This postal cover (above) commemorates the 1943 delivery of the “Liberty Ship” SS Harvey Cushing and the celebrity of its namesake surgeon and anesthesia pioneer (Harvey Williams Cushing, M.D., “Father of Modern Neurosurgery”; Johns Hopkins, Harvard, and Yale Universities, USA) (1869–1939). Anesthesiologists salute Dr. Cushing for popularizing the use of anesthetic records and of intraoperative monitoring of patients’ blood pressures and vital sounds (breathing and heart beat). This cover was postally cancelled in the city where Dr. Cushing was born and where he was buried—Cleveland, Ohio. (Copyright © the American Society of Anesthesiologists, Inc.)
