Biography* Richard Culpepper, D.V.M.- Veterinarian (TX)
"...In 1948, three former classmates of the Old Army A&M Class of 1943 purchased the practice, land and building from Dr. Marney. This group was comprised of Gerald W .Parker, DVM, Richard Culpepper, DVM, and R.D. Brown, DVM. Dr. Parker initially came to the Alamo Dog and Cat Hospital in 1943 but left in 1944 to serve in the U.S. Army.
     "Dr. Culpepper practiced briefly in Beaumont, Tyler and Paris after graduation before coming to the Alamo hospital in 1944 to fill Dr. Parker's position. In his relatively brief lifespan, Dr. Culpepper (1918-1968)(sic) distinguished himself as a highly competent and energetic practitioner as well as an active civic volunteer and leader. Dr. Culpepper was extremely interested in small animal nutrition and was quite proficient in the subject. His colleagues chose him to be president of the Texas Veterinary Medical Association in 1949..."
