"People will look at the ashes of Westerburg and say, "Now there’s a school that self-destructed, not because society didn’t care, but because the school was society." Now that’s deep."

August 25, 1921: FDR is Diagnosed with Polio
On this day in 1921, Dr. Robert Lovett diagnosed 39-year-old Franklin Roosevelt with infantile paralysis, more commonly known as polio. The diagnosis came a few weeks after a fall into icy waters that left him unable to feel parts of his body and hold his own weight.
Although there was no cure for polio at the time, FDR participated in rehabilitation classes and swimming exercises to regain his strength before re-entering politics.
Learn about FDR’s recovery process with this preview clip from Ken Burns’s The Roosevelts.
