Dr. Hudson was my professor at Auburn College of Veterinary Medicine from 1969-1973. As my head professor in my junior and senior years he was great influence in my choice of Bovine Medicine as a private practitioner. He arranged for me to go to his beloved Oklahoma to do my internship. He was a gifted educator and a true gentleman who cared for his students. Dr. Hudson was beloved by all his students. A true legend at AUCVM.
