Helen Keller

Born: Tuscumbia, United States of America

Helen Adams Keller was an author, lecturer, and humanitarian. Keller became blind and deaf at the age of 19 months through a damaging brain fever. She could only communicate through hysterical laughter or violent tantrums. Nevertheless, with the help of her teacher Anne Mansfield Sullivan (1866-1936), Keller learned to read braille. She also learned to write by using a special typewriter. Their early relationship was the subject of The Miracle Worker, a 1960 Pulitzer Prize winning play and 1962 film by William Gibson.

In 1904, Keller graduated with honors from Radcliffe College and began a life of writing, lecturing, and fundraising on behalf of people with disabilities. Her work had an international impact on the lives of people with disabilities. She was born on June 27, 1880 in Tuscumbia, Ala., and she passed away on June 1, 1968.
