Honoring an internationally recognized leader in the treatment of neurological disorders in children, the Children's Hospital Medical Center in Boston has given the University $500,000 to establish a professorship of Neurology.
The new chair will honor the late Bronson Crothers '05, former Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at the Medical School. Dr. Crothers' work forms the basis for present-day treatment of cerebral palsy. Soon after World War I he established one of the nation's first neurological hospital units for children.
The fund was made possible by an anonymous gift to the Hospital, which is associated with the Medical School.
