Title: John King’s Black Box

Length: 01:15:00
Author: John M. King, DVM, MS, Ph.D, DACVP
Description: This 2-hour lecture is a recording of Dr. King’s famous “Black Box Lecture” which he gave many times to veterinarians and pathologists around the world, and was recorded in 1997 during an annual trip to the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Washington, D.C. Dr. King’s “Black Box”, a weathered old suitcase with a chain dog collar for a handle, represents fifty years of collecting odd and one-of-a-kind artifacts from his unique and unparalleled career at the necropsy table. These artifacts, and the stories about them give a very intimate view of Dr. King, one of the world’s finest and most beloved veterinary pathologists
