The collection provides information about Degernes’ work as a staff veterinarian at the Raptor Center at University of Minnesota, St. Paul, her involvement in the Trumpeter Swan reintroduction program, and her work as a professor at the College of Veterinary Medicine at North Carolina State University. The collection also includes materials relating to Degernes' participation in various professional organizations and conferences, her contributions to avian medicine and surgery scholarship, and her work as a consultant in parrot, raptor, and waterfowl medicine.

Dr. Laurel “Laurie” Ann Degernes was a professor of avian medicine at North Carolina State University from 1992 to 2016. She holds a B.A. in Biology (1976), a B.S. in Veterinary Sciences (1979), and D.V.M. (1981) from the University of Minnesota, St. Paul. In 1992, Degernes interned at The Raptor Center at the University of Minnesota, St. Paul, and eventually served as a staff veterinarian there from 1986 to 1990. During this time, Degernes gained national attention for her work treating and rehabilitating lead-poisoned trumpeter swans through the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ Trumpeter Swan reintroduction program. Degernes later moved to Raleigh, North Carolina, to complete her residency training in exotic and wild bird medicine at the College of Veterinary Medicine at North Carolina State University. After her residency, she became a faculty member at NC State. During a sabbatical leave in 2005, Degernes earned a M.P.H. in Epidemiology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Upon her retirement in 2016, Degernes established the Dr. Laurie Degernes Fellowship for Avian Medicine Education.
