Opened in 1880 by Perkins’ second director, Michael Anagnos, the Blindiana Library has since collected one of the most comprehensive collections on the nonmedical aspects of blindness and deafblindness. In 1967, the research library became its own entity and adopted the name of renowned social psychologist Samuel P. Hayes. It is likely that the Perkins Pamphlet collection was originally acquired by the Samuel P. Hayes Research Library before being relocated to the Perkins Archives.
