Early in his career, he established the veterinary division of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 1947. He then boldly introduced the principles of veterinary public health to the U.S. and over sixty countries around the globe, helping to plant seeds for the resurgence of the One Health movement.
