About the Collection

The SVM Report, formerly known as the Purdue Veterinary Medicine Update, has been published continuously since 1975.  It chronicles the history of what is now named the Purdue University School of Veterinary Medicine from that time to the present.  Major accomplishments of the faculty, staff and students are reported along with news about curriculum changes, facility improvements, alumni achievements and other campus events of interest to constituents of the school.  The newsletter itself offers a visual timeline of the school from the era of black & white to full color photographs.
