Every year, the AHA awards the David M. Little Jr, Prize for the best work of anesthesia history published the previous year in English in each of three categories:
The prize is named after Dr. David M. Little Jr. (1920-1981), a long-serving Chair of Anesthesia at Hartford Hospital, Hartford, Connecticut. For many years, Dr. Little wrote the “Classical File” series of history columns for the Survey of Anesthesiology. Winners are announced each October by the AHA during the ANESTHESIOLOGY annual meeting.
The 2020 awards are for works published in 2019. The deadline for this year's nominations is September 1, 2020, and all nominations should be sent electronically to Corry “Jeb” Kucik, MD, FASA, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
