Post: A Fred Hutchinson Legend

We at Athletic Awards were sad to see Dr. E. Donnall Thomas go on October 20th.  Dr. Thomas was a Nobel Laureate in medicine for his pioneering cancer research at The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center that he co-founded.  Through the study of bone marrow transplants, Dr. Thomas saved countless lives.

In 1996, Athletic Awards created a medal bearing his image for the E. Donnall Thomas Medal of Achievement and is mounted inside a custom made wood and acrylic case.  This award is presented at an annual black tie evening affair to those who show “a lifetime of achievement with far-reaching benefits to humanity”; the very same characteristics that Dr. E. Donnall Thomas himself carried.
