscar Fletcher was in the spring of 1989 during his visit to Iowa State University as a Dean candidate. He spoke to several groups and not only did I like what I heard, I liked the ease and skill with which he made his ideas understood. Some two and a half months later, on July 13th, just two weeks into his new responsibilities, I saw him again in the hallway of the veterinary school. It was 6:45 AM and he looked as if he had been up for awhile. I was thinking about ...
