Historical Note

Veterinary Medicine was founded in 1910 as The American Journal of Veterinary Medicine. The journal superseded the Missouri Veterinary Bulletin, and was published by D.M. Campbell in Chicago, Illinois. The journal published scholarly articles on veterinary medicine, and had a special section for letters requesting and providing veterinary medical advice. The journal ran from 1910-1947, when it was merged with The North American Veterinarian, the Wheaton, Illinois veterinary publication which later became Modern Veterinary Practice.

Delwin Marton Campbell, D.V.S. (?-1952), practiced veterinary medicine, published Veterinary Medicine, and began research on a book on the history of veterinary medicine in America. In the early issues of the journal, Campbell emphasized avian medicine. Campbell emphasized the importance of avian practice in his early editorials and created a Department of Poultry for the journal. In 1928, 38 articles from Veterinary Medicine were republished in the booklet, “Poultry Practice,” which went on to three printings.

Scope Note

The collection also includes writings by D.M. Campbell, such as a preliminary draft of his Development of Veterinary Medicine in North America, and a draft of his co-authored "A Plan for a Veterinary Service in Illinois." The collection also contains offprints of papers from the 10th International Veterinary Congress, London, 1914, and the 11th International Veterinary Congress, London, 1930, a list of veterinary soldiers in WWI with article reprints and handwritten notes on veterinary medicine and war, and drafts of award presentation speeches and articles from the field of general medicine, including a bibliography of published works by Dr. Edward Andrews.
