This award is presented to an outstanding North American scientist for their contribution in the burn field. The first award was presented in 1969 at the suggestion of Dr. Curtis P. Artz. Dr. Allen was born in Livingston, Montana and died at the early age of 48 of a myocardial infarct. Following his surgical training at King's County Hospital in Brooklyn and in Chicago, he became associated with the Department of Surgery at Northwestern University. He served during World War II in the North African and Mediterranean Theaters of War. After the War, he became involved with the Burn Unit at Cook County Hospital. He was among the pioneers in developing aggressive coverage of the burn wound, introduced several dressings in burn therapy, and focused his attention on meticulous care of the burn wound. The present day care of burns owes much to the teachings of Harvey Stuart Allen.

Dr. Eileen Bulger Discusses Trauma Study
Harborview Medical Center is one of 10 trauma centers in the United States and Canada that aim to participate in a study of a therapeutic drug on people suspected of having sustained a traumatic brain injury. The study differs from nearly all medical research in that it has received federal approval to proceed without getting consent from study subjects prior to the initiation of the treatment.
