Jack Rosen fonds MG536

Jack Rosen fonds. – MG 536. –862-2012. 0.3 m of material.

Dr. Jack Rosen is a book collector and retired veterinarian in Ontario, Canada, with an interest in veterinary medicine history. He donated his collection to the University of Saskatchewan through the Veterinary Medicine Library in 2004. Since the original gift he has sent two additional packages of materials. The collection consists of over 500 published works including books, journals, newsletters, offprints, pamphlets and clippings, and memorabilia including business records, certificates, and awards relating to his profession. The collection traces the development of the profession in Great Britain (1700-1900s), and its gradual movement through practitioners and educators to North America (late 1800s-1900s). The twentieth century publications focus on professional developments in Canada. The Rosen collection was housed in the Veterinary Medicine Library, but is now held in University Archives & Special Collections.

The Jack Rosen fonds describes a small portion of the collection consisting of articles and clippings on prominent Canadian veterinarians, the anniversaries of the Ontario Veterinary College over time, notable medical advancements in veterinary medicine, and other aspects of the profession's history including artefacts.
