Located in the National Center for Bioethics in Research and Health Care complex, THE LEGACY MUSEUM (formerly the Infantile Paralysis Hospital) was initiated under the leadership of Dr. Benjamin F. Payton and the Legacy Committee for the Apology of the United States Public Health Service Untreated Syphilis Study in the Negro Male in Macon County, Alabama, 1932-1972.
