Social Reformer, Civil Rights Activist. After losing her sight and hearing when only 19 months old, Helen Keller would learn to read and write with the help of Anne Sullivan of the Perkins Institute for the Blind; this extraordinary process was later immortalized in William Gibson's 1959 play "The Miracle Worker." Keller graduated from Radcliffe College with honors in 1904, wrote several books, and became a ceaseless advocate for a number of causes and organizations, including both pacifist and veterans' groups, the American Foundation for the Blind, and the International Workers of the World.
