Abstract:
In 1880, Helen Keller was born in Tuscumbia, Alabama, and as a nineteen month old child, she contracted a disease that left her deaf and blind. Her parents hired Miss Anne Sullivan in 1887, and she taught Helen to finger spell. Helen graduated from Radcliffe College in 1904. Miss Keller and Mrs. Anne Sullivan Macy spoke at East Carolina Teachers Training School on May 1, 1916. Mrs. Anne Sullivan Macy began by telling about Helen’s life. Helen then spoke to the crowd, and at one point, catching the smell of a lily, had Mrs. Macy find it for her and caressed it. The audience asked Helen questions after her speech. She won the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1964, and was elected to the Women’s Hall of Fame in 1965. She also raised money for the American Foundation for the Blind and campaigned to improve the living and working conditions for the blind. “The Unconquered,” a documentary film about Helen Keller’s life, was created in 1953. In 1957, a live drama television play about her life entitled “The Miracle Worker,” was first performed.
