With funding from the NEH, the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) created the Helen Keller Archive, an online digital archive that chronicles Keller’s life through its collection of photographs, letters, speeches, press clippings, audio recordings, film, and other artifacts. Containing approximately 80,000 items, many bequeathed to AFB by Keller herself, the archive is the largest repository of materials about Keller’s life in the world; it is also the first digital archive to be made fully accessible to blind, deaf, deafblind, and visually impaired audiences. As such, the pioneering digital archive is of immeasurable value to both researchers and the public worldwide.
