Roald Dalh, author of books such as James and the Giant Peach and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, had a daughter who died of measles encephalitis in the 1960s. There was no vaccine at the time. In the late '80s, not long after a vaccine was discovered, he wrote a letter to the public urging parents to immunize their children. Parents today seem naive about the real dangers of contracting measles.
