Frankin D. Roosevelt arrived for his first visit in Warm Springs, Georgia. He was searching for a cure for the paralysis left after a polio attack three years earlier. While he never found a cure, he did find what he would come to regard as his "second home," and ultimately established a haven for rehabilitating polio (and from other diseases or injuries) patients in Warm Springs. His experiences with his neighbors there and in the surrounding (very attractive, but also very poor) countryside helped formulate many of his New Deal ideas a decade later.
