A special conversation on the history and fight against polio from a child’s perspective
This conversation between Edna Ray Black Hindson, co-author and polio survivor and Nina Stoyan-Rosenzweig, contributing editor and UF Libraries senior associate, features Edna’s personal experience growing up with polio.

The LibraryPress@UF recently published a unique scrapbook diary of Edna’s experience with polio in the 1940s. This daily journal, written by Edna’s mother on the frontlines of the fight against the polio epidemic, describes her daughter’s journey in her daughter’s voice, through the pain and loneliness of her life-changing illness.

With the recent pandemic, the story of polio—complete with the work to develop a vaccine, how our world responded together, and the individual stories of those with polio—is all the more relevant. Edna and Nina continue to share this story through presentations.
