The late Gregor Morgan, BVSc, MVSc, DACT, of Mehan, Oklahoma, was recently inducted into the Oklahoma Higher Education Hall of Fame. Morgan was an associate professor of production medicine and theriogenology at Oklahoma State University College of Veterinary Medicine teaching for more than 30 years and serving as the food animal medicine section chief for 22 years.

Originally from New Zealand, Morgan earned a BVSc degree (equivalent to a DVM degree) and a master’s degree in Reproductive Physiology both from Massey University in New Zealand. He completed a three-year residency in theriogenology and a PhD in reproductive physiology specializing in swine at Oklahoma State University and became a diplomate of the American College of Theriogenologists.

Morgan was a pioneer in embryo work in both horses and cattle. He is credited with being the first person in Oklahoma to have a successful equine embryo transfer. He also participated in producing the first in vitro fertilized calf at OSU. He was instrumental in starting the laparoscopic artificial insemination service in deer and small ruminants in the early 90s.

He was an active member of the Society of Theriogenology, American College of Theriogenologists, American Association of Bovine Practitioners, American Association of Equine Practitioners and the American Embryo Transfer Association. During his tenure at OSU, Morgan was an author or co-author in various book chapters and journals. He has trained numerous veterinary students, graduate students, residents and faculty.
