By Susan Richards Shreve. Just after her eleventh birthday in 1950 and at the height of the frightening childhood polio epidemic, Shreve was sent to the sanitarium at Warm Springs, Georgia. It was a place famously founded by FDR. During Shreve’s stay at Warm Springs, the Salk vaccine was discovered; Shreve is one of the last generation of Americans to have survived childhood polio.
