Description Transcript (31 pages) of interview by Becky B. Lloyd with David Clayton Dunford on May 15, 2010
Abstract Dunford (b.1939) discusses his family and the family business, Dunford Bakery. He contracted polio at age 8 in February 1947. He describes getting sick. He and his two brothers contracted the disease at the same time and were all treated at home. They enlisted the services of Dr. Ted Robinson for a unique treatment method: liquid deprivation and sucrose injections. He describes the treatment. David also had bulbar polio and was unable to talk and swallow. He was fed through a naso-gastric tube for a period of time. He had no paralysis in his legs, but his right arm and upper respiratory functions were affected. He returned to a normal, active life, with a few physical limitations, although not immediately noticeable. He discusses possible post-polio syndrome symptoms he is now experiencing. This interview is part of the Polio Oral History Project. Interviewer: Becky B. Lloyd
