He became head of the Department of Pathology and Bacteriology (1926) and Dean (1932-1959) of the College. In addition to administration, he achieved a notable record in research and authored more than 126 scientific articles and professional texts, including "The Infectious Diseases of Domestic Animals" which was first published in 1943. In addition to serving on many national and international committees and commissions, "Dr. Hagan's reputation as an international figure in the field of veterinary education was based on solid ground. In the area of research, he made important contributions to our knowledge of brucellosis and paratuberculosis." The memorial statements contained herein were prepared by the Office of the Dean of the University Faculty of Cornell University to honor its faculty for their service to the university.
