KELLER (Helen, 1880-1968, Deaf & Blind American Writer, Lecturer & Scholar)

Fine Typed Letter Signed to Mr Calhoun, saying that she is “reaching out for your friendly hand in my effort to help the blind who have ability and the will to make something of themselves. It is not surprising in these days of curtailed budgets and lean subscriptions that the handicapped should be the first to suffer. As a result of inadequate support the American Foundation for the Blind is finding it extremely difficult to provide scholarships for sightless applicants, and I am writing to you in their behalf. Experience shows that even the blind most eager for higher education cannot attain it without much practical aid. They are so handicapped throughout life that they cannot shift for themselves. Their only way to forget blindness is through knowledge and work, and the circumstances in which they are placed are so complicated, they easily miss their few chances of usefulness. I went to college myself, and I know the heavy odds against which blind students must fight. Step by step they must prove their ability in a world which often does not believe that they can do anything at all. For this purpose they need a friend.... Try to imagine the cruel disappointment you would feel if you knew you had mind and energy, and could not use them to overcome a harsh fate even partially for want of practical help...”, 1 side A4, American Foundation for the Blind, headed paper, 15 West 16th Street, New York, 28th May
