Pemberton Avenue school for the deaf

Alexander Graham Bell once wrote, "recognition of my work for and interest in the education of the deaf has always been more pleasing to me than even recognition of my work with the telephone."

Bell taught at several schools for the deaf. In the picture above you can see him on the far right on the top row.

When the parents of Helen Keller were looking for help for their young deaf and blind daughter, they contacted Alexander Graham Bell. He arranged for Anne Sullivan to be her teacher. Helen and Mr. Bell became lifelong friends. When she wrote her autobiography Story of My Life she dedicated the book to him.
