Our War with Polio [Dumb Box 09]

In 1948 my oldest brother contracted polio.  Like a lot of survivors, he became a driven personality, extremely hard-working and successful, highly motivated––he was one of the first from our high school to go to college, certainly the only at that time to attend Harvard.  What I didn't understand until many years later was the cost on the others in the family.
