The Purdue Veterinary Medicine family is saddened to learn of the passing of Dr. Mary A. Herron (PU DVM ‘67), of Round Rock, Texas.  She was 75.  Dr. Herron died June 12.  She was a professor emeritus in the Department of Veterinary Integrative Biological Sciences and former associate dean for professional programs at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.  According to an obituary published online September 26 by the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association (JAVMA), after earning her DVM degree in 1967 at Purdue University, Dr. Herron worked as a small animal practitioner in Mishawaka, Ind., and then joined the faculty at Texas A&M, where she earned a PhD in reproductive anatomy and physiology in 1972.  Her late husband and fellow Purdue graduate, Dr. Michael R. Herron (PU DVM ’66), was professor emeritus in the Department of Small Animal Medicine and Surgery at Texas A&M and her brother-in-law, also a Purdue Veterinary Medicine alumnus, Dr. Alan Herron (PU DVM ’75), is a professor of pathology at the Baylor University College of Medicine.
