- Salk was an American medical pioneer, a virologist and researcher who discovered and developed the first successful polio vaccine in the mid-1950s -- one of the greatest medical advances of the 20th century; Sabin was a Russian-born American medical researcher who developed an oral polio vaccine around the same time as Salk's achievement. Two items: First, a Salk TNS, 1p, 8½" X 11", San Diego, CA, 1990 November 13. Addressed to John Stanger. Near fine. Faint mailing folds. On letterhead of "The Salk Institute," Salk muses: "When in my teens I learned that it was important to find a purpose in life and to pursue it. In the course of my pursuit I learned of the wisdom taught by that lesson." Usual small but bold signature in black fineline. Second, a Sabin ANS, 1p, 8½" X 4", n.p., 1991 February 14. Near fine. Faint mailing folds. Wonderful sentiment on a favorite book, boldly penned in black fineline: "I have read many books in my 84 years that had an impact on my career and philosophy of life -- but not until I began reading and re-reading the book named below did I realize how ignorant I was all my life: 'THE DISCOVERERS: A History of Man's Search to Know His World and Himself,' by Daniel J. Boorstin (former Librarian of Congress)." Handsome full signature
