Helen Keller is the renowned inspirational deaf and blind American, born in 1880 and struck by an illness, presumably Scarlet Fever or Meningitis, at the age of only nineteen months. Despite being plunged into "silence and darkness" from such a young age, she went on to become a celebrated writer and champion of the rights of the disadvantaged - disabled people, the poor, women - and has motivated many people, to make more of their lives.

Helen's great-grandfather was Casper Keller from Switzerland who came to the US and owned several large tracts of land in Maryland, Alabama where Helen's grandfather would build a home.
