The Piedmont Orthopedic Foundation was organized during the annual meeting of the Piedmont Orthopedic Society on May 8, 1953, at the Cloister, Sea Island, Georgia. At this meeting, four directors were appointed to serve until permanent officers were elected by the Society members. The directors were Walter A. Hoyt, Jr., M.D., Jack C. Hughston, M.D., F. Wayne Lee, M.D., and J. Leonard Goldner, M.D.
The first meeting of the Piedmont Orthopedic Foundation was held on May 9, 1953, and the officers elected were President, Leslie C. Meyer, M.D.; Vice President, J. Leonard Goldner, M.D.; and Secretary-Treasurer, F. Wayne Lee, M.D. The members were advised that a Certificate of Incorporation for the Piedmont Orthopedic Foundation was to be filled out in the office of the Secretary of State, of the State of North Carolina. The members then agreed to a motion that was unanimously carried that the Certificate of Incorporation would be recorded in the Clerk of Superior Court of Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. Dr. Wayne Lee was to be responsible for this.
After the Spring meeting of the Foundation, contributions were solicited and, by the end of the 1953, contributions of $3,950 had been made by the membership. Residents participating in the Duke Orthopedic Training Program were allowed to apply as Piedmont Orthopedic Fellows for partial support for basic research being done at Duke Medical Center.

In addition to direct support of these research Fellows, the Foundation underwrote partially the exhibit on Athletic Injuries, with a $1,000 grant in 1971.  

The 1973 Appeal, which was emphasized by Wayne Lee, resulted in contributions putting the net worth of the Foundation about $25,000. As of the present time, the net worth based on contributions from the Piedmont Orthopedic Society as a group and individual members of the Society to the Foundation has resulted in a current balance of approximately one million dollars. This assures reasonable annual grants for energetic Residents working on research projects. 

The primary purpose of the Piedmont Orthopedic Foundation was to further the cause of Duke Resident activities in Orthopedic Research. The effort has been successful and continued support by the members of the Piedmont Orthopedic Society will assure Residents in the future that their inquisitiveness and their willingness to participate in Orthopedic Research will be encouraged.  

The Foundation has also assisted in underwriting exhibits shown at several meetings throughout the Country and prepared primarily for the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons annual meeting. The exhibits were isolated fracture of the distal radius (Piedmont fracture) directed by Jack Hughston, M.D.; femoral shortening directed by Leslie Meyer, M.D.; athletic injuries-upper and lower extremities directed by John Dobson and Frank Bassett.  

The Foundation provides funds from which capable Residents, who are eventually to become members of the Piedmont Orthopedic Foundation and Piedmont Orthopedic Society, are able to initiate clinical and laboratory studies that may eventually lead to a significant contribution to patient care and development of information useful for both clinical and laboratory research. Members are encouraged to generously support this Foundation, which reflects one aspect of their training and which allows them a way of repaying the Organization for the training that they received in the past.  

The source of your primary Orthopedic education deserves continued support and encouragement. The Piedmont Orthopedic Foundation and its activities need the help of all members.
