    On this day, March 26, 1953, Dr. Jonas Salk announced his polio vaccine. Two years later, the vaccine was released nationally in the US. Major funding for Salk's research came from the March of Dimes Foundation, which was set up by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. 58,000 cases of polio were reported in 1952; 3,145 people had died from it in that year.
