Anne's Final Years (1930-1936) and Her Legacy
National Women's Hall of Fame

In the fall of 2003, Anne Sullivan Macy was inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame in Seneca Falls, New York, an organization that honors in perpetuity women "whose contributions...have been the greatest value for the development of their country."

Regina Genwright, who was then the Director of the AFB Information Center, received this award on Anne's behalf. Regina spoke of Anne's accomplishments when she said:

I am thrilled to accept this award on behalf of a woman who was instrumental in breaking down the educational barriers for people who are deaf, blind and visually impaired and whose teaching practices are still very much in use today. Like all good teachers Anne's sole aim was to provide her student with the tools to think clearly and independently.
