Helen Keller’s Connection to The Iris Network

July 16, 2018

Sponsored by the National Federation of the Blind (NFB)

As a result of this presentation delivered in June of 2018, many of the attendees (including staff and board members, consumers, and residents of Iris Park Apartments) felt that the Greater Portland Chapter of the National Federation of the Blind (NFB) and Herb Adams, a Maine historian who researched and led the presentation, had given The Iris Network one of its greatest gifts … a deeper understanding of the historical connection between The Iris Network and Helen Keller. 

The video recorded by the Portland Media Center (PMC), formerly the Community Television Network will air on the cable channel, but not on a regular schedule, so you can enjoy it here, via the link that follows. The video lasts about an hour after a nice introduction by Walter Woitasek which ends at about the 7 minute mark: https://youtu.be/es8ZdP4NAgg
