Description:
"America's Most Beloved Lady" Born at "Ivy Green" in Tuscumbia, Ala. on June 27, 1880, the daughter of Captain Arthur M. and Kate Adams Keller. While normal at birth, an illness during babyhood left her bereft of sight and hearing. When she was nearly 7, Anne Sullivan was brought from Perkins Institute in Boston to be her teacher. Helen Keller's progress and achievements since then have become world renowned. A movie of her life, "The Miracle Worker" won 1963 Academy Awards. The play is performed live each week-end at Ivy Green during the summer. (This picture on card was taken during a visit to Ivy Green and also shows Miss Polly Thomson, who was an indispensable aid to Helen Keller.)

On 28th Nov., 1904, an amicable arrangement was come to by which both Associations were amalgamated. Mr. Freer deserves great credit for bringing about a state of matters which will greatly add to the number and influence of the IOGT
