Helen Keller, President Herbert Hoover, and international delegates outside the White House, 1932
This crowd scene, just outside the White House, has Helen, Anne, and Herbert and Mrs. Hoover (the President and the First Lady), all in the front row! The picture was taken in 1931 during an international conference of workers for the blind, which Helen helped organize. Also front and near-center is Robert B. Irwin, Executive Director of AFB.
