Description Transcript (33 pages) of interview by Becky B. Lloyd with Dale John Lambert on May 23, 2010
Abstract Lambert (b.1946) was born in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. His family moved shortly thereafter to California. He discusses his family. He contracted polio at age three. He relates what he has been told about getting sick. He was hospitalized in San Diego from early August 1949 to spring 1950. He recalls some hospital memories. While there he received some physical therapy, which continued on an outpatient basis after discharge. He left the hospital with two full-length leg braces that continued up to his torso and two crutches. He credits the March of Dimes for helping with medical expenses; in return, he, his mother and brother helped fundraise for the March of Dimes. He has complete paralysis of his left leg, partial use of his right leg and full use of both arms. He had five or six subsequent surgeries, which he described, after his initial hospitalization. He reports no effects from post-polio syndrome. Mr. Lambert attended public schools. He served a LDS mission in Florida and later graduated from law school. He currently practices law in Salt Lake City, Utah, and is involved in local politics. He is married and has three children. This interview is part of the Polio Oral History Project.
