    Excerpt from A Chronological Survey of Work for the Blind: With an Appendix on the Prevention of Blindness, and a Bibliography, From the Earliest Records Up to the Year 1930

    The next thing that struck me was that to compile a history Of blind work in Great Britain alone would be like drawing a picture Of an Object without any surroundings, and so failing to get true proportion; so I decided to incorporate the main facts concerning work for the blind in other parts Of the world, with its blind population Of many millions.

    The history is intended to Show primarily the foundation and growth Of institutions and societies for the blind, the invention and production Of apparatus and methods for enabling them to lead happier and more useful lives, as well as legislation for their benefit. It also includes a certain amount Of what has been done by medical science to augment, save, and restore eyesight, and for the prevention Of blindness.

    It is not intended to be a history Of the blind men and women who have earned distinction in different walks Of life, such as the poet Milton, Fawcett the postmaster-general, and many others, including Helen Keller, a notable example Of a deaf and dumb and blind girl who reached a high standard Of learning. But I have attempted to record the names and valuable services Of those numerous blind persons who have earned distinction in ameliorating the lot Of those who suffer from the handicap Of blindness.
