The American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) is deeply grateful to our funders, who have enabled us to preserve the largest repository of historical materials about and by Helen Keller, and to make this unique collection fully accessible to a global audience.
In particular we wish to thank the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) for awarding AFB a Humanities Collections and Reference Resources grant to digitize and disseminate this unique archive. NEH funding was indispensable in making this project possible.
Furthermore, we are indebted to American Express for becoming our founding corporate sponsor.
