Description of The Unseen Minority: A Social History of Blindness in the United States: 26. Open Channels
AFB, from its inception, placed an emphasis on publicizing ongoing work for blind and visually impaired persons, particularly on publishing research data. In 1923 AFB took over Outlook for the Blind, which had been established in 1907, and has expanded and developed it in later years [when it eventually became the Journal of Visual Impairment and Blindness]. While Outlook became pointedly professional, the non-AFB Matilda Ziegler Magazine for the Blind, also established in 1907, remained more a general-interest publication. The author also describes other AFB publications through the early 1970s.
