Spina Bifida Series-Disabled Legend Snr. Hank Williams

Snr. Hank Williams, Hiram King Williams was born in 1923, in the small unincorporated town of Mount Olive, Georgiana, Alabama. He was named after Hiram I of Tyre, but his name was misspelled as “Hiriam” on his birth certificate. He was born with a mild undiagnosed case of spina bifida occulta, a disorder of the spinal column, which gave him life long pain, a factor in his later abuse of alcohol and drugs. Hank had tried to wrestle down his drinking problem, but career pressures, marital problems, and crippling spinal pain all contributed to make the binges more frequent during 1951. In December he agreed to be operated on, although the operation was not a success.
