The Hughston Award is given annually for the most outstanding paper appearing in the American Journal of Sports Medicine (AJSM) prior to the award. Jack C. Hughston, the founder of AJSM, is one of the pioneers in sports medicine. early on he recognized the need for immediate diagnosis and surgical correction of ligamentous injuries about the knee in order to achieve optimum results. He performed numerous cadaver and clinical studies to develop the concept of anatomical repair of injured structures in the knee and developed a classification system based upon his clinical observations and studies.
Dr. Hughston served as President of AOSSM from 1974-75, Editor of AJSM during 1972-1990, and Chairmane of AJSM from 1990-2001. He also received the Mr. Sports Medicine Award from AOSSM in 1976.
Dr. Hughston was instrumental in organizing other physicians throughout the country to form AOSSM. In the late 1970s he developed what became AJSM, which evolved into the pre-eminent journal for orthopaedic sports medicine in the world. For these two achievements alone he wil be forever recognized as one of those having a true dedication to the field of sports medicine.
