Adults Who Received Services from Indiana Board of Industrial Aid for the Blind (1915)

Submitted by Amy Johnson Crow, CG

Source: Board of Industrial Aid for the Blind, first annual report [...] for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1915 (Fort Wayne: Fort Wayne Printing Co., 1916). This book has been digitized and is freely available on Internet Archive.

ABOUT THE BOARD: In 1915, Indiana passed legislation to provide aid for adults who were blind. The law created the Board of Industrial Aid for the Blind. The law was “intended to aid the blind to become independent and useful citizens.” By 1916, men received training at a broom shop located at 1180 W. 28th St., Indianapolis. Women received training, mainly in “fancy work” such as crocheting, sewing, and basket weaving; this work was done in their homes.
