American Thyroid Association Timeline

The Clark T. Sawin History Resource Center is intended to be of primary benefit to the American Thyroid Association (ATA) as it supports and memorializes the work of Dr. Clark T. Sawin, a loyal and valued member of the ATA from 1972 - 2004. Dr. Sawin served as chair of the history and archives group for many years; as the presenter of the history vignette at ATA annual meetings from 1993 – 2003; and as president of the ATA 2003-2004. To acknowledge the importance of the ATA in Dr. Sawin's professional life and as a means of continuing his important work in history, his family established The Clark T. Sawin History Resource Center at the ATA.

First regular program Meeting, American Association for the Study of Goiter

Hotel Illinois, Bloomington, Illinois – January 23-25, 1924   The first session convened at St. Joseph's Hospital, 7:45 a.m, January 23. The program committee announced that they felt justified in featuring ethylene anaesthesia at this annual meeting in view of the fact that it is attracting great interest at the present time and it was so satisfactory at the preliminary clinic held December 17. OPERATIVE CLINIC: Held by Dr. E. P. Sloan, assisted by Drs. G. A. Sloan, Herman Wellmerling, J. D. Moschelle, and Geo. Newell. Four patients were operated under nitrous oxide oxygen anaesthesia, administered by Dr. Wm. Young. Four patients were operated upon under ethylene oxygen anaesthesia, administered by Dr. Dennis Rupp, assisted by Mr. P. J. Me–Curdy of the Safety Oxygen Gas Machine Company. The anaesthesia was featured and comparison of effects of nitrous oxide and ethylene was made. It was obvious that ethylene is more potent than nitrous oxide, that the patients are anaesthetised quicker and recover normal consciousness sooner than after nitrous oxide.
