From the library of Basil O'Connor with his bookplate on the front pastedown and with the library stamp of his second wife, Hazel Royall, on the verso of the front endpaper.
Basil O'Connor [1892-1972] was an American lawyer. In 1919, he founded his own law firm in New York City, where he met Franklin D. Roosevelt in the early 1920s and became his legal advisor. Roosevelt, who contracted polio in 1921, partnered with O'Connor to found the Georgia Warm Springs Foundation. O'Connor succeeded Roosevelt as President of the Foundation in 1928. Ten years later the two men cofounded the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis, which notably initiated an entirely new way of raising money with its radio campaign called "The March of Dimes". O'Connor's second wife, Hazel Royall, was a therapist at Warm Springs.
