Hollis L. Albright, MD ’31 Symposium
Each spring, this symposium highlights new scientific initiatives at HMS. The symposium is named for Hollis L. Albright, MD ’31, who dedicated more than 60 years of his life to surgery, patient care, and the students he mentored. His children—Tenley E. Albright, MD ’61, and Nile L. Albright, AB ’61, MD—have established this endowed symposium in recognition of his lifelong achievements and to foster the values he cherished most. In addition, the Hollis L. Albright, MD ’31 Award is presented at the annual symposium to an outstanding medical or surgical student at HMS. Learn more »
George W. Gay Lecture
The George W. Gay Lecture is the oldest endowed lectureship at HMS, and quite possibly the oldest medical ethics lectureship in the U.S. The lectureship occurs each fall and was established in 1917 by a $1,000 gift from Dr. George Washington Gay, an 1868 graduate of HMS. Gay gave Harvard the fund to provide an annual income to support lectures “to the advanced, or graduating classes in the Medical School upon Medical Ethics, and upon wise and proper methods of conducting the business of physicians, as relates to fees, collections, investments, etc.” The Gay Lectureship perpetuates his deep concern for the welfare of his patients and his appreciation of the constantly arising social and economic forces that impinge on medical care.
