Abstract: 

This collection spans the period from Anne Sullivan’s arrival in Tuscumbia, Alabama in 1887 through her studies at the Cambridge School for Young Ladies under the supervision of Arthur Gilman in 1896, and her entrance to Radcliffe College in 1899. Included are correspondence, writings and journals, exam and academic materials, clippings, and publications. Contains some of the earliest letters from Helen Keller beginning in 1887 to Michael Anagnos and others, correspondence to and from Anne Sullivan and other member of the Keller family, and a large collection of Arthur Gilman correspondence. Gilman’s correspondence includes hundreds of letter from William Wade, Keller’s benefactor, in addition to correspondence to and from heads of schools and organizations for the blind and deaf, and other prominent individuals, including Edward E. Allen, Thomas Humason, Thomas Gallaudet and Alexander Graham Bell. The collection covers a concern related to Helen Keller’s purported overwork and exhaustion, and an attempt by Gilman to have Anne Sullivan separated from Keller. The collection also contains journal entries Keller may have composed while at the Wright-Humason School for the Deaf and materials related to Keller’s Radcliffe College entrance exams.
