Saul A. Schwartz AOA Visiting Professor Lectures



There are two endowment funds on campus that carry the name of Saul A. Schwartz: AOA History of Medicine Visiting Professor Lecture, which was started in 2013 by Edward C. Halperin, M.D., M.A., chancellor and CEO, and AOA Visiting Professor Lecture, which held its 60th lecture in 2016. 

The Annual Saul A. Schwartz, M.D., AOA Lecture was established through a bequest from Saul A. Schwartz, M.D. ’30, professor emeritus, who was instrumental in establishing the College chapter of AOA in 1957. His influence and generosity to the College will continue to be felt long into the future through the endowed fund that helps to support the annual AOA lecture that bears his name.
