The State Live Stock Sanitary Board was created in 1923 (Ch. 9201, Laws) to regulate Florida's livestock industry. With seven to nine members chosen by the governor, the board regulated the import and export of meat and livestock, inspected meat sellers, and controlled animal diseases such as cattle tick fever, hog cholera, and tuberculosis. The board also appointed a state veterinarian to oversee day to day operations. The first state veterinarian was Jean V. Knapp. His successor was Clarence L. Campbell, who served from 1952-1961. In 1953, the Board's name was changed to the Florida Livestock Board. That Board was abolished in January 1961 and its duties transferred to the Dept. Of Agriculture's Division of Animal Industry (Ch. 59-54; CH. 61-59, Laws).
The scrapbooks contain press clippings that illustrate the functions and concerns of the State Livestock Sanitary Board from 1926-1960. Topics include tick eradication, screw worm infestation, brucellosis and tuberculosis control, federal relief aid, live stock inspections, interstate trade, veterinarian practices, and Florida's animal industry.
