Portrait of Helen Keller by Robert ShetterlyThis interesting site links to a number of Helen Keller's letters and other works, including a letter to Eugene Debs, an article entitled "How I Became a Socialist", and Keller´s FBI file (PDF), which worried about her "un-American" activities. These works do a great job of putting Keller and her ideas in an historical, political, and social context.
