Helen Keller (1880-1968) lost her sight and hearing as a young child due to illness, but overcame these challenges and went on to become the twentieth century's best known advocate for people with disabilities. Through her writing, lectures, and work with various organizations, Keller focused public attention on issues affecting the handicapped. She was also successful in making Braille the standard for printed communication with the blind. She had a lifelong relationship with the American Foundation for the Blind, and was instrumental in the Lions Club International's devotion to the blind and blindness prevention.
