MEMOIRS, REMINISCENCES and PERSONAL STORIES by VETERINARIANS 

Everyone loves stories, and tales about veterinarians’ interactions with animals and people are no exception. Those told by James Alfred "Alf" Wight (better known as James Herriot) continue to delight. While Herriot is beloved for his heartwarming narratives about past veterinary practice in Yorkshire, England, he is not alone. Many other veterinarians have had similarly warm, exciting, funny, and touching experiences with animals and people during their careers worth sharing and preserving. 

 

Aside from oral history interviews and formal autobiographies, memoirs, reminiscences, and recollections written by veterinarians are important not only for describing past experiences but for capturing a historical record of the profession.

 

AVMHS strongly encourages practitioners to write excerpts, or even compile an entire book, of their experiences and adventures for later generations of family and other readers to appreciate and enjoy their stories.
