A 1943 graduate from the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Sam Guss began his career as a practitioner in Virginia. In 1955, he embarked upon what would become a 20-year career as a professor and extension veterinarian at Penn State University. He was named professor emeritus upon his retirement in 1976.
During his distinguished career, Dr. Guss served as president of the American Association of Sheep and Goat Practitioners (now AASRP) from 1979-1981, editor of the Dairy Goat Journal from 1973-1984, and authored a book entitled Management and Diseases of Dairy Goats from his personal experiences.
"He always went out of his way to help veterinary students..."
His love for students was second to no one. To honor his legacy, a memorial fund was established upon his death to provide grants for student educational opportunities.
