American Printing House explores the Helen Keller archives

by The 100 Companies

What started in 1854 as a blind man raising funds to print Paradise Lost in raised lettering, quickly gained momentum, becoming the American Printing House for the Blind (APH) in 1857.  Based in Louisville, the not-for-profit has produced millions of materials for the visually impaired.

This fall, APH will host a special symposium highlighting the impact of Helen Keller Sept. 17-18. The two-day event will showcase keynote speakers and archival documents from Keller’s 40-year employment with the American Foundation for the Blind (AFB).

That collection, the Helen Keller Archive, was transferred from AFB offices in New York to the APH in 2009.
