Albert B. Sabin Archives


Dr. Albert B. Sabin, developer of the oral poliovirus vaccine, spent the majority of his career at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and the Children's Hospital Research Foundation. His vaccine helped to virtually eliminate polio around the world.

In 1993, the Henry R. Winkler Center received this manuscript collection from Mrs. Heloisa Sabin. A 1995 grant from the John Hauck Foundation established the Hauck Center for the Albert B. Sabin Archives.

In 2010, the Winkler Center received a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to digitize correspondence and photographs in the collection. This "We the People" project is an initiative to encourage and strengthen the teaching, study, and understanding of American history and culture through the support of projects that explore significant events and themes in our nation's history and culture and that advance knowledge of the principles that define America.
