Helen Keller (June 27, 1880-June 1, 1968) was an American author, activist, and lecturer. Born in Alabama to Captain Arthur H. Keller, a former officer of the Confederate Army and Kate Adams Keller, second cousin of Robert E. Lee, Helen came down with an illness that left her deaf and blind at the age of only nineteen months.

Alexander Graham Bell advised Helens parents to contact the Perkins Institute for the Blind, which assigned 20-year-old Anne Sullivan to become Helens teacher.
