Well-done medical social history with coverage of polio's political links to FDR and Warm Springs, the raging rivalry between Salk and Sabin (and the live vs. killed virus vaccine), institutionalized children as test subjects, the key role of women researchers in the labs and ultimately, the invention of all the tools of big-time fund raising by the March of Dimes
