HELEN KELLER WONDERFUL
BLIND GIRL, SEES, HEARS
TAKES IN INAUGURATION
Helen Adams Keller was born in Tuscumbia, Ala, 32 years, 8 months ago. She has been deaf and blind 31 years and 1 month, caused by illness.
Being deaf, after long years of darkness and silence, she can "see and hear through her finger tips," and has learned to speak.
Her phenomenal success is largely due to Miss Anne Sullivan (Mrs. John Macy), who undertook her education 25 years ago, and who is her inseparable companion.
Miss Keller is the author of "The Story of My Life," "Optimism, and Essay," "The World I Live In," and "The Song of the Stone Wall."
