Summary

Harold Carne joined the veterinary staff of the University of Sydney in 1928, ultimately becoming Professor of Veterinary Pathology and Bacteriology and serving two terms as Dean of the Faculty of Veterinary Science. He taught mainly veterinary pathology and bacteriology, and introduced a course on parasitology. Carne played a key role in the building of the CSIRO's McMaster Animal Health Laboratory in the grounds of the University of Sydney in 1931. The Laboratory included facilities for the university's veterinary students. As Dean of the Faculty Carne was instrumental in establishing the University's rural veterinary centre at Camden. In his research Carne focused on streptococcal mastitis in cattle, parasitic diseases of grazing animals, and coryne-bacterial infections of domestic animals. In retirement he undertook significant research on caseous lymphadenitis in the United Kingdom.
