Tom Carper speaks at the dedication of the University of Delaware's Lasher Laborato- ry in Georgetown on Nov. 21. Also shown are (l-r) UD trustee John E. Burris, benefactor Hi- ram N. Lasher of Millsboro, and his daughter, Denise H. Lasher, a 1977 UD alumna. Lasher Continued from pagae 37 1948 as a poultry pathologist with the state Board of Agriculture. Since then, he has founded three companies and made Delaware an international leader in the devel- opment of poultry biologics. In 1950, he founded Delaware Poultry Laboratories (DPL) in Millsboro, and began producing high quality, moderately priced vaccines, as well as providing growers with free, expert diagnos- tic services and flock management advice. Within two years, DPL had a national reputation as a leader in the field of poultry bio- logics. In 1959, his company was bought by Sterling Drug, Inc., a major international pharmaceuti- cal conglomerate. DPL became the spearhead of its animal health division, later renamed Sterwin Laboratories, with Lasher as i.ts president. It became the leading manufacturer of poultry biologics, supplying over one-third of the U.S. market, as well as substantial foreign exports. He took early re- tirement in 1979. He then began a venture known as Inter-Continental Biologics, Inc., which was a state-of-the-art, high-tech production facility, aimed at the world marketplace. His venture attracted the attention of Intervet International, a major producer of vaccines for the in- ternational market as a subsidiary of a giant Netherlands-based con- glomerate, which bought the ven- ture and installed Lasher as presi- dent, a post he held until he retired in 1982. Today, Intervet America, Inc., in Millsboro, plays a major role in both the domestic and in- ternational markets. In 1982, he founded Lasher As- sociates, Inc., and as president, he continues to serve as a national and international consultant in poultry biologics. His clients range from small businesses to multinational corporations. Lasher has served on the Poul- try Health Committee of the Del- marva Poultry Industry Inc. and on the Committee on Transmissi- ble Diseases of the U.S. Animal Health Association, and he is a member of the Agricultural Com- mittee for the College of Agricul- tural Sciences at the University. His work has won him many hon- ors, including the Delmarva Poul- try Industry's Medal of Achieve- ment, the C.A. Botteroff Service Award of the American Associa- tion of Avian Pathologists, an honorary degree from Delaware Technical & Community College, and the Order of Merit and Silver Beaver awards from the Boy Scouts of America.
