Helen Keller’s transformation from a wild, deaf-blind and mute child into a world-recognized force of nature astounded the world. Annie Sullivan was Helen’s teacher and, for nearly fifty years, her companion. Annie’s transformation—from a nearly blind, unwanted child abandoned in a Massachusetts poorhouse to a celebrated miracle worker—is less known. Annie Sullivan, as a teacher and as a person, inspires us. This lecture tells her dramatic story.
