Steuer Award

HERBERT S. STEUER MEMORIAL AWARD FOR WORK IN ANATOMY

     Herbert S. Steuer was a member of the Western Reserve University medical class of 1921.  After his hospital service, he opened an office for radiology.  He was very interested in anatomy and gave what time he could to work in that department.  He became a member of the faculty and was appointed a demonstrator in anatomy in 1923, a position he held until his death on June 6, 1928.  His death was due to an accident in the course of his investigative work in x-ray technique.

     His medical associates and his personal friends raised $2,000 and requested that this be a “memorial of his work and life perpetuated as far as possible in the department he loved best; anatomy.”  The income from this fund is awarded annually to the medical student or other investigator “who in the opinion of the head of the department has done or is doing meritorious original work in the Department of Anatomy.”
