Custodial history

Scope and content

L.F. Kristjanson (left), University President, declares the new addition open by striking the "WCVM Gavel" on a brick typical of those in the new WCVM Building. N.O. Nielsen, Dean, College of Veterinary Medicine, assists during the official opening of additions and renovations to the main building of the WCVM. Guests seated at left of image; audience and potted plants in foreground. Scene in new students' lounge.

Bio/historical note: The WCVM gavel is made of: a) a wooden handle fashioned from a fir plank taken from the old Veterinary Hygiene building (barn) which stood beside the J.S. Fulton Laboratory. This symbolizes our heritage; b) the head of the gavel is the astragalus bone from a horse (ankle bone). The bone symbolizes the animal world and veterinary medicine; c) the brick symbolizes the new building and things contemporary.
