Name of creator
Instruction in veterinary science commenced in the College of Agriculture as early as 1913 and an animal diseases laboratory was established in 1924. Discussions among officials of the prairie governments in 1944 and 1956 led to negotiations for a school to serve the western provinces. The University of Saskatchewan was selected as the site for a college in 1963. Teaching began in 1965. The following individuals have served as Dean: D.L.T. Smith (1963-1974); N.O. Nielsen (1975-1982); G.F. Hamilton (1983-1992); A. Livingston (1992 ).
