Historical NoteReturn to Top

Several officers in the Women's Auxiliary of the Veterinary Medical Association became interested in veterinarians' lives and biographies about the time that James Herriot published several books about a country veterinarian in the United Kingdom. They then sponsored Dr. George Frykman and Dr. Raymond Muse of the Washington State University History Department to interview veterinarians during meetings of the Washington State Veterinary Medical Association.
