Medal of the Officier d'Académie de France - 1951

This medal of the Officier d'Académie de France was awarded to Dr. Frappier in 1951 for services rendered to the French cause by the Ministère de l'Éducation Nationale de la République française.

In a transcription of a speech by Dr. Albert Jutras, who was a medical student with Dr. Frappier, to the St-Laurent Kiwanas Club on June 17, 1964, in honor of the 25th anniversary of the Institute, one can read, on page 2: "At the crossroads of medical trends, I remember us receiving together, with worried looks and trembling hands, the Palmes Académiques that France bestowed upon us in 1951."
