The Legacy is more than a fascinating excursion into the genesis of veterinary medicine at Tuskegee University. It retains the fidelty to known facts not usually recorded, things like: construction of its permanent facilities "built in part with gravel from a creek and timber from a forest on a Tuskegee farm; faculty architect drew the plans, Tuskegee student tradesmen did most of the construction work under faculty supervision," and the struggles of the first faculty and those who came later, none with prior experience in veterinary medical education. The book is an appropriate tribute to a remarkable group of administrators, faculty, staff and alumni and the good things they have done; and . also, fulfills an important need to document the truth about the most ethnically diverse veterinary school in the nation.
