The Journal of Anesthesia Essays and Researches ( with the Pan Arab Federation of Anesthesia Societies (PAFSA) with extreme restrain of sadness share the sad news of the death of a prominent member of Anesthesia History Middle East Society Dr. Fouad Salim Haddad, MD, on June 8, 2010. We stand today with The Department of Anesthesiology at the American University of Beirut (AUB), and the Middle East Journal of Anesthesiology (MEJA), who announced with sense of great loss to the Faculty of AUB, and to our Anesthesiology colleagues in Lebanon and all over the Arab World, the passing away of one of a great pillars of Anesthesiology, Dr. Fouad Salim Haddad.

Dr. Haddad was one of founder of new look anesthesia may be third generations since Dr. Post of AUB. He had an international reputation as editor of history section in MEJA and his articles over the years documented the Arab contributions to science and anesthesia. His role was a road map designer of the path of reaching the fact pure and simple. He contributed to humanity beyond any limit and his works would continue to excite research and publication on anesthesia history in the Middle East. He will be remembered as a great, helpful, and strict editor. A graduate of the American University of Beirut, 1953, and a Diplomat of the American Board of Anesthesiology, 1965. MEJA editors in chief wrote: He is an Associate Faculty of the Department, who had the leading role as Executive Editor of MEJA.

Dr. Haddad has been our historian who published pioneering reports about the history of anesthesia in our area, which qualified him for nomination to the WLM 2008 Laureate of the History of Anesthesia. During the World Congress of Anesthesiology 2000, Montreal, Canada, Dr. Haddad presented the history of "Key Contributions of Two Physicians" to the Department of Anesthesiology in the Republic of Lebanon.

He was one of the contributors of the book on the history of anesthesia in Arab and Islamic medicine-ancient and modern.

In appreciation of his important contributions to Lebanon, to the Department and to MEJA, the Department of Anesthesiology during the graduation ceremony 2009, offered Dr. Haddad the Distinguished Award in recognition of his devotion as Executive Editor of MEJA.

We send our sympathy on his loss to his Lady wife Sylvia Haddad, daughters: Ruwaida, Rula, and Reem, immediate family and share the loss with Lebanon, the land of greats, and The Arab World, the "cradle of civilization-as he used to describe it-and all the anesthesiologists of the world".
