Citation: Macdonald, A.A., Warwick, C.M. & Johnston, W.T., 2005. Locating veterinary education in Edinburgh in the 19th century. Book of the Old Edinburgh Club, New Series Vol 6, 2005, 41-71
Publisher: The Old Edinburgh Club
Abstract: Several accounts of the history of veterinary education in Edinburgh have been published during the last two centuries, most written specifically for the profession. It is not generally well known that that three veterinary colleges were founded during the nineteenth century, by William Dick, John Gamgee and William Williams. Where and when these enterprises were located in the city has been lost from memory. It has been forgotten that discussion of the need for veterinary education began in Edinburgh during the enlightenment years of the eighteenth century.
