Two Legends to Enter the Hall of Fame for Leaders and Legends of the Blindness Field in 2009

June 1, 2009

The Hall of Fame for Leaders and Legends of the Blindness Field, founded in 2001, is housed at the American Printing House for the Blind (APH) in Louisville, Kentucky. The Hall, which belongs to the entire field of blindness, is dedicated to preserving the tradition of excellence manifested by specific individuals through the history of outstanding services provided to people who are blind or visually impaired in North America. The Hall is guided by a nine member Governing Board.*

To date, forty-two outstanding professionals who made significant contributions to the field of blindness have been inducted into the Hall of Fame. Now joining those legends are two remarkable individuals who will be inducted on Friday evening, October 16, 2009 during a ceremony that will be held in conjunction with APH’s Annual Meeting of Ex Officio Trustees and Special Guests, at the Seelbach Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky.
