PORTER, Cole (Albert) [1891-1964] -- American composer and songwriter
In 1937 he had a horse riding accident in which he fractured both legs.
He became depressed over his health, especially when one of his legs had to be amputated.
The many operations on his crushed legs,
left him in chronic pain for the rest of his life.
He was one of the first people upon whom a new treatment for depression, electric shock therapy, was used.
