HELEN KELLER LETTER TO MR. GRAVES MARCH 26, 1946
This item is a typed letter from Helen Keller of New York asking for the financial
support of the Committee on the Deaf-Blind of America (perhaps later the American Foundation
for the Blind) to a “Mr. Graves,” perhaps Paul G. Graves of Rosedale, the Graves family home in
Lynchburg, Virginia.

HELEN ADAMS KELLER (1880-1968)
Helen Adams Keller was born 27 June 1880 in Tuscumbia, Alabama, the daughter of
Arthur H. Keller and Kate Adams. In her lifetime, she was an author, a political activist, and
lecturer. She was the first deaf-blind person to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree from Radcliffe
College. She died 1 June 1968 in Easton, Connecticut and is buried at the Washington National
Cathedral in Washington, D.C.
