Veterinary Family Mourns Passing of Dr. Robert Carson

The College of Veterinary Medicine family mourns the passing of Dr. Robert Carson, ’73, a legendary food animal veterinarian who recently retired from the CVM after 36 years of teaching and research.

We celebrate his knowledge, compassion and quick wit he shared with thousands of Auburn-trained veterinarians and colleagues around the nation. He will be missed.

A celebration of life service has been planned by the family for Tuesday, March 31, at 1 p.m. at Auburn United Methodist Church. Dr. Carson passed away March 21, 2015.

We’d love to hear your remembrances of Dr. Carson. E-mail us at
