Helen Keller Attends Radcliffe College

In 1896 Helen enrolled in the Cambridge School for Young Ladies, and in 1900 she became the the first deafblind person to ever be enrolled at an institution of higher learning, when she was accepted at Radcliffe College. In 1904 she received her B.A. cum laude.  All this time Anne Sullivan remained with Helen as her teacher and companion.

While at Radcliffe, Helen wrote The Story of My Life, in 1903. Today, her autobiography is available in more than 50 languages.

More to come...
