  1. I’m interested in the cane. Did he have trouble balancing at that height? Or was it to take some of the weight off of his feet?

  2. Sadly he died from shoes that were too tight. It rubbed blisters into his feet and it got infected. Because of his medication condition his immune was very low. Nowadays they probably could have done something though

  3. He and my mother went to the same school in Alton , Illinois.
    She said that his belt buckle scrapped a place high up on the wall in the stairway when he navigated between classes.
    He tried to not be in other students way.

  4. He was going to die young because of his pituitary gland in his head being unchecked & out of control. Medical science & procedures weren’t available yet. Without me looking back at his history… I remember watching a YouTube video of him. He died even younger than expected, due to an uncontrollable foot infection caused by his shoe. 1 foot, 1 shoe. Great video

  5. My grandmother met him in the late 1930s, the school took all the kids to see him at the local train station in Payette, ID. (SW ID…on the border with Oregon) all the kids brought loose change for him. Helped cover his expenses as he went school to school. She said he was very friendly and intelligent.
