Hugo Gregory received the first Malcolm Fraser Award for excellence in the field of stuttering at the 4th Annual Leadership Conference of the Special Interest Division on Fluency and Fluency Disorders held in Tucson, Arizona on May 1, 1997. Jane Fraser, daughter of the late Malcolm Fraser and President of the Stuttering Foundation of America (SFA), presented a plaque and $2000 award to Hugo at a special 50th Anniversary celebration of the SFA.
The award commemorates the tireless efforts of Malcolm Fraser, who struggled and overcame the obstacles imposed by his own stuttering and then devoted a large portion of his life energy to improving the lives of those who stutter. He founded the Speech Foundation of America (now the Stuttering Foundation of America), which has been instrumental in educating persons who stutter, the professional community, and the public about the problem of stuttering and its treatment. Hugo, too, struggled to overcome his own stuttering handicap, and in so doing, distinguished himself as one on the foremost authorities in the world in the field. In the judgment of the Division 4 Awards Committee, Hugo's career as a competent and caring clinician, respected researcher, trusted colleague, and worldwide ambassador for persons who stutter was clearly worthy of the first Malcolm Fraser Award.
