"Annie Sullivan, Teacher to Helen Keller"
By Jim Howard of "Soochic Couture"
The doll was donated by Ashton Drake.

Inspired by the movie and play "The Miracle Worker"
with Annie Bancroft and Patty Duke as Helen Keller.
The doll is Gene, dressed as 'Annie Sullivan'
Helen Keller's beloved teacher.

Annie herself was partially blind and
through the personal experience of her
own suffering, was able to miraculously
teach Helen Keller, who was totally blind
and deaf, to read sign language by touch,
to read braille, and to become one of the
greatest inspirations of all time to those
who strive to learn.
The suit is a synthetic coarse wool blend
trimmed with silk woven braid and a silk
dupioni scarf. The hat is black straw.
The suitcase is genuine leather and the
velvet purse contains a lace trimmed handkerchief.
