Detailed Description of the Collection


Series 5: Scrapbooks
1915 - 1967
33 Boxes

These scrapbooks were donated to AFB by Rebecca Mack. Helen Keller met Rebecca Mack circa 1917. Over the years Mack, a fan of Keller's, accumulated a library of Helen Keller books and ephemera. This series is comprised of sixty-four composition-book-size scrapbooks. The materials span the years 1915 to 1967 and are filled with items related to Keller and materials on guide dogs that are unrelated to Helen Keller.
