Vet Students at Saturday Clinic
Date: ca. 1900 Size: 470x267 pixels
A rearing mule warned vet students of the perils of large animal practice at a Saturday clinic in the early 1900s.  Cadets from Ag Hill also observed the action.  The clinics weren't the only outside activity.  Dr. C.A. Cary and his chief assistant, Dr. I.S. McAdory, didn't have room to perform surgery inside, so they operated underneath a chinaberry tree.  By 1907, Cary was dean of API's School of Veterinary Medicine and state veterinarian.  He helped rid Alabama of Texas tick fever despite the sometimes armed opposition of farmers to having their cattle dipped.
