November 8, 1996

Faculty and Staff Honors:

-- Alan R. Warble, former operations manager in the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences, has received the highest award from the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists, the Horus Award. The award, named for an Egyptian god, typically is bestowed only on past presidents of the organization and goes to people who have made a significant contribution to the group. Warble, who is on permanent disability from Purdue, received the award for his work with the Canine Eye Registration Foundation, which is based in the Purdue veterinary medical school, and with the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists Genetics Committee. He designed software that allowed the ACVO to collect data on inherited eye diseases in purebred dogs.

-- The American Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians recently gave awards and honors to two Purdue veterinary faculty members and a student during its annual meeting. Dr. William Van Alstine, associate professor of veterinary pathology, was elected president and will serve to October 1997. Dr. H. Leon Thacker, interim director of the Department of Veterinary Pathobiology, received the E.P. Pope Memorial Award for his contributions to the recognition of veterinary diagnostic medicine as a special field. Lydia Andrews-Jones, a graduate student in veterinary pathology, received an award for the best graduate student presentation.
