Description Transcript (41 pages) of interview by Becky B. Lloyd with Christopher Lynn Hill on May 15, 2010
Abstract Hill (b. 1947) was born in Los Angeles, California. He discusses his family and neighborhood. He contracted polio in September 1953 at the age of five. He was hospitalized and was in an iron lung for a period of time. He relates what he remembers of getting sick and his hospital experiences. He received hot pack treatments and some physical therapy. He talks about being ostracized in the neighborhood and at school due to his illness. He was fitted with and used two leg braces (to the upper thigh) and two crutches for a number of years. Later he regained some use of his legs and was fitted with high top heavy duty boots for support. He started to develop symptoms of post-polio syndrome in approximately 2000. He talks about his difficulties with the onset and progression of this condition. He has been instrumental in developing an online polio support group and is involved with various disability groups. Mr. Hill received his college degree and worked in aerospace, water quality control and school district maintenance until taking medical retirement in 2006. This interview is part of the Polio Oral History Project. Interviewer: Becky Lloyd
