Each year, the AHA awards the David M. Little Prize for the best work of anesthesia history published the previous year in English in each of three categories: book, journal article and audiovisual medium. The prize is named after Dr. David M. Little, Jr. (1920-1981), longtime Chair of Anesthesia at Hartford Hospital in Connecticut. For many years, Dr. Little wrote the “Classical File” series of history columns for the Survey of Anesthesiology. Awards are announced each October at the Annual Dinner Meeting of the AHA during the ASA annual meeting.
The 2016 awards are for works published in 2015. The deadline for this year’s nominations is September 1, 2016 and should be sent electronically to George S. Bause, M.D., at firstname.lastname@example.org.
