Name of creator
Errol E.I. Hancock established the provincial veterinary laboratory at Nova Scotia Agricultural College and served as Nova Scotia's first provincial animal pathologist. Born in 1902 in Port Hope, Ontario, he graduated from Ontario Veterinary College in 1924 and worked in general practice in Ontario for two years and another year in Montreal as a veterinary inspector. He moved to Nova Scotia in 1927 to work on tuberculosis testing of cattle and other disease eradication measures. He was appointed provincial animal pathologist after joining the Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture in 1937, the same year that he established the provincial veterinary laboratory. He was a founding member and president of the Nova Scotia Veterinary Medical Association, a founding member of the Canadian Veterinary Association, and a member of the Nova Scotia Institute of Agrologists. In September 1972, NSAC's Hancock Veterinary Laboratory building was completed and named in recognition of his work. Hancock retired in 1963 and died on 26 July 2008.
