Helen Keller: Later in Life
By Erin Horner
  

1     After she graduated from Radcliffe College, Helen Keller decided that she would devote her life to helping others who were blind. She wrote magazine articles and books. She also gave speeches. She became one of the most popular speakers in America. She and Anne Sullivan traveled around the country. They spoke to many different people. In 1920, Helen and Anne began a new adventure. They created a vaudeville act. This entertaining show earned them a lot of money, sometimes as much as $2,000 per week!
 
2     When Helen was in her mid-forties, she became even more of a crusader for the blind. She joined the staff of the American Foundation for the Blind. She was a great fund-raiser for the group. Many famous people were willing to donate to the organization because Helen's story was so inspiring. Henry Ford and John D. Rockefeller, two of the wealthiest men at that time, gave to the foundation.
