About the name.

In 1891, teacher Anne Sullivan used these words to describe her famous student, Helen Keller. “For the first two years of her intellectual life she was like a child in a strange country,” wrote Sullivan, realizing that for her student, no learning was possible until she could overcome the communication barrier posed by blindness and deafness.
