Description Transcript (24 pages) of interview by Becky B. Lloyd with Jonathan Hughes Horne on February 21, 2010
Abstract Horne (b. 1935) was born in Salt Lake City, Utah. He contracted polio at age 4, and tells what he remembers about getting sick, experiencing nausea and a painful headache. He was treated at home and was immobilized in bed for several days with paralysis in all four limbs. He recalls receiving spinal taps. His father, a physician, arranged for gamma globulin to be shipped into Salt Lake from California and Jonathan received several intrathecal injections. He feels this contributed to his recovery. His house was quarantined and he remembers seeing people cross the street as they neared his house and cross back again once they had passed. He recalls no other specific treatment or therapy, but continually improved until regaining movement in all limbs, with only residual weakness in his leg muscles, which continue to the present. He reports no incidence of recognizable post-polio syndrome. He led an active live and became an orthopedic surgeon operating in the Salt Lake Valley area. Polio Oral History Project.
