A note about Dr. James McClure from Dean Donald Smith

I am deeply saddened to report that Dr. James McClure '69 of Fairfax, Virgina, passed away on Wednesday, February 16, 2005, after a long and valiant fight with cancer. Dr. McClure devoted his working life to his beloved profession and to the family whom he loved. He had a deep and abiding love and respect for Cornell University, to which he attributed much of his professional success.

During his 35th reunion last June, the McClure family established the James G. and Ronetta E. McClure Residency in Veterinary Oncology, the first endowed residency in the College of Veterinary Medicine. The position was initially held by Dr. Dennis Bailey '00 and is now held by Dr. Andrea Flory.

Cards and notes of condolence may be sent to:

Mrs. Ronetta McClure
5258 O'Faly Road
Fairfax, VA 22030-5400

Dr. Adam McClure
11413 Shirley Gate Court
