Biographical / Historical

The Animal Breeding Committee was formed in 1928 after the Department became integrated into the University, and replaced the University of Edinburgh and East of Scotland College of Agriculture Joint Committee on Research in Animal Breeding, which had been in existence since 1913. The Committee, which met twice a year, originally included representatives from the University of Edinburgh (including the Professor of Animal Genetics); the Edinburgh and East Scotland College of Agriculture; the Royal (Dick) Veterinary College and the Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland. Alexander Miles served as Convener of the Committee from 1928 until 1947. The Committee advised the University Court on the research, financial and administrative matters of the Animal Breeding Research Department.
