Sad Passing of Dr. James Stanley Guy


Dr. ‘Jim’ Guy passed on September 6th in Durham N.C. after a courageous battle with cancer. He was born in 1950 in Cleveland TN. And was raised in Michigan.  Jim earned the DVM degree in 1980 followed by a PhD in 1984, both from the University of Tennessee.  He was double boarded as a Diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Microbiologist and the American College of Poultry Veterinarians.  His entire 37-year professional career was at North Carolina State University as a Professor of poultry health management.


His work involved investigation of the molecular biology and epidemiology of viral diseases including laryngotracheitis, turkey coronaviral enteritis and reovirus.


During his career he was a recipient of the Phibro Lifetime Achievement Award in 2017 and the Charles Beard Research Excellence Award from the American Association of Avian Pathologists in 2013.


Jim was always willing to help colleagues with advice and guidance. The students he mentored have added to his considerable contribution to an understanding of viral diseases of poultry.
