Pages from the 1888-1900 scrapbook on blindness.

Digitized scrapbooks on blindness

Collection of clippings scrapbooks on the topic of blindness, originally labeled "miscellaneous." The collection spans 1888-1958.


Our goal is provide resources that are accessible to all

The blindness scrapbooks have been digitized and made available on the Internet Archive website, which utilizes optical character recognition (OCR) and downloadable file formats, including Daisy, to provide access to users who are blind and visually impaired. We acknowledge that OCR is prone to errors, and cannot recognize graphics or handwritten text, thus creating barriers to these materials. It is our intention that by providing the materials as is, the resource is findable online to all. If any of Perkins Archives resources accessed online aren’t accessible in part or in whole, to a user because of a disability, we will create an accessible version upon request.
