He had a distinguished surgical career, including stints at Johns Hopkins and at St. Louis University—where, as chair of surgery, he developed the institution's cardiac research capabilities, which helped to pioneer early open-heart and heart-transplant procedures. As Director, President, and Executive Consultant for the ACS, Dr. Hanlon had a profound effect on the direction and philosophy of the College. He received the first ACS Lifetime Achievement Award.
