Abstract

Neurological disease has had a profound effect on history as with the fatal stroke of Franklin D. Roosevelt. Roosevelt and two of his vice presidents, Harry Truman, and Henry Wallace also suffered from acquired paralytic disorders. The sum total of the neurological problems of these three statesmen had a significant effect on their careers, and the course of history.
