About This Item

NY: Delacorte Press, 1969. First Edition, first printing. Wonderful, personal signed presentation from Gallagher on the half-title page: "Tom Curtin- This is as much your book as it is mine. Without you there would have been no book- and no me. How can I thank you? Hugh G. Gallagher." Wow! Gallagher, who contracted polio in 1952 at age 19, was known by many advocates as the drafter of the Architectural Barriers Act of 1968, the nation's first federal disability rights law, which led to the broader accessibility provisions of the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act. When the FDR memorial was being constructed in the late 1990s, Gallagher led the campaign to have the statue of the President at the entrance depict him in his wheelchair at ground level -- to make his true image more accessible to visitors with and without disabilities. Tom Curtin may refer to U.S. District Court Judge John Thomas Curtin, but this is just speculation. Needs more research!. 8vo., black cloth in dust jacket; 338 pages. Foreword by Senator Philip A. Hart.. Very Good (covers nice; contents clean & tight); some edgewear (tiny chips & tears, little creasing top of spine) d/j.
