The authors regret that the historical account of the last quarter century of the Central Surgical Association (CSA) included an explanation on page 626 of the Jeremiah G. Turcotte Award by the CSA Foundation, established in 2012 to honor the driving force behind the CSA Foundation and its first Secretary/Executor. Unfortunately, that explanation erroneously inferred that Dr. Turcotte had passed away. We wish to correct this misinformation and are delighted to report that Dr. Turcotte is alive, in good spirits, and resides in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Dr. Turcotte sends his best wishes to all of his friends, colleagues and acquaintances in the surgical community. We deeply regret this oversight and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused.

- 75 years of the Central Surgical Association: The last quarter centurySurgeryVol. 164Issue 4
- PreviewLast year during the celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the Central Surgical Association, it was obvious that our Association had exceeded the intent of its founders… The Central Surgical Association has become one of the country's premiere surgical associations, with its members being recognized as leaders in surgery. One is honored when he or she is allowed to become a member of this prestigious Association; one is humbled if elected president of this Association. I am indebted to the members for allowing me to serve as their president this year.
