Unusual Pictures Of Uncommon People



The young woman, above, feeding the swan, first made the acquaintance of Alexander Graham Bell when her parents asked him to recommend a tutor for her. Thereafter, she and the great inventor maintained a lifelong friendship and when she wrote her autobiography, "The Story Of My Life", she dedicated the book to him.

The teacher he recommended was Annie Sullivan and the young woman above is her student, Helen Keller.
