NEW YORK TIMES, March 12, 1954
* Jonas Salk
* Polio vaccine success
Near the bottom of the front page is a very historic and early report on the success of the polio vaccine with a two column head; "Lasting Prevention of Polio Reported in Vaccine Tests" and subhead: "Dr. Salk Says Discovery Fights Off All 3 Kinds of Crippling Disease" with the report concluding on page 22. The ftpg. report includes a photo captioned: "Dr. Jonas E. Salk".
This was a very early report of clinical trial successes, and it would be 13 months later that a formal announcement would be made of a definitive polio vaccine being successful. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 44 pages, nice condition.
