The “Dynamic Fracture Association” was established in 1938 and a group of midwestern surgeons gathered to discuss various types of fracture care and trauma-related issues. The name “Dynamic Fracture Association” was changed to the American Fracture Association (AFA) under the leadership of President Henry Mardin in 1952 and the scope of the organization began to expand. In the following years, the organization expanded its cooperation with international orthopedic colleagues, established a research fund, and awarded an orthopedic education grant called the “Meydening Prize” to aspiring young orthopedic residents.
