Mission of the Hall of Fame
The Museum of the American Printing House for the Blind is dedicated to preserving and presenting the fascinating educational history of people who are blind and the historic contributions of the American Printing House for the Blind for the benefit of people who are visually impaired, educators of people who are visually impaired, and the broader community. They have an amazing hands-on collection that is a must see - particularly for those who are interested in the field of visual impairments and those who serve individuals who are blind or visually impaired.
The professionals featured in the APH Hall of Fame include professionals of the recent and distant past that are a cross-section of heroes and pioneers who not only shaped the vision field's history, philosophy, knowledge and skills, but also gave insights into current and future challenges. These giants shared strategies to ensure that services for blind persons remain unique and specialized.
