Not Forgotten- NYTimes


Since 1851, more than 200,000 people have been the subjects of obituaries in The New York Times. Join us each day this summer as we revisit many of these memorable lives
We invite you to join us as we exhume obituaries from our archives, some dating to the 19th century. You’ll meet leaders, inventors, entertainers, artists, novelists and the infamous — each linked in some way to the date on which the obituary reappears. On some days we’ll ask influential people a simple question: If you could have dinner with one person who is no longer with us, who would it be, and why? NYTIMES Link

Helen Keller, left, with her teacher, Anne Sullivan in 1893.
“I seldom think about my limitations, and they never make me sad. Perhaps there is a touch of yearning at times, but it is vague, like a breeze among flowers. The wind passes, and the flowers are content.” Helen Keller obituary
