Helen Keller (American author and educator) Wiki, Bio, Family, Height, Weight, Age & More

Helen Keller, an American author and educator, was born on June 27, 1880, in Tuscumbia, Alabama, and passed away on June 1, 1968, in Westport, Connecticut. Despite being blind and deaf, she achieved remarkable educational feats, symbolizing the potential of individuals with disabilities.

Keller lost her sight and hearing at 19 months old, likely due to scarlet fever. When she was six, Alexander Graham Bell examined her and recommended Anne Sullivan, a 20-year-old instructor from the Perkins Institution for the Blind in Boston, as her teacher. Sullivan’s groundbreaking teaching methods greatly aided Keller, and she remained her lifelong companion and educator until her death in October 1936.

Keller’s education involved communicating through finger signals on her palm, reading raised words on cardboard, and forming sentences. She learned Braille at the Perkins Institution from 1888 to 1890. Her learning journey included speech training with Sarah Fuller of the Horace Mann School for the Deaf and lip-reading by feeling the speaker’s lips and throat. Keller attended the Wright-Humason School for the Deaf and the Cambridge School for Young Ladies before graduating cum laude from Radcliffe College in 1904. Her life story is an inspiring testament to overcoming adversity with resilience and innovative education.
