OSRT Past Presidents

On November 12-13, 1938, forty-eight x-ray technicians met in Lima, Ohio and signed an Affiliation Charter of the American Society of X-ray Technicians. These signatures officially formed the Ohio Society of X-ray Technicians, now formally recognized as the Ohio Society of Radiologic Technologists (OSRT). That same year, the first Annual Meeting of the OSXT was held. Since then, elections of officers and board members have been held at each annual meeting. Beginning at its inception, annual meetings have been held by OSRT every year with the exception of the war years of 1943, 1944, and 1945.

This page is dedicated to the following individuals who have held the position as OSRT President--in some cases twice! We are grateful for their dedication and significant service in support of all Ohio RTs.

Quiz Bowl History and Winners

In 1975, the Ohio Society of Radiologic Technologists established an annual Quiz Bowl Competition as a means to support professional interactions for students enrolled in approved radiography programs. During this annual event, a spirit of competition has always been encouraged. In addition, the event serves as a mechanism to review radiography curricular content in an interesting format that fosters discussion of relevant technical information. Over the years, many improvements have been implemented as a result of advancements in technology and many people within OSRT have invested significant dedicated service to assure successful quiz bowl competitions each year.
