Collection Description: This notebook contains an unidentified student's handwritten notes of Professor Daniel Elmer Salmon's first lectures at the newly established National Veterinary College in Washington, D.C. The notes extend from October 25, 1892 to March 10, 1893 and indicate that he gave one to three lectures per week. The topic of the first two lectures was nomenclature; the topic of the third lecture was methods to control animal diseases, especially contagious diseases. Subsequent lectures relate to wounds, septicemia, malignant edema, and common infections (such as strangles, tetanus, anthrax, and glanders), with special emphasis on tuberculosis. Included with the notebook is a 1983 article written by Ole H. V. Stalheim. The title is Daniel Elmer Salmon, the National Veterinary College, and Veterinary Education. This article was published in American Veterinary Medical Association, Volume 182, Number 1, Pages 33-35. Stalheim provided biographical information about Salmon and described the lecture notes.
