Biographical / Historical:
Dr. Walter C. Bowie was head of the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology at Tuskegee University in 1947 and president of the American Association of Veterinary Physiologists and Pharmacologists. He worked with Dr. Hawthorne to establish a Large Animal Cardiovascular Center in the veterinary school in 1964. The center was funded by the National Institutes of Health and brought to the campus a number of the leading cardiovascular specialists and scientists in related disciplines to participate in studies on the movement of the mitral valve and to perform surgical procedures in open-heart surgery on the horse. In 1972 Bowie was named dean of Tuskegee University's School of Veterinary Medicine (from www.vet.k-state.edu/diversity/aa.htm).
