I am interested in knowing whether the college in Kirksville would have ever been a school for veterinarians in the late 1800s. My Great Grandfather Perry David LEE was a veterinarian in Van Buren Co., Iowa, but I believe he may have received his degree in Kirksville. I think he may have lived with other LEE relatives in Adair Co., Mo. while attending college and I am trying to connect him with them.
Any information about this at all, would be wonderful. Thank you very much.
