57th Annual Murray S. Danforth Oration

Providence, RI US

      Dr. Danforth organized the fracture service at Rhode Island Hospital in 1931, one of four of the oldest and continuously functioning approved fracture residencies in the country. A graduate of Bowdoin College and Johns Hopkins University, Dr. Danforth was respected here and abroad as a leader in orthopaedic surgery. His meticulous concern for quality patient care, education and research served as an inspiration for all who had the memorable experience of working with him.     
      In 1957, Mrs. Danforth established the Murray S. Danforth Orthopaedic Fund for resident training and research as a living memorial to her husband.  This has provided many teaching benefits for the orthopaedic resident staff and is highlighted by the annual Danforth Oration presented each year by a distinguished orthopaedic surgeon.
