Description

Dr. George H. Monks, a graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Medical School, lectured on surgery at the medical school and taught pathology and surgery at the Harvard Dental School. He published on carcinoma of the appendix, fractures of the humerus, acute pancreatitis, aseptic surgical technique, and finger avulsion. His awareness of the need for surgical rehabilitation led him to care for a wide variety of facial disfigurements. In addition to being a physician, Dr. Monks was an accomplished sculptor. He created three-dimensional models of anatomical structures and museum-caliber classical figures and objects. The George H. Monks Lectureship, established in 1972, honors Dr. Monks' contributions to reconstructive surgery.
