Description of The Unseen Minority: A Social History of Blindness in the United States: 12. A Share in the General Welfare

The traditional view that blind and visually impaired persons need special protections exists in continual tension with the goal of inclusion in society in general. The 1935 Social Security Act leaned toward the former. The author describes subsequent amendments and other legislative efforts, including the 1943 Vocational Rehabilitation Act and 1946 Public Welfare Act.
