The Surgical History Group (SHG) of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) has awarded the inaugural Archives fellowship to David E. Clark, MD, FACS, of Portland, ME, to fund his research project, How the Great War Accelerated the Transfer of Global Leadership from Europe to America, and How the Developing ACS Helped Enable This Transition.
This annual fellowship begins July 1, and Dr. Clark will present his research findings at the SHG Breakfast Meeting at the ACS Clinical Congress 2019 in San Francisco, CA. Dr. Clark will receive a $2,000 stipend funded by the ACS Archives and the ACS Foundation’s Archives Fund.
The SHG fellowship supports research in surgical history that uses the resources of the ACS Archives, which includes records of the ACS in Chicago, IL, and the Orr Collection in Omaha, NE. Nine applicants submitted proposals on a variety of research topics this year, and applications were evaluated by the Archives Fellowship Selection Committee of the SHG.
