laura-bridgman-deaf-blind-woman

Everyone knows who Helen Keller was. But almost everyone
does not know who Laura Bridgman. Like with Keller,
Bridgman was deaf-blind. She has been credited as the
first deaf blind person to communicate through
sign language.

She attended Perkins School for the Blind, where
she grew as a woman of intelligence. She passed
away in 1889.
