The department would like to thank the following donors for making this seminar series possible:

Frank M. Nelson (1890-1967), a native of Livingston, Montana, attended Montana State University from 1909-1911.  In 1913, Frank Nelson graduated from Kansas City Veterinary School and began veterinary practice in Columbus, MT.  In 1919, after a year in the Army Medical Corps, Dr. Nelson returned to Livingston, MT, where he practiced veterinary medicine until his retirement in 1956. The Nelson Distinguished Lecture Series was established in 1989 and is made possible, in part, through the Frank M. Nelson Fund, which was established through a trust estate bequest to the Montana State University Foundation.
