Editor's Page — JVIB Extract

Since Editor's Pages do not have abstracts, we have provided an extract of the beginning of the text.

Extract: With no planning or specific design on my part, I have been blessed to have served as editor in chief of Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness (JVIB) during some major milestones. The year 2006 marked the 100th volume year of JVIB and its predecessors, Outlook for the Blind and New Outlook for the Blind./i> Three years later, I still think about the 100 years of literature that I had the pleasure of reviewing during my own preparation for the centennial, when I had the opportunity to read first-hand accounts of many of the incredible events that had occurred over the course of the journal's history. With this January 2009 issue, I again have the chance to serve the journal during a major event in the history of services for people who are blind or visually impaired. If you asked any random stranger walking down the street to list the major symbols of blindness, I believe that most people would say braille and the white cane. The year 2009 features a significant event for the first of these symbols of our field: the 200th birthday of Louis Braille, the man responsible for creating the tactile reading system that bears his name.
