Place:
Kokomo (Ind.)
Scope and Contents:
Color portrait of Ryan White on trading card, from a series of AIDS Awareness cards.
Arrangement:
Box No. 11.
Biographical / Historical:
One of those personalities depicted is Ryan White, a young man with hemophilia. Born in Kokomo, Indiana in 1971, White caught HIV through contaminated blood products. He was diagnosed with AIDS in 1985. He became a vocal and visible symbol of AIDS. Through his illness he became friends with Elton John and Michael Jackson, among others. He died of AIDS in 1990. The Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency (CARE) Act of 1990 was named for him. On verso: "He was taunted and ostracized at school and was finally expelled. Neighbors pelted the Whites' car, and a bullet was fired into their home. Fleeing Kokomo, the family moved to nearby Cicero, where they were welcomed, and Ryan attended school for the rest of his short life."
