Distinguished poultry veterinarian dies

31-01-2008 | |

Arnold S. “Rosy” Rosenwald, extension poultry pathologist emeritus at the University of California, Davis, died on 23 Jan at age 98.

Rosenwald’s dedicated career to poultry medicine spanned more than 70 years. He initiated the Extension Poultry Disease Program in 1946 when he accepted a job at UC Berkeley for four years until he joined UC Davis in 1950, where he remained until his retirement in 1977.
Rosenwald, in addition to his multitude of honours and accolades, was a charter and life member of the American Association of Avian Pathologists and served in multiple roles at the organisation.
UC Davis is planning a memorial service to honor Rosenwald in late February.
