The following link opens a PDF file with brief excerpts from my life review:

The autobiography of Richard Lloyd Daggett

My "life review," or autobiography, was published in May 2010. It is titled Not Just Polio and is available through,, Barnes &, and most online book retailers. It can also be ordered at walk-in book stores and is available as a PDF file from the Polio Survivors Association.

I believe that everyone has a story to tell. Everyone's life is different and interesting. If you haven't already done so, I encourage you to begin telling your own story. Put it on paper, or tell it to a tape recorder. If you would like to share your story with me, or comment on my story, use the E-mail button at the left.

I've enjoyed writing my story. I hope you enjoy reading it.

The link below is to a photograph of my 1959 graduation class. It is a very large PDF file of over 16mb. It will take a very long time to load. I am standing at the far right.
