Plaque Text

This eminent veterinarian contributed to the improvement of animal and human health. Internationally known for his many discoveries in the field of animal disease, he conducted research on sweet clover poisoning in cattle leading to the development of an anticoagulant widely used to control harmful blood clotting in humans. A professor and research scientist here at the Ontario Veterinary College, he trained generations of practitioners. From 1916 to 1920 and after his retirement, this humanitarian taught and undertook missionary work in South Korea where he is honoured for his contribution to that country's democratic development.
