This website reflects my personal and academic interest in the history of polio. I am a Lecturer in Modern American History at the University of Bristol where I research and teach the history of American public health and medicine.

I have cataloged a number of sources related to polio and it is my objective to share this knowledge with other scholars and the public. The primarily purpose of this website is to provide information about the history of polio, as well as links to recent news about post-polio syndrome and the international polio eradication campaign.

I hope that visitors will not only use this site as a resource, but also contribute to its growth by offering suggestions or by sending links to new publications.
