The History and Archives Committee (HAC) of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) has awarded its Archives Fellowship to Julia Chavez of Chicago, IL. Chavez, a medical student at The University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, will conduct research on the history of surgical ethics and the ACS’s role in developing ethical standards for surgical care. This annual fellowship began July 1, and Chavez will present her research findings at the History of Surgery Community Breakfast meeting at Clinical Congress 2023 in Boston, MA. Chavez will receive a $2,000 stipend, funded by the Archives of the ACS and the ACS Foundation’s Archives Fund.

The HAC Archives Fellowship is offered to support research in surgical history that uses the resources of the ACS Archives, which includes records of the ACS in Chicago and the Orr Collection in Omaha, NE. Four applicants submitted proposals this year, and applications were evaluated by the Archives Fellowship Selection Committee of the HAC.

The Archives Fund was established to support the mission and operations of the ACS Archives. Direct contributions to support the Archives Fund are welcome. Fellows who want to make tax-deductible gifts to fund this program should contact the ACS Foundation at 312-202-5338.
