Caption: Helen Adams Keller (right, 1880-1968), US deafblind activist, with her teacher Anne Sullivan (1866-1936). Keller, who was left deaf and blind by a childhood illness, was introduced to Anne Sullivan in 1886. They worked together for the next 49 years. Sullivan taught Keller tactile signing and Braille, and in 1904 Keller became the first deafblind person to graduate from a college. She went on to become a world-famous speaker, author and advocate for disability issues. Here, Anne Sullivan is Mrs Macy, having married John A. Macy in 1905, though she later lived with Keller. This photograph is from the Bain News Service, one of the USA's earliest news picture libraries.
