Subject: Hugh Gallagher

Years ago I picked up a copy of  Hugh Gallagher's book on FDR's paralysis in my library and it has proven to be one of the most important books that I have ever read. 

I recently ordered it from for my son-in-law (a pediatrician) and came across Gallagher's biography:  Blackbird Fly Away.  After reading this --- in one day --- I have been searching for everything and anything that I can find out about this remarkable man.  

I don't know if anyone who isn't a religious fundamentalist has worked this out, but I am  thinking about how Gallagher's disability and his ability to write about it with a deep and humble honesty, had a powerfully positive impact on the lives of others.  And also how much he probably would have traded all of this if he could magically be restored to his pre-polio health.

I am writing to tell you that I was very moved by your tribute in Ralph. 

Thank you very much.
