History of the Lebanon Chapter of the American College of Surgeons

Origins and Beginnings of the Lebanon Chapter of the American College of Surgeons

In 1910 the idea of forming a College of Surgeons came to Franklin M Martin while cruising on the Mediterranean Sea aboard the SS. Arabic. Thus was born the American College of Surgeons (ACS) on May 5,1913. Fifty years later a similar idea fermented in the mind of Farid Sami Haddad, an Arab living on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea to create the Lebanese Chapter of that same College. He, and his brother Fouad, invited on May 5, 1963 all the fellows of the American College of Surgeon for a luncheon at the Sheikh and Cousins Restaurant on the second floor of what is now the Blue Building.
