R. Barrett Noone, M.D. was selected in 1997 to be the first Executive Director of the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He held this role for 18 years, supporting the specialty and representing plastic surgery with distinction and respect, while continuing in practice and on the faculty of the University of Pennsylvania. He served on the Board of Directors of the American Board of Medical Specialties and was elected chair of the Member Board Executive Caucus of ABMS. To honor his extraordinary career, the present and former directors of the American Board of Plastic Surgery established and funded the R Barrett Noone Lectureship in 2015. It was natural that the fund should be placed with the Association, as Dr. Noone was elected to Association membership in 1980 and he is a Past President, Distinguished Fellow, and Honorary Award recipient of the Association. The first Noone Lecture was given by Dr. Noone himself in New York, speaking on the field of plastic surgery "From Trenches to Transplants". Subsequent lecturers will be selected by the President of the Association for the annual meeting at which he or she presides. The lectureship will rotate with the Kiskadden and Murray lectureships. The Noone Lecturer is to receive up to an $8,000 honorarium. Any investment income in excess of that needed to support the lecture will be directed to the Scholarship Fund.
