Description Transcript (48 pages) of a phone interview by Becky B. Lloyd with Jay Kohler in New Hartford, Connecticut, on July 17, 2011
Abstract Kohler (b. 1944) was born in Pratt Kansas. He grew up in Rochester, New York, where he contracted polio at the age of four and a half. He describes getting sick. He was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, New York, where he remained for more than three months. He was placed in an iron lung, and relates his memories of his time and treatment there. The polio mainly affected his lungs and his left side. He tells of the types of physical therapy used to treat him in the hospital. He was discharged from the hospital to a convalescent home, where he remained for a period of less than one year, while they continued with intensive physical therapy. His physical therapy continued once he returned home. Mr. Kohler led a very active life with no immediately noticeable residual effects of polio, until the onset of post polio syndrome, which he describes. Mr. Kohler's career has been as an educator and entrepreneur. Interview is part of the Polio Oral History Project. Interviewer: Becky B. Lloyd
