“Helen Keller was one of the most famous social activists of the 20th century, and a notable campaigner in disability rights.” Jim Fruchterman, CEO of @Benetech says, “I am thrilled that it will now be far easier for all people, including blind people, to dig in to the original documents and artifacts of this famous leader.”
Exploring the archive is fascinating, and turns up controversial material still relevant today. One of the documents that surfaced quickly in Jim’s explorations was the Freedom of Information Act request to the FBI for information about Helen Keller. He notes, “With today’s surveillance debates, it’s interesting to find out that the FBI was tracking Keller because of her contacts with socialist activists.”
