History of Blindness in Iowa Project


Iowans who are blind represent a cross-section of Iowa's population. Blind Iowans are farmers, banking executives, teachers, and more. Some Iowans were born blind or became blind as teenagers or adults. Every blind Iowan's experience is unique. Yet, cultural beliefs and attitudes about blindness have shaped how we have viewed all Iowans who are blind. The goal of this project and website is to share the experiences of blind Iowans and highlight the beliefs, events, and people that impacted their lives. These experiences and the history of blindness in Iowa are recounted through the framework of these themes: Advocacy, Community and Domestic Life, Education, Employment, and Tools & Technology. More than sixty blind Iowans have shared their stories and remembrances.
