Wordless Wednesday - March of Dimes Ad 1951

Morse Chain, The Echo,  Nov-Dec 1951

A few weeks ago I posted a story about the quarantine of Ithaca, New York due to the 1916 infantile poliomyelitis epidemic. The disease became prevalent again in the late 1940s and early 1950s, leading to the inoculation of the Salk vaccine to millions of children. The March of Dimes campaign was very successful.
