Description of The Unseen Minority: A Social History of Blindness in the United States: 17. The New Breed
In World War II, lessons from the first war, as well as the more extensive educational backgrounds of those blinded during this war, led to greater success in establishing relief programs. The author discusses the role of the U.S. Veterans Administration during and after the war, and AFB’s contribution. The long cane and braille watch programs were among the new developments.
