Background

From the :

Kenny Therapist Highly-Trained
Aide to Doctor in Polio Cases
 

     MINNEAPOLIS, MINN.--Because acute polio patients are very sick people who require regular care, in addition to the special techniques of the Kenny treatment, the Kenny Therapist is primarily a highly-skilled assistant to the physician.
     The Sister Elizabeth Kenny Foundation carefully selects registered nurses and physical therapists to be trained as Kenny Therapists.  Under scholarship arrangements, candidates are trained at Elizabeth Kenny Institute in Minneapolis, the Foundation's international training center.
     Students serve through two periods of polio incidence during their courses, which include classroom instruction and work with victims of the disease.  Before receiving a Kenny certificate, the trainee is given opportunity to demonstrate ability to manage polio cases from admission to final discharge.
     A corps of over 100 Kenny Therapists already has been trained to administer the full Kenny treatment as originated by the late Sister Elizabeth Kenny, Australian nurse.
     Annual public appeals provide funds that make it possible for the Kenny Foundation to train more urgently needed Kenny Therapists, and to carry on other phases of its program.  These include sponsorship of research and medical seminars.
     As the Kenny Foundation trains additional Kenny Therapists, so, too, will benefits to polio victims multiply.  The Kenny method is generally accepted as the basis for the best treatment offered polio patients anywhere in the world.


And from the :

STAR ENTERTAINERS SUPPORT

KENNY POLIO FUND CAMPAIGN

     MINNEAPOLIS, MINN.--Radio, stage, screen and TV personalities supporting the 1954 nation-wide polio fund appeal of the Sister Elizabeth Kenny Foundation on a volunteer basis comprise a virtual "Who's Who in the Entertainment Field."

     Marvin L. Kline, national executive director, announced the roster of top-notch entertainers who contributed their time and talent in this year's effort to aid the Kenny Foundation to raise funds to carry on its program to prevent polio crippling.     "Your Rhythm Revue," a 15-minute transcribed musical variety radio series, stars Eddie Fisher, Perry Como, George Shearing, Lena Horne, The Four Lads, Nat "King" Cole, Duke Ellington, Bobby Hackett, Johnny Desmond, Patti Page, Liberace, Hugo Winterhalter and Dennis Day.     Featured in "On Stage," a series of five-minute transcribed radio dramatic readings, are Edward G. Robinson, Henry Fonda, Jean Hersholt, Ronald Colman, Joseph Cotten, Lloyd Nolan and Charles Coburn.     Being seen in "TV Spots on Film," one-minute appeals, are John Cameron Swayze, John Daly, Rosalind Russell, Burl Ives, Warren Hull, Kim Hunter, Art Carney and Danny Thomas.     "Funds which these entertainers are helping to raise will aid the Kenny foundation to provide the Kenny treatment to polio patients, regardless of race, color, creed or financial circumstances," Mr. Kline said.     "The contributions also will assist the Kenny Foundation to train additional Kenny Therapists, finance medical research, sponsor medical seminars and furnish Kenny Therapists on an emergency basis in areas where the incidence of polio is high."

Notes on Provenances:

The most helpful provenances were the log of the radioGOLDINdex (Your Rhythm Revue) and newspaper listings.


What you see here, is what you get. Complete transparency. We have no 'credentials' whatsoever--in any way, shape, or form--in the 'otr community'--none. But here's how we did it--for better or worse. Here's how you can build on it yourselves--hopefully for the better. Here are the breadcrumbs--just follow the trail a bit further if you wish. No hobbled downloads. No misdirection. No posturing about our 'credentials.' No misrepresentations. No strings attached. We point you in the right direction and you're free to expand on it, extend it, use it however it best advances your efforts.

We ask one thing and one thing only--if you employ what we publish, attribute it, before we cite you on it.

We continue to provide honest research into these wonderful Golden Age Radio programs simply because we love to do it. If you feel that we've provided you with useful information or saved you some valuable time regarding this log--and you'd like to help us even further--you can help us keep going. Please consider a small donation here:

We don't pronounce our Golden Age Radio research as 'certified' anything. By the very definition, research is imperfect. We simply tell the truth. As is our continuing practice, we provide our fully provenanced research results--to the extent possible--right here on the page, for any of our peers to review--or refute--as the case may be. If you take issue with any of our findings, you're welcome to cite any better verifiable source(s) and we'll immediately review them and update our findings accordingly. As more verifiable provenances surface, we'll continue to update the following series log, as appropriate.

All rights reserved by their respective sources. Article and log copyright 2009 The Digital Deli Online--all rights reserved. Any failure to attribute the results of this copywritten work will be rigorously pursued.

[Date, title, and episode column annotations in
red refer to either details we have yet to fully provenance or other unverifiable information as of this writing. Red highlights in the text of the 'Notes' columns refer to information upon which we relied in citing dates, date or time changes, or titles.]
