I have my grandfather, Elmer W. FAY's May 1907 Veterinary Diploma from the Veterinary Science Association, signed by T. H. HASKETT, D.V.D. "Secretary" and J. E. HODGINS, VS &D, "President".

Can someone tell me anything about this Canadian Veterinary School?

I also have a few livestock Veterinary books - 1881 to 1916 that were used by "FAY" and his father-in-law, Dugald CAMPBELLon farms and ranches in western Nebraska up to about 1930. These old vet books are 'profusely illustrated' and indexed - if anyone would want me to look something up.

The terminology is 'quaint?', but understandable, and most of the treatments recommended are similar to those in use in today's veterinary practices. However some of the drugs listed as "remedies" are no longer available.

Interesting and a little different as research goes.
