Polio Strikes Area Again
Polio Area Strikes Again
By ARUNDEL H. KEANE Managing Editor The Redwood Journal, Feb 3, 1954
Almost as if to punctuate the current appeal for the March of Dimes poliomyelitis has again visited Mendocino county—for the third time this year—and in its deadliest form. Bulbar polio has stricken Mrs. Joy Waugh, 32, wife of John Waugh, Boonville district superintendent of schools, and today she lies beneath an oxygen tent in Sonoma hospital. There is no Joy in the Waugh family today and no joy in the heart of her popular 44-year-old husband and father of her infant son and daughter - one three years of age and the other 20 months. He saw her sped away by an emergency ambulance driven by James Johnson, Boonville, at 10 o'clock yesterday morning when her physician. Dr. Neely Bradford; former county hospital superintendent now practicing in the Anderson Valley community, decreed that she must have emergency care immediately. Ironically enough, she was visited with the terrible disease on the same day that mothers were making their porch-light march in many communities on homes for funds to aid in the care of just such victims.
