Events and Photographs

On this page are a few of the photographs I made during Commencement events this year. Each photo is linked to a larger file for viewing/saving. After each collection is a link to a slide show for all the photos of that event. Hope you had as much fun as I did. It was a privilege and pleasure to work with you these past four years. Enjoy. Here's a review of the week's events.

Click on each image to see a larger version or view more photos by following the link below some of the collections. If you would like the full resolution file (free) for printing, I can send it to you via e-mail. If you prefer, I can make prints. Please send me an email and list the file name(s) and the sizes you need (4x6, 5x7, 8x10, or larger). I'll get back to you with an estimate of cost and time.

By popular demand, I'll have a DVD of all the photos available after graduation. Write to me and I can send you the disk.

The HOODING Ceremony

The academic hood not only represents the degree held by the wearer but also the institution which awarded it. Thus, the hood is made with traditional gray for veterinary medicine and carnelian red and white for Cornell.

The HOODING was held at Bailey Hall on Saturday, May 26th at 2 pm. Candidates for the degree, Doctor of Veterinary Medicine, and CUHA interns and residents completing programs assemble with parents, friends, spouses, partners, colleagues, faculty and guests. Dean Kotlikoff addressed the assembly and placed the hood representing the DVM degree on each candidate. The Veterinary Oath was administered by Dr. Linda E. Jacobson, President of the New York State Veterinary Medical Society. Dr. Bruce Kornreich (Pfizer Distinguished Teacher Award - 2012) delivered the traditional "charge to the class". Dr. Bill Horne, CUHA Director recognized the interns and residents who have completed programs in the Hospital. Here are some of those photographs.

An endowment for this prize was originally given by Mr. Horace K. White for the student with the highest academic record during veterinary training. This award, originally called the President's Prize, dates to 1873 and is probably the longest-standing prize at Cornell. This is the first time two students finished with identical top-of-the-class GPA! In 1965, Ms. Mary Wells Miller Ewing established this award in memory of her husband, Dr. Malcolm E. Miller '34, a professor of anatomy and head of that Department from 1947-1960. The recipient is a fourth-year veterinary student who, in the judgement of the Dean, has demonstrated perseverance, scholastic diligence, and other personal characteristics that will bring credit and distinction to the veterinary profession. This award, endowed in 1993, is for the fourth-year student who most successfully demonstrates potential for professional and/or academic leadership in veterinary medicine.
