George Stubbs Award
The George Stubbs Award recognizes the contributions made to equine veterinary medicine by individuals other than veterinarians. The award is named for George Stubbs (1724-1806), the artist and teacher who played a vital role in veterinary education. He studied and taught anatomy at York Hospital in England, using detailed drawings as a guide to equine anatomy. His reference book, Anatomy of the Horse, published more than 200 years ago, is still universally recognized as an authoritative anatomical depiction.
Individuals eligible for this award are those persons who have not received a degree in veterinary medicine and do not practice veterinary medicine. However, the individual must have been directly responsible for performing an act or acts to benefit the field of equine veterinary medicine in any or all of the following areas:
The accomplishments may be based on a sustained effort or an extraordinary single achievement.
