The Woman in the Teacher: A Biography of Anne Sullivan Macy

Though widely known as the worker of educational miracles in the life of the deaf-blind child Helen Keller, Anne Sullivan Macy remains an obscured historical figure. With this funding I intend to complete research and begin drafting a book-length biographical study of the famed educator. The increasingly extensive integration of people with disabilities into education, the workplace, and the public world make this project significant. Themes to be examined include Macy’s life-long efforts to shape her life, her complex relationship to her own disability, her educational methods, the professional opportunities available to women of her class and generation, and the vital relationship between the student Helen Keller and teacher Anne Sullivan Macy.
