LEIDE-TEDESCO Signature Collectiion
Albert B. Sabin (1906-1993) – Sometime between 1930-1932 Albert Sabin and Manoah Leide-Tedesco
met and became great friends. Between 1934 and 1936 alone
Sabin wrote 30 letters addressed
to “My Dear Leide”. It appears that Leide introduced Albert to his first wife Sylvia. However the friendship appeared to subside
in later years
although Sabin asked his old friend to accompany him to Italy to receive a science award. The collection includes more than 50 items connected with Albert B. Sabin
discoverer of the polio vaccine.
