Theirs was a shared struggle of multiple operations, constant therapy and the dispelling of many preconceived notions as they battled for personal inde- pendence. What they overcame established a legacy of fulfill- ment and something they still refer to as "The Spirit of Warm Springs." THEIR REUNION is slated for April 11-14 and will include the annual April 12 observance of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's death at the Little White House. It will also coincide with contin- ued efforts to eradicate polio worldwide, something that is get- ting closer and closer to reality, thanks to the international coop- eration or organizations like the CDC. Fulfilling FDR's stated and written vision, the Roosevelt Warm Springs Institute for Rehabilitation is now "a vast establishment with hundreds of people" and "one of the world's best places for 'results,' both to the body and the spirit." It's a state-managed, comprehensive rehabilitation facility, specializ- ing in both medical and voca- tional rehabilitation and home to such things as the International Roosevelt Cup, which matches the world's best wheelchair ath- letes in track, basketball and ten- nis competition; the first Euro- American rehab consortium, benefiting rehabilitation on both sides of the Atlantic; and a chain of outpatient clinics that makes convenient therapy available to people throughout the Atlanta metropolitan area. WHEN FDR first came here in 1924 as an influential New Yorker and former assistant sec- retary of the Navy, it was a resort for the regionally rich and famous, a place that "well knowns" like Henry Clay and John C. Calhoun had even enjoyed before the Civil War. As the story goes, Roosevelt was des- perate for anything that might help him regain the use of his legs, which had been ravaged by the effect of polio three years earlier, and he had heard through a friend about a young man with polio who had enjoyed similar results after exercising over a series of months in the mineral- laden, 88 degree water that flows constantly at over 900 gallons per minute. By 1927, convinced of the curative effect of the aquatic therapy he was undergoing, Roosevelt took two thirds of his personal wealth, purchased the place (over 900 acres) and turned it into a world renowned polio treatment center, a place he would visit 41 times before his death in 1945 ...... a serene place he came while serving as Governor of New york; while run- ning for President four times; while combating the Great Depression; while leading the country through World War II; and while actually planning The United Nations. IN THOSE DAYS it was known as the Warm Springs Foundation and polio patients from all over the country and world found their way to this lit- tle West Georgia train stop at the foot of Pine Mountain (elev. 1400 ft.), the southernmost outcrop- ping of the Appalachian Mountain. Throughout World War II, soldiers who contracted polio in various theaters of the war were also brought here with their own stories to tell. It was home base for The March of Dimes and a growing cadre' of doctors, scientists and philanthropists (not to mention hundreds of therapists), all seek- ing solutions to a disease whose ever-expanding spread has been compared to that of AIDS in our own times. That solution proved to be the Salk Vaccine in 1954, which gradually led the Roosevelt Institute away from polio treat- ment to other types of rehabili- tation. Still, history and healthcare have always mixed well here and that should never be more evi- dent than when these former polio patients gather next spring. For the most part, they will include people in their 50's, 60's, 70's and possibly even 80's, many of whom won't have a better chance to revisit a place that meant so much to themselves and so many like them. It should be an opportuni- ty to rekindle intense feelings among people who have under- gone so much and have so much in common. OBVIOUSLY, reaching all of them after halfa century requires extensive assistance. Records do exist, but none of those from the first half of the 20th Century pos- sess the thoroughness now attain- able via computers and much was also lost in the transition to the computer age. Remember, most were children during their Warm Springs years, so addresses have changed many times and often names or identities are no longer the same. Nevertheless, plans are to reach as many as possible over the next six months. They, their families or friends are asked to call Carolyn Moreland, Director of Continuing Education at the Roosevelt Institute at 706-655-5233 or con- tact her by e-marl at cmmore- land@dhr.state.ga.us. What's needed are names and addressed plus the approximate time they were Warm Springs polio patients. If deceased, their sur- viving family member are encouraged to take part in honor of their late relative's memory. If unable to reach Ms. Moreland at the above number or by e-marl, alumni may call 706- 655-5000, the main number for the Roosevelt Warm Springs Institute for Rehabilitation. Post-polio groups all across the country are being contacted and over 700 former RWS1R polio patients are already on the list.
