Dickinson W. Richards Memorial Lecture

The Dickinson W. Richards Memorial Lecture was established in 1973 in honor of Dr. Richards, who shared the Nobel Prize with Drs. Andre Cournand and Werner Forssman in 1956 for work leading to a practical method of cardiac catherizaton. Dr. Richards served as an associate editor of the AHA journal Circulation during the 1950's.
