Awards Given

We are proud to have given the following awards at the USCAP meeting during the year specified.

for Best Poster Presentation

E. Leon Barnes, MD

Dr. Barnes was the founding President of the North American Society of Head and Neck Pathology. From 1972 until his retirement in 2010 he spent his academic career at the University of Pittsburgh. Dr. Barnes’ accomplishments in the field of Head and Neck Pathology are enormous. He co-authored over 175 publications and edited Surgical Pathology of the Head and Neck and the World Health Organization Pathology and Genetics of Head and Neck Tumours. He was director of the longest running Head and Neck Pathology Course and Head and Neck Pathology Fellowship in the country. Dr. Barnes mentorship and education in head and neck pathology will be remembered by all pathologists who benefitted from his knowledge and will extend his legacy.

for Best Platform Presentation

Vincent J. Hyams, MD

Dr. Hyams was an authority in head and neck pathology. Between 1968 to his retirement from the Navy in 1984, Dr. Hyams was director of the Department of Otorhinolaryngic-Head and Neck Pathology at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology. After his retirement from the Navy he continued as a Distinguished Scientist of the American Registry of Pathology until 1988. Dr. Hyams was instrumental in training many pathologists who spent time at the AFIP, many of whom went on to become head and neck pathologists, including Drs. Gnepp, Heffner, Taxy, Wenig, and Zarbo. He was author of many seminal papers in head and neck pathology, describing middle ear adenomas, Schneiderian papillomas and olfactory neuroblastoma. He was senior author of the second ARP fascicle “Tumors of the Upper Respiratory Tract and Ear” coauthored with John Batsakis and Leslie Michaels.
