North Carolina Veterinary History

The North Carolina State College of Veterinary Medicine was established in 1978, admitted its first class of DVM students in August 1981, dedicated its main facility in April 1983, and graduated its first class of veterinarians in May 1985.

Dr. Terrence Curtin, founding dean of the NCSU CVM, completed his history of the college.  The College of Veterinary Medicine, North Carolina State University: A Personal Perspective of Its Founding is available online in NCSU Libraries' Historical State and in NCSU Libraries as hardbound books.
