The first award of the two fellowships recently provided for orthopedic research at the Hospital for Joint Diseases by Frederick Brown has been awarded to Dr. David Sashin of the Bronx. The fund consists of a $100,000 endowment known as the Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Brown Fellowships, the income from which is to be divided equally between two men chosen by a committee of the hospital’s directors.
Dr. Sashin, who will get $2,400, plans to continue his studies which were begun abroad. He is 30 years old and a graduate of Columbia University, and the Medical School of the University of Maryland. In 1928 he won the Henry W. Fraunthal Travel Scholarship.
