The Tuskegee University family as well as the veterinary medical profession and public health community lost a trailblazer, accomplished and respected academician, visionary leader in the control and eradication of public health diseases and dedicated veterinarian, Professor Emeritus Saul T. Wilson, Jr., DVM, MPH. Dr. Wilson passed on Feb. 1 after suffering a brief illness. He is survived his daughter, Adrienne, a Tuskegee alum; two grandsons, Ryan and Damien; one brother, Sherald; one sister, Mary Elizabeth; and a host of other family members, friends, and colleagues. His was pre-deceased by his wife, Alva Marian.
This was discussed at a first meeting of close to 20 federal agents representing the Coast Guard, FBI, Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms Bureau, Customs and Border Control in Pago Pago who discussed the growing drug problem in the territory.
The Acting Chief of Customs, Keith Gebauer, said criminals are also using the postal service to mail drugs.
Wilson was a member of the first pre-veterinary medicine class at Tuskegee Institute (now Tuskegee University) and was among the second class of Tuskegee veterinary school graduates and received his DVM degree in 1950. After graduation, Wilson began his career with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) as a field veterinarian, working on the Mexico-US Foot-and-Mouth Disease Eradication Commission.
Mr Gebauer said drugs are also discovered at the airport and more recently large quantities of Chinese-labelled medicines have been found.
"It could be the Chinese version of Tylenol. It could something as innocent as that," he said.
"The methods in which they are bringing them in, lends me to believe that that is not the case. It is sewn into clothes, it is taped to their bodie, all kinds of things that lends you to believe that this is not for altruistic purposes."
After serving in the US Army Veterinary Corps from 1952 to 1954 and receiving his MPH degree from the Harvard School of Public Health in 1955, Wilson returned to the USDA. His responsibility increased as he trained, managed and directed domestic and international programs for the control or eradication of animal diseases important to trade or human health. In 1990, the USDA paid tribute to his efforts and designated the "Saul T. Wilson, Jr. Scholarship Program" to attract students from underrepresented groups in the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) workforce to careers in veterinary medicine and biological sciences.
Keith Gebauer said most of items orginate in China or Vietnam and some have tested positive for the presence of PCP or angel dust.
After retiring from the USDA, Wilson returned to his alma mater and served faithfully as a professor of epidemiology and director of the Center for Tropical Animal Health (international program in veterinary medicine). He retired from Tuskegee University in 1989 but continued to serve in a consultant role. His actions have inspired veterinary students to practice public veterinary medicine.
Pine says that his/her Bitcoin address is one of the richest 250 addresses today. As for the Pineapple Fund, Pine says that he/she has more money that they can spend in their lifetime. In fact, the $86 million value of the Pineapple Fund is higher than the total market capitalization of Bitcoin back when Pine first got involved with the cryptocurrency.
So, Pine decided to use his/her crypto fortune to help out charities in need. To date, the Pineapple Fund has donated $37 million to 42 different charities. As that the blockchain is fully transparent, all Bitcoin charity donations can be verified.
“The College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) is mourning the loss of another veterinary trailblazer, Professor Emeritus Dr. Saul T. Wilson, Jr. He has ended his earthly journey of love, commitment and dedication to Tuskegee University, but the impact he has made locally, nationally and globally is so significant, that his name will be forever remembered and noted in history as one of the greatest in veterinary medicine,” said Dr. Ruby L. Perry, dean of the CVM.
