Although the first veterinary class at the Colorado Agricultural College was listed in the College’s 1879 brochure, it wasn’t until 1907 that the State Board of Agriculture begrudgingly agreed to the creation of the Department of Veterinary Science with Dr. George Glover as the head. Nearly 100 years of Hope Care Cures later, the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences is preparing to celebrate its Centennial Anniversary.
“Throughout 2007 we are planning many special events to commemorate the College’s 100th anniversary,” said Dr. Lance Perryman, Dean of the College (Dr. Perryman is the College’s ninth dean in 100 years). “This will not only be a time of celebration, but a time of reflection as we look back on how far we have come, and look forward to what the future holds for us.”
The 100 Year Celebration will kick off at the CVMBS Annual Conference on Jan. 6, 2007, with a Hope Care Cures Centennial Celebration dinner featuring a number of distinctive guests. More information is available on the Hope Care Cures Web page at www.cvmbs.colostate.edu/development.
