After retirement, he continued to maintain an office in the Department of Poultry and Avian Diseases until 1996 when he transferred to the Department of Microbiology and Immunology in the College of Veterinary Medicine. "Professor Cole's major contributions to science were associated with the role of genetics in disease resistance and susceptibility." He also "taught courses in genetics of the fowl and avian anatomy and participated in teaching of the introductory course in poultry diseases." 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.
