William Rounds was diagnosed in 1923, and was diagnosed in the same year (only 2 years after insulin was discovered). The last I heard about him, he was alive and well in 2009. He was T1 for 86 years in that year. He was one of eleven interviewed who had lived for 60+ years with T1D. I was one of the eleven. The stories were published in Oct, 2008 in the Diabetes Forecast. That was the month that the Diabetes Forecast celebrated its 60’th anniversary.
