Upon Dr. Sabin’s death in 1993, his wife Heloisa donated to the University of Cincinnati 400 feet of Dr. Sabin’s correspondence, laboratory materials, manuscripts, awards, medals, and numerous other documents pertaining to his career and
medical research. His papers record both the development and testing of the oral polio vaccine, and the growth of virology as a discipline.
