American Foundation for the Blind (AFB)-Helen Keller Archival Letters Collection. The Helen Keller Papers, which constitute the majority of the archival repository, are fascinating in scope and content. The collection contains an impressive array of items including acknowledgement cards Miss Keller sent to AFB donors, manuscripts of the many plays and films about Miss Keller's life, and original draft copies of Miss Keller's most famous published and unpublished writings. During Miss Keller's lifetime, she not only met, but often formed lasting friendships with the great national and international personalities of her day, from Alexander Graham Bell to Woodrow Wilson. Much of her correspondence with these famous people is included in this collection.
