THIS opportunity to present in behalf of the American Pediatric Society the John Howland Award and medal for 1956 to Dr. Harold Kniest Faber is to me a real privilege and honor. While as a younger member of the Society, I had admired and respected Dr. Faber for many years the pleasant privilege of knowing him more intimately occurred over the years of 1949 to 1956 when I served as his successor in the Pediatric Chair at Stanford University. The extent and significance of our medalist's clinical and scientific contributions to the field of Pediatrics became clearly evident to me during this most pleasant and all too brief period.
Recipients of outstanding awards are often honored because of their contributions in some exclusive and specific phase of endeavor which they have pursued diligently for many years. Others are honored because of their capacity to contribute significantly in many fields. Our
