Albert H. Ketcham Memorial Award

Dr. Albert H. Ketcham, as one of the pioneers in orthodontics, helped blaze the trail into unexplored realms of its science. As a student and investigator, his wisdom and judgment brought benefits to humanity and general helpfulness to his fellow practitioners. Few have given more generously of time, effort, and ability for the advancement of orthodontics than did Dr. Ketcham.

To commemorate his achievements and to serve as an inspiration to the advancement of orthodontics, The American Board of Orthodontics created The Albert H. Ketcham Memorial Award in 1936. It is awarded annually to an individual who, in the judgment of the award committee, has made a notable contribution to the science and art of orthodontics.

How AAO Constituent Organizations May Submit Nominations

The American Board of Orthodontics invites AAO constituent organizations to submit nominations for The Albert H. Ketcham Memorial Award to the ABO office. The Directors of The American Board of Orthodontics may also nominate. Candidates are not required to be board certified, but must have qualifications as outlined in the award description.

A nomination should include the candidate's name and contact information. A current curriculum vitae for the candidate is also required. If possible, submit this electronically. Documents should reach the ABO office no later than January 15th of the year prior to the award year.

The Directors consider a new roster of nominees each year. If a constituent organization wishes to repeat a nomination made in a previous year, the individual's name must be resubmitted along with a current curriculum vitae.

The ABO Board of Directors will select and announce the Ketcham recipient(s) during the annual meeting of the American Association of Orthodontists. The award is presented at the AAO annual meeting in the year following its announcement.
