Description Transcript (24 pages) of interview by Becky B. Lloyd with Marlin Nile Shields on September 17, 2009
Abstract Shields (b. 1933) discusses his childhood and schooling growing up in a Utah farming community. He attended Utah State University in Logan, Utah, on an athletic scholarship, majoring in physical therapy. He graduated from USU in 1956 and completed a one-year advanced physical therapy certification program at Stanford University. He describes his training and work with polio patients and provides detailed descriptions of patients, their treatment and outcomes. He describes a breathing technique taught to patients called "glossopharyngeal breathing". He discusses the treatment course of a couple of specific patients he worked with at Stanford, who later returned to Salt Lake, where he continued treatment throughout their lives. Mr. Shields returned to Salt Lake and worked as a physical therapist for the University of Utah and later Intermountain HealthCare in both clinical and administrative duties.
