George S. Bause, M.D., M.P.H., the 2019 recipient of the Wood Library-Museum of Anesthesiology (WLM) Distinguished Service Award (DSA), has a record of superb accomplishments and distinguished service to both the WLM and the medical specialty of anesthesiology. For the past 32 years, Dr. Bause has served as Honorary Curator of the WLM, where he is passionately committed to maintaining and advancing the WLM as a vibrant beacon of knowledge and service, firmly believing that the rich heritage of our specialty should not be relegated to the dust bin of insignificance or be abandoned to the predations of time. George is quick to underscore that volunteerism is a Bause family tradition; everyone in the family has donated countless hours of work over decades to advance a vast array of worthy causes. After George’s father, Hank, volunteered to perform latrine duty at Hank’s first Boy Scout camp-out, he cautioned George, “Remember, volunteering means getting your hands dirty.” Indeed, having hand-carried or otherwise transported rare books and antiques from all seven continents during the past three decades, Dr. Bause has amassed for the WLM the world’s finest collection of pre-1851 anesthesia inhalers. Many of the priceless items George has collected for the WLM have been featured in the 11 years of “Reflections” he has authored for the journal Anesthesiology.
