The American College of Theriogenologists has honored Dwight Wolfe, D.V.M., with the David E. Bartlett Award for his important contributions to the field of theriogenology. Dr. Wolfe accepted the award August 11 during the 2011 Society for Theriogenology Annual Convention held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
In the 1970s Dr. David Bartlett, a founding member of the American College of Theriogenologists, created the word “theriogenology” which denotes the veterinary specialty that deals with animal reproduction.
Dr. Wolfe is a food animal professor at the Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine. After graduating from the University of Tennessee, he obtained his doctorate of veterinary medicine from Auburn in 1977 and his M.S. in large animal surgery and medicine in 1982. He became a diplomate of the American College of Theriogenologists in 1983. Dr. Wolfe is one of only four diplomates who have served as president of both the American College of Theriogenologists and the Society for Theriogenology.
Named Alabama Veterinarian of the Year in 2004, he was inducted into the Alabama Livestock Hall of Fame in 2006. In 2009 the Alabama Veterinary Medical Association presented Dr. Wolfe the Distinguished Service Award, the association’s highest honor. At Auburn University he received the College of Veterinary Medicine Dean’s Award for Teaching Excellence in 2010 and the D.F. Wolfe Teaching Hospital Barn is dedicated in his name.
The Society for Theriogenology is composed of veterinarians dedicated to animal reproduction.
