Meeting Date

Pintlala Historical Association Meeting

PHA will meet on Sunday, October 15 at 2:30 p.m., Pintlala Baptist Church Fellowship Hall

Dr. Keith Krawczynski will present a program on the polio epidemic in Montgomery County in the 1950s.  His talk will be based on his article, “Operation Needle: the 1953 Polio Epidemic in Montgomery County,” published in Alabama Heritage Magazine, Summer 2023 issue.

Dr. Krawczyski currently holds the positions of Distinguished Research Professor, Distinguished Teaching Professor and Honors Professor of History at Auburn University Montgomery where he teaches American History and directs the University’s Oral History Initiative.

Many of our PHA members surely have memories of polio existing in Pintlala. Dr. Krawczynski is interested in your memories as he has plans to enlarge the magazine article into a book on the same topic.


Please attend this interesting program!
