Digital videos from James F. Wright collections online

Videos from the James F. Wright collection relating to Africa, wildlife, immobilization, and anesthetic agents, have been digitized and are available online. For an example, view Zambezi (South African Screen Productions).

Dr. Wright, an honorary diplomate of the American College of Zoological Medicine and a pioneer in zoological health served on the faculty of N. C. State University and from 1984-2004, was pathologist and consulting clinical veterinarian at the North Carolina Zoological Park. He was the first clinical veterinarian at the National Zoo in Washington, DC, and helped establish a national zoo in Senegal, Africa. He contributed to refining early dart guns and tranquilizing agents. In addition to the ACZM, he was a member of the American Association of Zoo Veterinarians, Wildlife Disease Association, American Association for Laboratory Animal Science, Society of Toxicologic Pathologists, American Association of Zoological Parks and Aquariums, and the North Carolina Veterinary Medical Association.

The Collection Guide provides a preliminary inventory with brief description and links to selected videos which have been digitized.
