Expanding possibilities for people with vision loss

Helen Keller Expert

During her life, Helen Keller was one of the world's great heroes. A passionate and determined advocate for other people with disabilities, Helen Keller began to work with the American Foundation for the Blind in 1924. She served as a spokesperson and ambassador for the Foundation until her death in 1968. She selected AFB as the repository for her papers and memorabilia, and under the terms of her will bequeathed those materials to the Foundation. The Helen Keller Archives at AFB's national headquarters in New York City contain a wealth of photographs, papers, artifacts, and books from her library.
