The Evolution of a Profession: The First 75 Years of ACFAS
To celebrate its 75th anniversary in 2017, ACFAS
published “The Evolution of a Profession: The First 75 Years of the American
College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons,” a thorough look at how surgery,
and ACFAS, changed chiropody to podiatry to foot and ankle surgery – not to
mention changing the course of American medical history.
The book was written by historian Kenneth Durr, PhD with Jerome
S. Noll, DPM, EdD, FACFAS, based on exhaustive written records and the oral
histories of key leaders of the College. The book also contains detailed
appendices, including a list of all 10,000 known regular members since 1942.
Noll initiated the College’s history archives project in 2006.
