Helen Keller: An Overview June 27, 1880 – June 1, 1968 Helen Keller was born on June 27, 1880 in Tuscumbia, Alabama. Helen’s family farm was named “Ivy Green”. At age 19 months she had scarlet fever or meningitis which left her deaf and blind. In 1886, her mother sent her to Dr. J. Julia Chisolm in Baltimore for advice. Dr. Chisolm put the Kellers in touch with Alexander Graham Bell, and he told them to contact the Perkins Institute for the Blind. The director at Perkins sent Anne Sullivan to the Kellers’ house in March of 1887, when Helen was 7 years old. Sullivan began to teach Helen to communicate by spelling words into her hand. The first word Helen learned, and truly comprehended, was water. Helen attended the Perkins Institute for the Blind in 1888. In 1904 she graduated from Radcliffe College when she was 24 years old. She traveled to 39 different countries, and campaigned for various social causes. In 1920, she helped form the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union). Anne Sullivan stayed with Helen until Sullivan died in 1936. After Sullivan, Polly Thompson was Helen’s next companion. Thompson suffered from a stroke in 1957, and died in 1960. Winnie Corbally was Thompson’s nurse, and she stayed with Helen until she died. Helen died in her sleep on June 1, 1968.
