Edwin E. Goodwin, 70, animal science specialist

Edwin E. Goodwin, a retired animal science specialist for the Cooperative Extension Service of the University of Maryland College Park, died Wednesday of an apparent heart attack while training a horse. He was 70.

For 25 years, he was superintendent of the 4-H horse and pony show at the Maryland State Fair in Timonium. Mr. Goodwin retired from the university in 1989 and continued to be a consultant to the pleasure horse industry on national and state levels.

Last year, he spent five weeks as a consultant for veterinary horse programs in Hungary under the auspices of the International Exchange Corps.

In a 1977 interview, Mr. Goodwin said that horses are one agricultural enterprise with popularity that seems to increase in almost direct proportion to the density of human population.

"Horses are inherently attractive to people," he said, adding: "As the late Will Rogers once observed, 'There's something about the outside of a horse that's good for the inside of man.' "

Born and raised on a livestock farm near Shreveport, La., Mr. Goodwin earned a bachelor's degree in 1946 from Louisiana State University, a master's degree from Cornell University in 1948 and a doctorate from Washington State University in 1955, all in animal science.

A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. today at University United Methodist Church, 3621 Campus Drive, College Park.

He is survived by his wife of 49 years, the former Cornelia Ferrell; three sons, William B. Goodwin of Afton, Va., Mark A. Goodwin of Jefferson, Ga., and Thomas J. Goodwin of Salt Lake City; his mother, Velnia Goodwin of Princeton, La; two sisters, Myrtle Langston of Princeton and Gwynn Haynes of Waskom, Tex.; and two grandsons.
