Since 1960 at its annual meeting the Southeastern Surgical Congress has selected a varying number of "Gold Medal Papers" to be presented. Customarily a prize is awarded for the first place among the Gold Medal Papers and in some instances a second and third place. A brief history of the origin of these Gold Medal Papers is presented. With the assistance of the Executive Secretary of the Southeastern Surgical Congress a list of the Gold Medal presenters insofar as can be ascertained from the Council minutes is presented. It is unfortunate that all of the names of the Gold Medal Paper presenters have not been preserved.
