ACTIVIST BORN ON THIS DAY IN 1880



Helen Adams Keller
(June 27, 1880 – June 1, 1968)

Helen Keller, though deaf and blind, became a women’s suffragist and
political activist. She published twelve books and a number of articles
over the coarse of her life.

She contracted a disease when she was nineteen months old (likely
scarlet fever or meningitis) that left her blind and deaf. As a young
child, she developed a repertoire of physical signs which she used
to communicate with her parents and with the young daughter of the
Keller family’s cook.

Helen Keller become widely known through the dramatic depictions of 
a 1959 play and the 1962 film The Miracle Worker.
