Full title : The Man in the Iron Lung: the Frederick B. Snite, Jr., story. The book, The Man in the Iron Lung is about Frederick Snite, Jr. (1910-1954) who spent 18 years in an iron lung. This wonderful book was written by his chief attendant, Leonard C. Hawkins, who became his best friend.


"There was no room for self-pity or bitterness in his life which, apart from almost complete confinement in the respirator, was surprisingly normal. He married Teresa Larkin in 1939, and they had three daughters. . . He became a symbol of the triumph of the spirit over the body. The image of 'The Boiler Kid' was frequently seen in newspapers, magazines, and newsreels nationwide. He published a newsletter entitled, appropriately, Back Talk, and his optimism encouraged countless other polio victims. . . . At his funeral in 1954, at the age of 44, he was mourned by many more than the 1500 who came to say farewell to this remarkable, dauntless young man." [Excerpts from information circular "The Fred B. Snite Family," Snite Museum of Art.] Here is an interesting article and a nice picture of Fred, Teresa, and their three girls.

I probably first read this book in about 1976; it was pretty enthralling then. Dad works for the government, missing microfilm!, spies!, kid staying up late and being a spy himself, and in the end, he is a hero! Whoopee!

Now as an adult, I picture this as Richie from the Dick van Dyke having a Scooby Doo-like adventure.

Thanks to the childrens' department librarians of the world, we can re-read our childhood memories and, perhaps, shudder just a little ;)

Probably the best Aaron Burr biography of read, really getting under the skin of the man and the politician. Thought of as a villain by most, and forgotten by many more, he's shown as a remarkable and effective lawmaker and Vice President, widely respected by his peers. He's also a loving and progressive father in the upbringing and education of his daughter Theodosia. Burr's way was a third way in between the Jeffersonian and Hamiltonian persuasions. While some of his actions are inexcusable, one gains a sympathy for Burr since his more powerful rivals did everything to prevent him from gaining influence on the American political scen… (mere)
