Sunday's Obituary - Deborah E. Myers - Another Newfield NY Polio Victim

Deborah E. Myers
Polio Victim

Earlier this week the Tompkins County Historian, Carol Kammen, informed me that BeechTree nursing home in Ithaca, formerly the Reconstruction Home, began in 1920 as a hospital for children with polio.  She thought they might have information on the 1950s era vaccinations. Alas, after talking with the gentleman who recently went through the stored files before they were donated to the History Center in Ithaca said he saw nothing in their files related to the vaccines.
