The C.R. Stephen Lectures honor the first chair of the anesthesiology department at the School of Medicine, C. Ronald Stephen, MD, FFARCS.

Washington University School of Medicine named him professor and chairman of the Department of Anesthesiology in 1971, at which time he also was named anesthesiologist-in-chief at Barnes-Jewish and St. Louis Children’s hospitals. Following his retirement from academic medicine in 1980, he served as chief of anesthesiology at St. Luke’s Hospital, St. Louis, for five years. He was known for his devotion to teaching, pioneering two anesthetics — Halothane and Ketamine — and developing inhalers, valves, and vaporizers for more controlled administration of anesthetics.

This lecture is partially funded by gifts from Dr. Stephen’s former colleagues, trainees, and friends who generously endowed the C.R. Stephen Lecture Fund.
