This historic image depicted Dr. Lucille K. Georg (Rt), who was the second mycologist hired by Centers for Disease Control’s Dr. Ajello in 1947-48. Dr. Georg was standing with her student, Dr. Rhoda Benham of Columbia University, who herself, was a pioneer in starting medical mycology efforts in the United States. The photo was captured during a poster presentation entitled, Some Common Dermatophytes – The Influence of the Culture Media on Gross and Microscopic Characteristics. The display took place at the American Academy of Dermatology meeting held in Chicago in 1957. The Medical Mycological Society of the Americas has a special award named the Rhoda Benham Award, which is awarded by the society every year to an outstanding medical mycologist.
