(33294) Helen Keller, Henry Ford, 1916

Helen Keller--pacifist, socialist, advocate for the disabled, and I.W.W. member--"listens" to Henry Ford speak during a 1916 visit to Detroit. The two found common cause in their pre-World War I peace efforts and Henry Ford's work in accommodating disabled workers in his factories. Also in view are E.G. Pipp and Anne Sullivan.
