THE PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS 



Douglas C. MacFarland, Ph.D., President 

American Association of Workers for the Blind 

Director, Office for the Blind and Visually Handicapped 

Rehabilitation Services Administration 

Department of Health, Education, and Welfare 

Washington, D.C. 



There are so many things I want to say to 
you tonight, but I am well aware of the time 
limitations, and therefore, my remarks will be 
kept to a minimum. First, let me express my 
most sincere appreciation for the honor you 
have given me, letting me serve as your Presi- 
dent on two different occasions. It has been a 
great privilege, and I hope I have discharged 
my obligations to your satisfaction. 

The pleasure is double for me tonight be- 
cause this meeting is occurring in my adopted 
home state. The years spent serving blind 
people of this state were among my happiest, 
and I cannot think of a more fitting place to 
have this meeting than among the gracious, 
hospitable citizens of Richmond. If tireless 
effort and generosity mean anything, this will 
be a memorable meeting for all who join us 
during the week. 

Above everything else, a presidential mes- 
sage always contains a report of progress, and 
we have something to report since our meet- 
ing in Chicago. Our regionalization program 
has continued its momentum. We now have 
28 Chapters covering 41 states, and the Dis- 
trict of Columbia. Membership, too, has been 
growing by leaps and bounds. According to 
the latest figures given to me today, we now 
have almost 2,700 individual members and 
140 organizational memberships. This repre- 
sents phenomenal growth during the past four 
years, since the activities really got under way. 

Much credit for what has taken place must 
go to Bob Whitstock and to Vince lacurto. 



But they would be the first to tell you that it 
could not have taken place without the help 
of many and the support of the entire organi- 
zation. I should like to join with them at 
this time in thanking all of you for making 
the dream of the Regionalization Committee 
come true. I am sure they would also join 
with me in telling you that we have just begun 
and have a long way to go. 

Strong desire and good intentions have 
paved many roads "to you know where" for 
lack of good consistent leadership, and I 
should like to take this opportunity to extend 
my personal thanks as well as yours for the 
magnificent job John Naler has done for us, 
working sometimes under serious handicaps. 
Without good leadership from the National 
Office, we would have no progress report and, 
indeed, very little prospect of a future. I hope 
each of you will have a chance to thank John 
personally. 

One of the things that has concerned all of 
us as the organization grew is what can the 
National Office do that will be most helpful 
to the Chapters. Up to this point we have 
been struggling to keep our heads above 
water. Now, however, we are coming of age 
and can consider some possibilities, even 
though they may cost a little money. We are 
by no means affluent and, therefore, what is 
done must be done with careful planning. 
Please don't misunderstand — I do not mean to 
imply that the National Office and the Officers 
have not been contributing to the welfare of 



PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS 



the Chapters. All of the Executive Committee 
as well as many Board members have helped 
through personal appearances to form the local 
organizations and have given freely of their 
time to assist in assuring the success of State 
and local regional meetings and workshops, 
backstopping John and myself whenever it was 
impossible for us to make an appearance. In 
addition the national staff and the Editorial 
Board has steadily increased the quality and 
quantity of publications so that we are, not 
only serving the membership in this capacity, 
but have moved to a position where our prod- 
ucts are used extensively by universities train- 
ing professional personnel for our field. 

These are all plus factors and perhaps as 
much as most other national organizations are 
giving their membership. But I believe that 
if we are to continue our growth, expand the 
number of Chapters, and above all, serve blind 
people in this nation, we must consider other 
avenues of involvement. We will be employ- 
ing an Assistant Executive Director. What 
should his role be? It has been suggested that 
what is most needed is a good legislative ad- 
visor who would go to the States, help them 
formulate State legislation that would be most 
helpful to the local citizens, understanding 
and conforming to local problems. This, of 
course, is possible but, like anything else 
worthwhile, would be expensive. Real talent 
of this type is scarce; I hope, however, that if 
this idea appeals to you, you will let your Ex- 
ecutive Committee know. 

The amount of new Federal legislation en- 
acted during the past five years has been stag- 
gering. And what is more important for local 
groups is the need for companion legislation 
that will permit maximum advantage for those 
you serve. For example, a proposed welfare 
act, H.R. 1, has some sweeping implications 
for blind of all ages: social services, and how 
these apply to the majority of persons we 
serve; legislation, making provisions for serv- 
ices to older blind Americans; application of 
the new revisions of the Wagner-O'Day Act, 
P.L. 92-28; and substantial improvements that 
can take place if the Randolph-Sheppard Act 
is revised and passed as we hope it will be. 

Another very real way of assisting Chapters 
is to provide expert help in thinking through 
and developing projects designed to take ad- 



vantage of new support money, and at the 
same time open projects that are innovative 
and will bring new services to all whom we 
serve. This, too, will require a person of great 
skill and imagination, but it certainly is an 
area where help is needed and where a pos- 
sible contribution of national significance can 
be made. Please remember that perhaps only 
one of these ideas can be initiated to begin 
with, but we must be thinking of a variety 
of plans, letting the one with the greatest sup- 
port be started first. 

Another suggestion is to continue and ex- 
pand regional training in the forms of semi- 
nars. We have operated some workshops, but 
there is a real need for special executive train- 
ing for our public and private agency person- 
nel. The training sessions I am suggesting 
would be of one week to ten days' duration, 
operated in conjunction with Brookings or 
some other noted institution. These are vital 
if we are to keep abreast of what is going on 
and what is being planned by management and 
goverment in the future. Such programs have 
been in operation for State agency executives 
for a long time and, while we would all agree 
that good management principles are essen- 
tially the same, there are different areas that 
need special attention for agencies serving the 
blind, since many of our larger agencies work 
across the board rather than in program seg- 
ments. Perhaps such a project could be and 
should be the product of several organizations. 
I am merely indicating what it would mean 
to have a person planning and coordinating 
sessions on a full-time basis. Another idea 
would be the exchange of experimental ideas, 
such as will be taking place at our general 
session on Wednesday morning. 

Such proposals could be shared year round 
through publication in expanded News and 
Views or CONTEMPORARY Papers, with no 
great amount of additional expense. It might 
also be possible to use News and Views as a 
means for continuing the publication of posi- 
tion openings. There are but a few thoughts 
that we have discussed. They are designed to 
stimulate your thinking, and I hope they will 
result in many demands for service from the 
National Office during the next few months. 
Our organization has reached a point of growth 
where expansion cannot and should not take 



PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS 



place without the decision-making coming from 
you. 

One of the accomplishments during the past 
administration, of which I am very proud, is 
the formation of an official committee, con- 
stituted from the heads of major organizations 
of and for the blind. Speaking formally and 
informally to regional and State meetings, I 
have dwelt on the need for cooperation among 
all groups who serve the blind. In the com- 
ing decade pressures for services from all sides 
will be so great that unless we unite to make 
our voices heard on behalf of the blind, they 
will be lost in the general cacophony, and the 
hard-fought games that were won during the 
past century and a quarter, will be swept away 
on the rising tide of human rights. 

The committee was formed on the premise 
that, while we cannot agree on everything (if 
we could there would be no need for separate 
organizations), we do have many more points 
of common cause than we have differences. 
The time has come to search out those areas 
of agreement and develop national programs 
and legislation accordingly. We can no longer 
afford the luxury of philosophical arguments 
in public; we must iron out our differences 
privately and then present a solid front to 
Congress and others who will have a profound 
affect on our future. Lest anyone misunder- 
stand, let me make it very clear that coopera- 
tion means working together for the common 
good of blind people, no horse-trading on basic 
organizational principles. I can foresee no 
problem in everyone keeping his organiza- 
tional identity, but working together and ex- 
pending every possible resource for a common 
goal. 

In the past few years many have expressed 
the opinion that the day of obtaining special 
legislation for the blind has passed. A de- 
featist attitude of this kind is not only wrong, 
but plays into the hands of the propagandists 
who want us to believe that our efforts are 
futile. Congress and the State legislatures 
will never turn a deaf ear on request for help 
in fulfilling unmet needs so long as the pro- 
gram is presented logically, with ample sup- 
porting evidence, and the request has the 
backing of all concerned. Division on major 
issues can only result in confusion on the part 
of the lawmakers and defeat for the entire 



group. Even with the best of intentions, we 
will still have areas of conflict. But unless 
we belong to that peculiar minority who would 
rather fight than win, we had better nurture 
the development of a united front. 

Let me cite one area which has become of 
great concern to all of us during the past few 
years. Government, as you know, goes through 
cycles every 15 to 20 years. According to what 
is prevalent at the time, they become deeply 
involved in either merging departments or 
separating them in the name of efficiency and 
streamlined supervision. At present, the move 
is toward submergence of divisions, agencies 
and departments into one big umbrella organi- 
zation. Whether the principles are sound de- 
pends largely on the side of the fence you 
find yourself. In any event, it is not my pur- 
pose tonight to argue either side. The result 
for the blind in an ill-conceived merger can 
be disastrous. 

You have heard all the arguments — admin- 
istrative savings, streamlined supervision, 
more rapid service delivery to people, and 
much more. You also know that, at least in 
service to small population groups with very 
special needs such as the blind, none of the 
arguments holds water. You cannot effect 
economy by diluting services. If you sub- 
merge services, the real need can be lost in the 
clamor from other legitimate causes, and from 
this standpoint only can savings be effected. 
We must continue to support able spokesmen 
at all levels of government, but never sell the 
program on cost effectiveness. It is expensive 
to rehabilitate a blind person for employment 
or for independent living and there is no rea- 
son for minimizing the cost. The return in 
dollars makes the investment well worthwhile. 
But even if this were not the case, every 
American is entitled to equal opportunity for 
achieving his potential and living in a sem- 
blance of dignity. 

Too often we have heard it said that the 
"blind already have too many privileges." 
People who make such glib statements display 
their gross ignorance of the thousands of older 
blind persons and the multiply handicapped 
blind who have never received any substantial 
services other than very inadequate income 
maintenance. The major changes in adminis- 
trative structure will take place on the State 
and local level. Here is where the final story 



PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS 



will be written. The strongest public or pri- 
vate agency cannot continue to function nor- 
mally for those they serve and withstand the 
heavy pressures for reorganization very long 
without the complete support of you and or- 
ganizations like you. 

I began by outlining some of our prideful 
accomplishments. Over the past three quar- 
ters of a century we have had our share of 
success. But the establishment of who we were 
will have little value in determining who we 
are, or more importantly, who we want to be. 



It's foolish for any speaker to think that 
his work can influence future action of an 
audience, but I hope to make one point: the 
next decade, and those beyond, will require 
a whole new set of techniques; the challenges, 
frustration and rewards, too, will be greater. 
But only you and your counterpart organiza- 
tions will decide whether we pick up the wave 
of the future or rest comfortably in a back- 
wash and thus help fit the final words to an 
interesting but incomplete chapter of history 
titled "Work for the Blind." X 



MINUTES OF THE 1971 NATIONAL MEETING 



The 1971 Biennial National Meeting of the 
American Association of Workers for the 
Blind was held at the Hotel John Marshall, 
Richmond, Virginia, July 18-21, 1971. All 
who attended expressed delight with the true 
southern hospitality of our hosts and the his- 
toric beauty of Richmond. Under the chair- 
manship of William T. Coppage, the Host 
Committee had not overlooked any detail in 
planning an enjoyable meeting. 

A band concert at 7:00 p.m. by the 75th 
Army Band, Fort Belvoir, Virginia, preceded 
the Opening Session, chaired by Dr. Douglas 
C. MacFarland, President. The Presidential 
address followed a welcome by representatives 
of both State and city governments. 

President MacFarland presented Special Ci- 
tations to: 

Vincent J. Iacurto, National Member- 
ship Chairman, "in recognition of his out- 
standing accomplishments leading to the estab- 
lishment of new individual membership rec- 
ords in 1970 and 1971"; and 

Robert H. WhitstOCK, Chairman of the 
Chapter and Regional Organization Commit- 
tee, "in recognition of his outstanding ac- 
complishments in the organization and develop- 
ment of Chapter and Regional Organizations 
during the period 1969-1971." 

Six Chapter Charters were presented a, 
follows : 

Great Plains (South Dakota, North Dakota, 

and Nebraska) 
Louisiana 
Missouri 
Northwest (Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and 

Washington) 
Oklahoma 
Rocky Mountains (Colorado, Montana, Utah, 

and Wyoming) 



Informal entertainment followed, which pro- 
vided an opportunity for new members to get 
acquainted and old members to renew ac- 
quaintances. 

As in the past few years, the General Ses- 
sions were scheduled during midday, with the 
Special Interest Groups meeting at the be- 
ginning and end of the day. 

On Monday morning, at 7:30, the Chapter 
and Regional Presidents' Breakfast was held 
under the leadership of Robert H. Whitstock, 
Chairman of the Chapter and Regional Or-

1971 NATIONAL MEETING REPORTS 



REPORT OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS 



John L. Naler, Executive Director 

American Association of Workers for the Blind 

Washington, D.C. 



For those of you who have grown accus- 
tomed to hearing a Board of Directors report 
delivered by the Executive Director, I bring 
you a message of good cheer. This is, if I 
have anything to do about it, the last of this 
particular series. Do not, however, leap to 
the conclusion that the business session in 
Cleveland will be shorter than this one. 
Rather, I intend to speak in the 1973 National 
Meeting as the Executive Director who may 
or may not strictly agree with all that has gone 
on in our organization in the period preced- 
ing the meeting, or what may be planned for 
the future. 

In this connection, it seems to me that one 
of the major responsibilities of your executive 
is to challenge the membership to change. 
Hopefully, this type of activity will produce a 
better AAWB and one which will have greater 
appeal for the average worker in our field. 
Thus, I may feel constrained at a future meet- 
ing to take issue with some deciison which has 
been reached or to suggest an alternate solution 
to one which has been offered. 

Also, a report on behalf of the Board of 
Directors, if it is to be complete, must neces- 
sarily include a discussion of what the various 
committees have done, and I am of the opin- 
ion that all of them would rather speak for 
themselves. 

Being bound to some extent on this occasion 
by precedent and, perhaps even more, by the 
program, I am, however, forced today to fol- 
low in the footsteps of those who have pre- 
ceded me. 



It is very easy for me to sum up the bien- 
nium which ends today. AAWB has had the 
greatest two years in its long history! 

We have, as Mr. lacurto pointed out in the 
Membership Luncheon a short time ago, estab- 
lished new individual membership records in 
both 1970 and 1971 — which is a continuation 
of the precedent established in I968 and fol- 
lowed in 1969. 

We have, as Mr. Vieceli will report in a 
few moments, made remarkable progress dur- 
ing the past 24 months in improving AAWB's 
financial posture. 

We have during the past two years, with 
one less member on the national staff than 
was the case at the end of July, 1969, been 
able to process an ever-increasing number of 
memberships, while at the same time respond- 
ing to more requests for information and as- 
sistance. And I would like at this juncture 
to publicly acknowledge the magnificent work 
done by my Administrative Secretary for the 
past 18 months, Judith Nail, and the two 
young ladies who have done such outstanding 
work in processing memberships, Mary Lind- 
strom and Carleater Holmes. 

Three of the six issues of "Contemporary 
Papers" published to date have been made 
available during the past 24 months. Quar- 
terly supplements to the Card Catalogue have 
been sent to approximately 150 subscribers on 
a regular basis, and BLINDNESS continues to 
grow in popularity and use. 

The six regional meetings held last year 
were outstanding successes, and your Board is 



NATIONAL MEETING REPORTS 



confident that we shall do even better next 
year. 

All of you are aware that AAWB joined all 
of the other national organizations of and for 
the blind in a successful effort to reverse the 
decision of the Secretary of the Department of 
Health, Education, and Welfare to abolish the 
Division for the Blind and Visually Handi- 
capped. No agency I suppose can be singled 
out for contributing more to this effort than 
another, but I am very proud of the fact that 
the first alarm on a national basis went out 
from your own headquarters. And I am very 
happy that the efforts of four of our Chapters 
and a number of individual members contrib- 
uted greatly in changing the Secretary's mind. 

One of the Board's chief disappointments 
has been the failure of the group insurance 
program to gain sufficient qualified applicants 
to authorize the coverage offered. The income 
which AAWB might have received from this 
source could have lessened the burden of those 
who prepare and supervise AAWB's budget. 



But we simply have not received the response 
which was anticipated, and there appears to be 
no chance that either life or hospital in- 
demnity coverage will go into effect. 

One of the brightest periods of the last two 
years for me, and I'm sure all of the members 
of the Board, has been encompassed in the past 
three days. The work and planning of so 
many of our members in Virginia has pro- 
duced what I believe anyone in Richmond 
these past few days will agree has been an 
outstanding meeting. The Board is deeply 
grateful to all of those who helped with this 
44th national gathering of AAWB's members. 

There are few, if any, in this country who 
are greater fans of Miss Mahalia Jackson, who 
is known as the greatest gospel singer in the 
world, than this speaker. One of my favorite 
songs that she sings has a title which ex- 
presses very well the hopes and wishes I have 
for AAWB until we meet in Cleveland — 
"Let's Move On Up A Little Higher" in efforts 
to improve the lives of blind persons. 



REPORT OF THE TREASURER 

Louis Vieceli, Treasurer 

Assistant Professor of Rehabilitation, Southern Illinois University 

Carbondale, Illinois 



First, let me say that our auditor's report 
will be published in the PROCEEDINGS of the 
conference so that you will have a chance to 
review for yourself the complete financial pic- 
ture for the year which ended December 31, 
1971. 

However, I am very happy to be able to 
announce that, following deficits of more than 
$10,000 in 1968 and in excess of $21,000 in 
1969, the annual audit which was done for 
us by Rubin and Schimel, Certified Public 
Accountants of Washington, D. C, shows an 
excess of income over expenditures of $17,- 
516.99 for last year. Additional evidence of 
our improved financial posture is the fact that, 
as of May 31 of this year, we had more than 



$41,000 on deposit in interest-bearing accounts. 

AAWB income for 1970 from the various 
types of memberships (annual, agency, life, 
and student) plus revenue from publications, 
interest, support for regionalization, and other 
sources amounted to $70,382.25. General 
expenses amounted to $52,865.26, leaving a 
balance of $17,516.99. 

I think that special thanks should go to all 
of those who worked so hard to achieve our 
growth in memberships and to make regionali- 
zation such a successful and profitable enter- 
prise both professionally and. financially. 

The report from the firm of Rubin <Sc 
Schimel follows.

\- 
Gentlemen : 

We have examined the books and records of the American Association of Workers for the 
Blind, Inc., for the year ended December 31, 1970, and have prepared the following statements: 

Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Fund Balances 
Statement of Income and Expense 

The records of the Association are kept on a cash basis; therefore no liabilities were re- 
corded for fumre costs involved in servicing life membership and no inventory was taken of 
materials on hand. Our examination was made in accordance with generally accepted auditing 
standards with the exceptions above, and accordingly, included such tests of the accounting 
records and such other auditing procedures as we considered necessary under the circumstances. 

In our opinion, the accompanying financial statements present fairly the cash transactions as 
recorded of the American Association of Workers for the Blind, Inc., at December 31, 1970, 
and the results of its operation for the year then ended, in conformity with generally accepted 
accounting principles applied on a basis consistent with that of the preceding year.

REPORT OF THE AAWB-AEVH BRAILLE AUTHORITY 

Bernard M. Krebs, Chairman 
Librarian, Jewish Guild for the Blind, New York, New York 



The program of the Braille Authority during 
the past year encompassed two major projects: 
the development of a basic Computer Code, 
and the revision of the Mathematics Code. 
With the aid of advisory committees of spe- 
cialists and experts, substantial progress has 
been made in both these areas. 

The introduction of more sophisticated 
hardware into the computer field brought with 
it the inclusion of many more symbols than 
those required for earlier computer equipment. 
To assure that current and future symbolic 
configurations could be incorporated into the 
code, a system of two-cell symbols, each rep- 
resenting a single ink-print character, has been 
provided. In so far as possible, the com- 
puter symbols conform to those used in the 
Mathematics Code. In addition, a viable for- 
mat plan for presenting flow charts has been 
developed. The Computer Code is now in the 
last stages of development and should be ready 
to be presented for approval by the Associa- 
tions in the very near future. 

In response to comments and criticisms from 
educators, students, transcribers, and Braille 
publishers, the Mathematics Code has been 
given a substantial overhaul. The wording 
has been clarified; more emphasis has been 
placed upon clarity of Braille presentation; and 



primary consideration has been given to read- 
ability. Although the code is substantially 
similar to the 1965 revision, the minor changes 
and additions should prove of major value to 
both students and Braillists. A final review of 
the updated code is now under way and will 
be presented to the Advisory Council of the 
Braille Authority later this year. 

Members of the Braille Authority and its 
Advisory Committees have been in consulta- 
tion with Dr. Carson Y. Nolan and Mr. 
Cleves Kederis on the "Braille Codes Pilot 
Project" in connection with the SRS Planning 
Grant to the American Printing House for the 
Blind. All those involved in Braille code 
development are looking forward with real 
interest to the results of the Pilot Project and 
to the possibility of obtaining a major grant 
geared toward the refinement of all Braille 
codes. In the interim, viable Braille codes 
are at hand for English Braille, mathematics, 
music, textbook format and computer Braille,

NATIONAL MEETING REPORTS 



Chief, Division for the Blind and Physically 
Handicapped, Library of Congress; Finis E. 
Davis, Vice President and General Manager, 
American Printing House for the Blind. 

During the period of this report from July 
1969 to July 1971, the Legislative Committee 
met five times to discuss pending legislation; 
development of amendments to the Vocational 
Rehabilitation Act to provide rehabilitation 
services for older blind persons and generally 
to improve services for the blind, deaf-blind, 
and other severely handicapped; and to dis- 
cuss the reorganization of the Rehabilitation 
Services Administration abolishing the Division 
for the Blind and Visually Handicapped. In 
addition, under the leadership of the Chair- 
man of the Legislative Committee, represen- 
tatives of AAWB, Association for the Educa- 
tion of the Visually Handicapped, American 
Council of the Blind, American Foundation for 
the Blind, American Printing House for the 
Blind, Blinded Veterans Association, National 
Council of State Agencies for the Blind, Na- 
tional Federation of the Blind, and National 
Industries for the Blind conferred on the de- 
velopment of proposed legislation to amend 
the Vocational Rehabilitation Act and of a 
statement protesting abolition of the Division 
for the Blind and Visually Handicapped in 
RSA. 

Social Security and Welfare Reform 

In October 1969 the Vice-Chairman testified 
on behalf of AAWB as well as AFB on pro- 
posed improvements in the Social Security Act 
before the House Committee on Ways and 
Means. In addition, in September 1970, he 
appeared before the Senate Committee on 
Finance on the House-passed social security 
bill and filed a statement on the welfare re- 
form bill. 

As the 91st Congress failed to complete 
action on social security amendments, includ- 
ing welfare reform, the House Committee on 
Ways and Means initiated action early in the 
92nd Congress without additional hearings. 
Public Law 92-5, which increased the ceiling 
on the national debt, also contained a 10 
percent across-the-board increase in social se- 
curity cash benefits retroactive to January 1, 
1971. In addition, the House of Representa- 
tives passed H.R. 1 on June 22 containing 



Improvements in the OASDI program as well 
as welfare provisions of the Social Security 
Act. Of major significance to AAWB are the 
following improvements: 

1. Coverage of individuals entitled to cash 
disability insurance benefits for two years for 
medicare benefits. 

2. Liberalization of entitlement of blind 
persons to disability insurance cash benefits by 
elimination of the requirement of 20-out-of-40 
quarters preceding the onset of disability in 
covered employment. 

3. Federalization of the adult public assist- 
ance programs of aid to the aged, blind, and 
disabled with cash benefits for an eligible 
individual beginning at $130 monthly for 
fiscal 1973 and increasing to $150 monthly 
for fiscal 1975 and thereafter. (An eligible 
couple will be entitled to $195 monthly for 
fiscal 1973 and $200 monthly for fiscal 1974 
and thereafter.) 

4. Mandatory referral of all blind and dis- 
abled public assistance recipients under 65 for 
vocational rehabilitation services with the Fed- 
eral government covering the full cost of such 
services. 

When hearings are held by the Senate Com- 
mittee on Finance, the Legislative Committee 
proposes to continue advocating further lib- 
eralization of disability insurance provisions 
for the blind to permit blind persons with six 
quarters in covered employment to receive cash 
benefits without regard to their ability to en- 
gage in substantial gainful activity. In addi- 
tion, the Committee will continue to advocate 
liberalization of financing of and stricter State 
plan provisions in maternal and child health 
and crippled children's services under Title V 
of the Social Security Act to assure more effec- 
tive preventive and ameliorative services for 
children with vision problems. 

Randolph-Sheppard Act Amendments 

On July 9, 1970 the Chairman of the Leg- 
islative Committee testified in support of S. 2461 
before the Special Subcommittee on Handi- 
capped Workers of the Senate Committee on 
Labor and Public Welfare. This bill had been 
developed jointly by AAWB, ACB, AFB, 
BVA, NCSAB, and NFB and introduced by 
Senator Jennings Randolph of West Virginia, 
who also served as chairman of the subcom.- 



NATIONAL MEETING REPORTS 



15 



S. 2461 was passed by the Senate with 
minor changes on September 28, 1970. Hear- 
ings on it were held by the Select Subcom- 
mittee on Education of the House Committee 
on Education and Labor on November 30 and 
December 8. The Vice-Chairman of the Leg- 
islative Committee testified on behalf of 
AAWB as well as AFB and BVA on Novem- 
ber 30. 

As a result of overt and highly organized 
opposition by various postal workers unions 
and the American Federation of Government 
Employees, the subcommittee failed to act on 
the bill pending development of authoritative 
information on the extent of the income from 
vending machines on Government property 
being received by Federal employee groups. 
The Postmaster General is reported to be 
making a study of this question as it relates to 
installations under the control of the United 
States Postal Service. 

Senator Randolph has not yet introduced 
legislation in the 92nd Congress to improve 
the Randolph-Sheppard Vending Stand Act. 
It is doubtful that the House Committee on 
Education and Labor will do anything until 
after the Senate initiates action. 

Wagner-O'Day Act Amendments 

On July 9, 1970 the Chairman of the Leg- 
islative Committee testified in support of S. 
3425 before the Special Subcommittee on 
Handicapped Workers of the Senate Commit- 
tee on Labor and Public Welfare. S. 3425 
would amand the Wagner-O'Day Act to ex- 
tend its provisions to the other severely handi- 
capped while retaining a preference for the 
blind. It would also apply to purchase of 
services and assure workshops for the blind 
of a five-year priority over workshops for the 
other severely handicapped. The Senate passed 
the bill with amendments on September 28, 
1970; but the House of Representatives failed 
to act on it. Senator Jacob K. Javits (R- 
N.Y. ) reintroduced the bill with perfecting 
amendments early in the 92nd Congress as 
S. 557. It was passed by the Senate without 
any hearings on March 25. 

The Special Studies Subcommittee of the 
House Committee on Government Operations 
held hearings on the legislation on April 20- 
21, at which the Chairman of the Legislative 



Committee testified. The Subcommittee re- 
ported a "clean" bill, H.R. 8011, with exten- 
sive revisions to the Act designed to update 
the statutory authority for these preferential 
contract procedures in accordance with current 
practice. The bill increased the membership 
of the Committee for Purchase of Products and 
Services of the Blind and Other Severely 
Handicapped to fourteen and retained the pro- 
visions giving permanent priority in the pur- 
chase of products to workshops for the blind 
and the five-year priority in the purchase of 
services. The bill also authorized the Com- 
mittee to have a staff and provided funding 
for this purpose. 

On June 7 the House of Representatives 
amended S. 557 to contain the provisions of 
H.R. 8011. The Senate passed the bill on 
June 9 and sent it to the President, who signed 
it as Public Law 92-28 on June 23. 

Vocational Rehabilitation 

In cooperation with ACB, AFB, BVA, 
NCSAB and NFB, the Legislative Committee 
participated in the development of legislation 
designed to provide rehabilitation services to 
older blind persons by amending the Voca- 
tional Rehabilitation Act to establish special 
grants to the state program. The bill was 
introduced on March 1, 1971 as S. 1030 by 
Senator Jennings Randolph and 49 cospon- 
sors. A companion bill, H.R. 7949 was intro- 
duced by Rep. Carl Perkins of Kentucky on 
May 3. 

The same six organizations have jointly de- 
veloped amendments to other provisions of 
the Vocational Rehabilitation Act designed to 
improve services to blind, deaf-blind, and 
other severely handicapped individuals. These 
proposed amendments with modifications were 
introduced on July 15 as HR 9847 by Rep. 
Brademas. It is anticipated that hearings will 
be held by the House Select Subcommittee on 
Education late in September on proposed 
amendments to the Vocational Rehabilitation 
Act which expires June 30, 1972.

NATIONAL MEETING REPORTS 



AEVH, ACB, AFB, APH, BVA, NCSAB, 
NFB, and NIB — made representations to Mr. 
John D. Twiname, Administrator of the So- 
cial and Rehabilitation Service, and Dr. Edward 
Newman, Commissioner of the Rehabilitation 
Services Administration, urging restoration of 
the Division for the Blind and Visually 
Handicapped in RSA abolished in a reorgani- 
zation. As a result of these representations, 
HEW created in RSA the Office for the Blind 
and Visually Handicapped with full divisional 
status. Official notice of this restoration ap- 
peared in the Federal Register of June 9- 

In addition, both the Secretary of HEW and 
the Administrator of SRS indicated by letter 
that the Director of the Office for the Blind 
and Visually Handicapped would be designated 
as a Special Assistant to the Administrator 
for liaison with the other constituent agencies 
of SRS on programs affecting blind persons. 
They also indicated that an informal advisory 
committee would be established to provide 
consultation from time to time on programs 
for the blind administered by SRS. To date 
no action has been taken to appoint members 
of the advisory committee. 

The Committee recommends that AAWB 
support a concerted effort by other national 
organizations to improve coordination and in- 
crease availability of textbooks and other pro- 



fessional reading matter for blind students and 
employed blind persons. 

Your Legislative Committee will be alert to 
proposed legislation of specific significance to 
blind persons and workers for the blind. 
In addition to seeking improvements in social 
security, public assistance, vocational rehabili- 
tation, and vending stand legislation, the Com- 
mittee anticipates that national health insurance 
legislation in some form will be enacted by the 
end of the 92nd Congress and will attempt to 
assure provisions which will cover certain 
types of rehabilitation services for individuals 
with vision problems as well as normal medical 
and surgical services.

REPORT OF THE NECROLOGY COMMITTEE 

H. A. Wood, Chairman 
Past President, AAWB, Raleigh, North Carolina 



Without objection from the members, your 
Necrology Committee would appreciate this re- 
port being received as a part of the PROCEED- 
INGS of this convention, subject to any addi- 
tions that may be necessary. Thank you. 

Dear Hearts and Gentle People: 

In this quiet hour, we pause to remember, 
and to give thanks, that there are those who 



are willing to spend themselves that others 
may have a brighter and better way of life. 
Whatever their achievements, whatever their 
successes, we may never know; but we do 
know their lives have blessed countless thou- 
sands, and the world is a better place because 
they lived among us. 

Men do not love to think of death, because 
they are not on good terms with him. They 



NATIONAL MEETING REPORTS

resort to forgetfulness. They occupy them- 
selves, often, intensely. They rush into pleas- 
ures. They count him to be no kind com- 
panion, and no pleasant friend, who will insist 
upon reminding them of dying and death. Let 
no one talk lightly about death. It is a terrible 
reality. Sometimes death means release from 
limitations of the body as well as the end of 
physical suffering and pain. At times death 
becomes a revealer of those things that are 
most worthwhile, clearly showing us that some 
of the things to which we give our attentions 
are not worthy of our devotion. 

And sometimes we overestimate our im- 
portance, and think that death is a terrible 
thing because we are conceited in regard to our 
relations here in this world. But we are not 
as necessary as we think. The sun will come 
up tomorrow if we do die. The stars will 
shine if we are not here to see them. Summer 
will come if our plow is still. The world is 
not made to turn on us as a pivot. We oc- 
cupy a very small place. Our little will, and 
our little purposes, scarcely crease the great 
orb of affairs. And no man is so necessary that 
God cannot raise up one to take his place. 
But the true significance of death lies in the 
fact that it brings men into final moral rela- 
tions with God; that it brings moral character 
and conduct to a final test; that it brings men 
into judgment for all the deeds done in the 
body — for every word; for every thought; for 
every habit; for every element of character. 
At death, men enter into the presence of God. 

My friends, I say these things because these 
words could well be those of one of our de- 
parted members with whom I have spent many 
hours discussing the vicissitudes of life and 
death. And, as he would wish it, the follow- 
ing tribute to him belongs to all of our 
friends whom we recognize at this moment: 

Like Abraham, he went where he was called 

and was faithful in all things. 
Like Moses, he had led the people of God from 

doubts and fears to confidence for success 

in the face of difficulties. 
Like Joshua, he loved his country and fought 

and suffered for its success. 
Like Jonathan, he met many a discouraged 

brother and cheered him by giving him 

strength from God. 



Like David, he sang the church to victory and 
shouted on the battle of blessed triumph. 

Like Isaiah, he constantly pointed the church 
to brighter days and better things in the 
future. 

Like Daniel, he was true through life to the 
teaching of his boyhood days. 

Like Malachi, he believed in bringing all the 
tithes into the Lord's storehouse. 

Like John the Baptist, he delighted to cry to 
the multitudes: "Behold the Lamb of 
God." 

Like St. John, he believed with all his soul 
that Jesus Christ was the Son of God. 

Like Peter, he honored the Holy Ghost by 
teaching the doctrine of the operation of 
the Divine Spirit upon the souls of men. 

Like Paul, he rejoiced that Jesus died for all 
men and he did his best to let the world 
know this blessed truth with pen, song, 
and sermon. 

Like Jesus, his Divine Master, whom he fol- 
lowed daily, "he went about doing good." 

A blessed and consecrated Christian, he was 
true to his God, his country, his church and 
his fellow man. He sought to inspire others 
to share his enthusiasm and worked to the 
very last moment of his busy life for the in- 
terests of blind people. 

The world is richer because he lived, 
worked, and died in the faith. When he died 
there was only one place he could go. And 
it seems to me I can hear him reading again 
a poem he read to me one night in his room, 
a long time ago at a Workshop on Rehabili- 
tation Centers. Because of different positions 
he and I had taken on a matter that had been 
before the group in the afternoon session, it 
had been necessary to have an evening meet- 
ing. We resolved our differences, the meeting 
adjourned, and we went to his room together. 
Here is the poem: 

"God has not promised skies always blue, 
Flower-strewn pathways all our lives through. 
God has not promised sun without rain, 
Joy without sorrow, peace without pain. 
But God has promised strength for the day. 
Rest for the laborer, light for the way, 
Grace for the trials, help from above. 
Unfailing sympathy, undying love."

REPORT OF THE REHABILITATION TEACHERS' 
CERTIFICATION COMMITTEE 

Vera J. McClain, Chairman 

Rehabilitation Teacher of the Blind, Vocational Rehabilitation Service 

Birmingham, Alabama 



The Certification Committee met at 10:00 
a.m.. Room 1442, John Marshall Hotel on 
Sunday, July 18. Present were: Vera J. Mc- 
Clain, Chairman; Louise B. Cowan; Alvan H. 
Roberts; Roy J. Ward; and Ruth Kaarlela. 

The application for provisional certification 
of Margaret Kay Crabtree of Illinois was 
recommended for approval by the AAWB 
Board of Directors. 

The issue of change in certification require- 
ments, including both academic and experi- 
ence factors, was discussed, along with the 
desirability of including instruction in re- 
habilitation centers about certification stand- 
ards. 

To clarify the relationship between NAC 
standards and certification requirements, the 
Committee requested a meeting with repre- 
sentatives of NAC. 

This was held on Monday afternoon, at 
5 :00 p.m. Present were Alexander F. Handel 
and Huesten Collingwood of NAC, and Vera 



J. McClain, Louise B. Cowan, Alvin H. Rob- 
etrs and Ruth Kaarlela of the Certification 
Committee. Mr. Handel explained that NAC 
standards will be reviewed beginning in 1973, 
that it is desirable for the various professional 
disciplines to develop standards, and that pro- 
fessions, themselves, establish certification cri- 
teria. NAC standards are not a substitute for 
certification. 

The Committee decided to review the mat- 
ter of certification criteria and will make this 
its objective during the next biennium. It 
will also present the matter of NAC stand- 
ards for review by Interest Group 3.

REPORT OF THE RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE 

L. H. Autry, Jr., Chairman 

Director, Arkansas Rehabilitation Services for the Blind 

Little Rock, Arkansas 



Resolution 1 

Whereas, The regionalization efforts are 
showing a positive impact on the field of work 
with the blind as evidenced by the growth in 
Chapters and membership bringing in a 
broader representation of individuals interested 
in work for the blind; and 

Whereas, The successful regional confer- 
ences demonstrate the leadership, talent and 
dedication which exist at the grass-roots level; 
and 

Whereas, The continued injection of new 
people, new ideas and emerging leadership 
into the main stream of organizational activity 
is the life blood of a growing, responsive 
movement; and. 

Whereas, a sound, progressive, respon- 
sive, relevant program of services for blind 
and visually handicapped individuals is de- 
pendent on continued growth in leadership 
and organization; and 

Whereas, We recognize and commend all 
those individuals involved in furthering the 
regionalization efforts : 

Therefore Be It Resolved, That the 
American Association of Workers for the Blind 
meeting in Richmond, Virginia, July 21, 1971, 
pledges to continue its efforts to insure the 
future growth and expansion of state, local and 
regional organizations in order to better serve 
the needs of blind and visually handicapped 
individuals. 

Resolution 2 

Whereas, Agencies and programs for the 
blind have in the past developed service con- 
cepts and service delivery methods which have 
been adopted for use by agencies and programs 
serving other populations of disabled or dis- 
advantaged citizens; and 

Whereas, AAWB is committed to the goal 
of providing comprehensive services to the 
blind, so that such individuals may attain 



maximum personal independence and enter 
fully into the life of their communities; and 

Whereas, The pursuit of this goal by agen- 
cies and programs for the blind can lead to the 
development and demonstration of new serv- 
ice concepts and service delivery methods 
which will redound, not only to the advantage 
of blind individuals, but also to the benefit of 
other disabled and disadvantaged citizens who 
presently are the subject of great national 
interest and concern; now, therefore, 

Be It Resolved, That AAWB hereby ex- 
press to Secretary Elliot L. Richardson and 
other HEW officials strong support of and 
deep appreciation for the Department's action 
in establishing an Office for the Blind and 
Visually Handicapped, with direct account- 
ability to the Administrator of the Social and 
Rehabilitation Service; and 

Be It Further Resolved, That AAWB 
commits itself to working closely with this new 
Office, not only for the purpose of improving 
and strengthening services for blind and visu- 
ally handicapped Americans, but also for the 
purpose of developing new service concepts 
and methodologies which will have a signifi- 
cant impact upon major social concerns which 
need to be effectively addressed in the imme- 
diate future; and 

Be It Furthpr Resolved, That, while 
AAWB sincerely appreciates the outstanding 
leadership and direction given to work for 
the blind by the former Division for the Blind 
and Visually Handicapped, it must be noted 
that the effectiveness of the former Division 
was greatly restricted by chronic shortages of 
personnel, and it being apparent that these 
staff problems will become more acute when 
the new Office for the Blind and Visually 
Handicapped begins to assume its broadened 
responsibilities, AAWB respectfully requests 
that the highest priority be given to provid- 
ing additional, competent staff to this Office.

NATIONAL MEETING REPORTS 



Resolution 3 

Whereas, Braille and recorded material 
mailed by the blind is now accepted by the 
U.S. Post Oflfice free of postage, but is han- 
dled as third-class mail, often resulting in long 
delays in delivery; and 

Whereas, Blind persons frequently have 
need for faster service on important mail- 
ings; and 

Whereas, Braille and recorded material is 
two to three times as heavy as material typed 
on ordinary bond paper, and would therefore 
cost two to three times as much to mail: 

Therefore Be It Hereby Resolved, That 
the U.S. Post Office, in considering its rates 
during reorganization as a non-profit corpora- 
tion, be petitioned to consider increasing the 
weight limit on Braille and recorded material 
mailed by the blind to three ounces instead 
of the customary one ounce limit; and 

Be It Further Resolved, That this new 
provision shall not be considered a replace- 
ment for the free franking privileges now given 
to the blind and physically handicapped under 
provisions of third-class mail; and 

Be It Further Resolved, That the Ameri- 
can Association of Workers for the Blind, Inc., 
meeting this 21st day of July, 1971, in Rich- 
mond, Virginia, go on record as supporting 
the above and making these recommendations 
known to the appropriate authority within 
the U.S. Postal Service. 

Resolution 4 

Whereas, There has been an absence of 
specialized training for professionals involved 
in Business Enterprise Programs for the Blind; 
and 

Whereas, There is evidence of the need for 
specialized training in this field of work for 
the blind; and 

Whereas, The changing economy requires 



that new approaches and methods be used with 
constant updating if blind and visually handi- 
capped individuals are to compete in the busi- 
ness world; and 

Whereas, Business Enterprises have long 
been a sound employment opportunity for 
blind and visually handicapped individuals 
and must continue to provide this opportunity; 

Be It Resolved, That AAWB, meeting in 
Richmond, Virginia, on July 21, 1971, sup- 
ports the efiforts of those involved in Business 
Enterprise Programs to secure Federal training 
funds for this purpose; and 

Be It Further Resolved, That a copy of 
this Resolution be sent to the appropriate 
Federal officials. 

Resolution 5 

Whereas, The 1971 National Meeting of 
the American Association of Workers for the 
Blind in Richmond, Virginia, is drawing to a 
close; and 

Whereas, We, the membership, have en- 
joyed the outstanding hospitality of the people 
of Richmond and the Old Dominion; and 

Whereas, We would like to express our 
sincere appreciation to all who have worked 
to make this an enjoyable, enlightening and 
productive meeting: 

Be It Therefore Resolved, That the Na- 
tional Office express its appreciation to the 
Host Committee for a job well done and ask 
that appropriate expressions of appreciation be 
sent to all the organizations, volunteers, and 
agencies whose cooperative efforts produced 
such a successful conference.

REPORT OF THE WORLD COUNCIL FOR THE 
WELFARE OF THE BLIND 

M. Robert Barnett, Chairman, United States Delegation 



This afternoon it is my intention to follow 
the practice of the past several years of simply 
updating the record with regard to the repre- 
sentation of the United States in the member- 
ship structure of the World Council for the 
Welfare of the Blind. I am fully aware that 
there may be some among you at this AAWB 
convention who would like to know a great 
deal more about the WCWB organization 
itself, its history, objectives and accomplish- 
ments; if so, please drop me a line or write 
to its President, Mr. Charles Hedkvist of Stock- 
holm, Sweden, or to the Secretary-General, 
Mrs. Marcelle Cowburn at the World Coun- 
cil's headquarters in Paris, France. 

As most of you do know, the World Coun- 
cil meets in General Assembly every five 
years. Its last General Assembly was in Oc- 
tober, 1969 at New Delhi, India. For some 
months prior to that Assembly, a number of 
us got together in an attempt to make our 
U.S. delegation more representative of our or- 
ganizations for and of the blind. These con- 
versations resulted in a delegation (under the 
WCWB constitution we were entitled to six 
delegates by virtue of our population level) 
of the following persons and the organizations 
who had the privilege of naming them : 

"American Association of Workers for the 
Blind" — Mr. Howard Hanson of South Dakota; 
"Association for Education of the Visually 
Handicapped" — Mr. Carl Davis of Massachu- 
setts; "National Federation of the Blind" — 
Mr. Russell Kletzing of California; "Ameri- 
can Council of the Blind" — Judge Reese Ro- 
brahn of Kansas; "Blinded Veterans Associa- 
tion" — Mr. James Hyde of Washington, D.C.; 
"American Foundation for the Blind" — Mr. 
M. Robert Barnett of New York City. 

Actually, Mr. Louis H. Rives had been the 
AAWB designee, but circimistances were such 
that he could not make the trip and your 
AAWB leadership agreed to the substitution of 
Mr. Hanson, who actually ilid participate at the 
New Delhi Assembly. Mr. Hyde was also 
unable to attend, and I carried his proxy. 
Since that meeting, Mr. Russell Kletzing's 



seat on the delegation has been yielded to Mr. 
Kenneth Jernigan at the request of the Na- 
tional Federation of the Blind. 

The overall management of the World 
Council's affairs is largely carried out through 
an Executive Committee. Under the Consti- 
tution, the Executive Committee is made up 
through allocation of specific numbers of seats 
to the various regions of the world. For Ex- 
ecutive Committee purposes, North America is 
considered a region, entitled to a total of five 
seats. Our regional caucus resulted in the 
nomination and subsequent election to the Ex- 
ecutive Committee of the following persons : 

Mr. Arthur N. Magill of Canada; Mrs. Elisa 
M. de Stahl of Guatemala; and Messrs. Han- 
son, Robrahn and Barnett of the U.S.A. 

At the New Delhi assembly, the presiden- 
tial term of Mr. Eric T. Boulter came to an 
end, and he was succeeded by Mr. Charles 
Hedkvist of Sweden, mentioned earlier in this 
report. Mr. John Colligan of the Royal Na- 
tional Institute for the Blind, London, is 
Treasurer. The undersigned was elected one 
of several vice-presidents, in this case Vice- 
President for North, Central and South 
America. 

The newly elected Executive Committee, it 
has been decided, will meet in Moscow, 
U.S.S.R. in the spring of 1972. Among other 
things at that time, a decision will be reached 
as to the date and place of the next General 
Assembly, which should occur some time in 
1974. If anyone not on the delegation is in- 
terested in more details about these meetings 
and might consider attendance, please let me 
know and I will try to be helpful. 

With regard to the New Delhi conference 
itself, I would say that it was historically not- 
able in two essential ways. First, even though 
the setting was in a part of the world con- 
sidered these days to be "under-developed", the 
professional content of the assembly was in no 
way modified, and all participants had the op- 
portunity to hear papers in all facets of our 
field of work for the blind of exceptionally 
high quality, and especially thorough with re-

1971 AAWB MEMBERSHIP REPORT 



Vincent J. lacurto, National Membership Chairman 

District Manager, Bureau of the Visually and Physically Handicapped 

Altoona, Pennsylvania 



The American Association of Workers for 
the Blind has had truly a great year in the 
membership area. We have broken all mem- 
bership records to date and have achieved the 
highest membership in the history of our or- 
ganization. 

Our success has been primarily due to the 
development of state chapters and regions. Mr. 
Robert Whitstock is due a lot of credit for 
his untiring efforts and canvassing of the en- 
tire country to promote and assist state mem- 
bers in the formulating of new chapters. 

We now have 28 chapters. Our leadership 
under Dr. MacFarland has been strong and 
active in the membership area. However, the 
major portion of the credit for such an out- 
standing membership year goes to the chap- 
ter and non-chapter membership chairmen and 
their committees, who are the real workers 
and go-getters in the soliciting of member- 
ships. 

At the last national meeting, the member- 
ship stood at just over 2,000 individual mem- 
bers, which represented a very substantial 
growth over the previous year. 

As of this date,* we have 2,801 individual 
members. Agency memberships total 151. 



'As corrected for press dace. 



Alany professional organizations such as ours 
have found it very difficult to maintain their 
previous year's membership total, due to the 
current economic recession. In spite of this, 
we have been able to maintain and increase 
our membership. This is a great achievement, 
especially after reading of the lament of the 
American Medical Association regarding their 
loss in membership. 

At this time, 1 would like to give you in 
numerical order the individual membership 
standings of the chapter and non-chapter units. 
However, the following figures are by no 
means final.

provided us with the excellent administra-

to a successful membership campaign. 



PRESENTATION OF 
THE ALFRED ALLEN AWARD 

To 

O. F. WISE 



Director (retired), Rehabilitation and Crippled Children 
Alabama Department of Education, Montgomery, Alabama 



By 

Louis H. Rives, Jr., Director 

Health and Social Services Division, Office of Civil Rights 
Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, Washington, D.C. 



Ladies and Gentlemen, It is a distinct pleas- 
ure for me to have the chance today to pre- 
sent the Alfred Allen Award. I am doubly 
happy because the recipient of the award, 
whom I have known for all those years back 



to 1943, asked me to do this. And, while I 
know it is an honor for him to receive the 
award, it is just as much of an honor for 
me to present it. 

The Alfred Allen Award is one of the 



MEMBERSHIP LUNCHEON 



27 



major awards of AAWB. It is predicated on 
service to blind people. And I understand 
that the wife of the gentleman for whom 
the award is named and in whose honor it was 
established by the Association is here. (Ap- 
plause for Margaret Allen ) . Every time we 
present this award we honor Alfred Allen and 
we are delighted to have you here to honor 
today too, Margaret, because you were such 
an important part of his life and his con- 
tribution. 

The Allen Award is one that stands for 
service. The recipient today probably could 
have been selected to receive any award that 
AAWB bestows because, not only has he been 
important in service to blind people, but he 
has been important in administration — he has 
held almost every post and received every 
honor that a grateful nation, through its pro- 
grams for disabled people, can bestow. He 
has been President of the National Rehabili- 
tation Association, he has been President of 
the States Council, he was the first person rep- 
resenting a general agency to be President of 
the Council of Executives of State Agencies 
for the Blind. He has been academically 
honored — he just recently received a Doc- 
torate degree from his alma mater, Auburn. 

There is not much more you can say about 
a man like that. The thing that I want to 
talk about is this: that throughout the years 
that he has devoted to rehabilitation, and those 
years go back to 1927, and even before that 
the recipient of this award taught in an Indian 
school because nobody else would teach the 
Indians — this was when he took a year off 
to work in the shipyards and came back in 
November and school did not start until the 
next Spring and they had to have a teacher 
for the Indian school and Freddy rode horse- 
back three miles each way every day to teach 
the Indian children. At that time and from 
then on, he has always had compassion and 
interest in people who are disadvantaged. 

In 1927 he went with the Alabama rehabili- 
tation program. He immediately began to be 
concerned about blind people. I have heard 
Freddy tell about the time that he went to 
the school for the blind and he saw all the 
little children with their heads pointed up 
singing a hymn and he said he wondered what 



those eyes that could not see, but were looking 
straight up, could see in their future. And he 
said, "I cried and I decided to help make 
them a future." 

And from then on that is what he has done. 

In everything that has been undertaken, 
Freddy Wise has used his administrative ca- 
pacity and his ability to get things done to 
serve people. The establishment of what is 
now one of the great rehabilitation centers for 
the blind in this country at Talladega is a 
tribute to him. 

Freddy has a philosophy that goes about 
like this: figure out what you need to do, do 
it, and then see if the Federal Government 
will pay for it — and somehow it always 
works out. 

In my years with the Vocational Rehabilita- 
tion Program I know of no state that has 
had more financial exceptions noted than 
Alabama, and I know of no state that has paid 
fewer of them off — because always it was 
figured out that it was for the good of the 
people, and if you can figure that out, then 
you are going to get an exemption. 

Freddy has brought a compassion, an under- 
standing, a desire to get things done, and each 
time that an action has been taken, it has 
been taken because it helps people. Helping 
people has been his job, and he has been able 
to translate that into accomplishment of one 
of the great programs of our nation. Freddy, 
I have known you for so long and been so 
close to you that I guess I tend to get a little 
bit sentimental. But in every session at every 
time we have been together and every meeting 
that has ben organized, you looked out for the 
welfare of all the disabled people of Alabama, 
but right close behind that was a little special 
thing for those who are blind. In the meet- 
ings and the sessions that we have organized 
you have always been there to make sure that 
blindness, and those who serve the blind, and 
the blind people themselves, were represented. 

And so, Freddy, on behalf of the American 
Association of Workers for the Blind, with 
sincere personal affection, with deep apprecia- 
tion for what you have done, and with last- 
ing admiration for your accomplishment and 
recognition of your contribution, we present 
to you the Alfred Allen Award for distin- 
guished service in work for the blind.

THE ALFRED ALLEN MEMORIAL AWARD 

In Appreciation of Outstanding Service to Blind Persons 

Presented this 21st Day of July, 1971 
In the City of Richmond, Virginia 



ACCEPTANCE OF THE ALFRED ALLEN AWARD 



O. F. Wise 



Lou, I did not know whether I was to say 
anything or not until I looked at the program 
and saw that it included a "response." 

I want to stay at the outset of my remarks 
that I particularly appreciate Mr. Rives taking 
the time and effort to come to Richmond for 
this presentation. He has been one of my 
favorites since we sat together struggling over 
the regulations to implement the 1954 amend- 
ments to the Vocational Rehabilitation Act. 
Because of the interpretation I got from him 
and others, we went on and did some things 
even though the specifics of what was author- 
ized were not alwaye entirely clear. But he 
helped me to interpret the law without it being 
written down, and I just figured that he and 
I knew as much about the law as anybody else, 
including the bureaucrats in Washington. 

Shortly after I became a member of AAWB 
some years ago, I met Alfred Allen. I was not 
sure just what his importance to the organi- 
zation was, but it did not take me long to 
realize that he was "Mr. AAWB" — he was 
the one that I decided was holding things 
together. I learned to admire and respect him, 
and I am particularly pleased that I have been 



given the award named for him. 

About four years ago John Parsons of my 
staff came around with a story that AAWB 
was trying to increase individual memberships 
by forming state Chapters. So I said, "Let's 
have one — let's have a Chapter." Even be- 
fore that, when I heard people say that AAWB 
was in trouble and wanted to know what could 
be done, I guess I was one of many who sug- 
gested dues from agencies. I recognized that 
Alabama could pay for an agency membership 
and could do so legally. So, you see, Lou, 
there are some things I wanted to do legally. 
Seriously, 1 do hope that the agency member- 
ships and Chapters have been a real benefit 
to AAWB in carrying on its fine work. 

It is always good to see all of you. It is 
great to be here, and I am highly appreciative 
of the honor you have bestowed on me. You 
know I retired June 30, and the only thing 
that I can talk about with any authority now 
is the concern of a private citizen for con- 
tinued impetus for programs for rehabilitating 
all of the handicapped — and especially the 
blind. 

Thank you all very much.

PRESENTATION OF THE JOHN H. McAULAY AWARD 

To 

HAROLD RICHTERMAN 

Director of Rehabilitation Services, National Industries for the Blind 
New York, New York 

J. Arthur Johnson 
Executive Director, Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind, Washington, D.C. 



If your feelings were hurt because you're a 
friend of Harold RIchterman's, but you 
weren't selected to present the McAulay Award 
to him, I'm sure the pain will be eased when 
I tell you about the criteria used. 

I really was honored when Rick asked me 
to do this pleasant task - — that is, until he 
told me that I was the choice solely because I 
am the oldest living person in work for the 
blind. 

When he finished telling me about the re- 
search involved, and some of the findings, I 
felt so old and decrepit, I suggested that he 
establish an award in his name, to be called 
"Harold's Halo" — (happily handed to half 
dead hacks who have had it), and based on 
my qualifications as determined by his research, 
I should be the first recipient. 

Seriously, I am honored to be presenting 
the McAulay Award, and to be serving as a 
bridge between two great men and two eras 
in work for the blind. 

The man for whom the Award is named 
made a brilliant and lasting contribution to 
this field by bla2ing new trails leading to 
placement of countless additional blind per- 
sons, not only in then existing occupations but, 
more importantly, in occupations in which 
even "blind persons themselves did not realize 
they could function successfully. 

The tangible results of John's efforts could 
be seen because the number of blind persons 
placed, and the broader variety of occupa- 
tions in which they were placed, could be 
counted. 



The intangible aspects of his efforts may 
well be equally or even more significant, even 
though they can't be measured precisely. His 
personality, his philosophy and his accom- 
plishments have had a profound and positive 
influence upon many people who have fol- 
lowed him, including Harold Richterman, and 
every previous recipient of the McAulay 
Award, as well as many other people in the 
field. 

It may, at first glance, seem strange that 
Rick has been chosen as a recipient of this 
Award, since his brilliant record is identified 
with the broad aspects of rehabilitation serv- 
ices rather than placement as a specialty. 

It really isn't strange — it's just one further 
bit of evidence that his thinking put him 
ahead of most of us. He long ago recognized 
the need for sound programs of services aimed 
at developing the employment potential and 
the degree of independence of every blind per- 
son to the maximum possible level. Without 
these, the doors opened by John McAulay and 
those who followed him could well be slammed 
in our faces once again, because we'd very 
quickly run out of blind persons who are 
ready to go to work. 

Rick's outstanding performance at IHB, 
over the many years he was there, and in the 
years since he joined the staff of NIB, is a re- 
flection of how he operates — never at less 
than full speed ahead. The same is true of 
his countless assignments in Board and Com- 
mittee work with AAWB, as an active mem- 
ber and officer of the New York State Federa- 



30 



MEMBERSHIP LUNCHEON 



tion, as a COMSTAC Committee Member, as a 
Government-assigned consultant to Israel, and 
in numerous other outside activities. 

Because he does move at full throttle, he 
sometimes becomes impatient with some of us 
who don't, and he never at any time has been 
known to be unable to find words to express 
his impatience. Neither has he ever been 
unwilling to stand up to be counted when he 



has a conviction regarding an issue involving 
the well-being of blind persons. 

Would that more of us had his courage of 
conviction. The world could use a lot more 
people who will speak out as he does when he 
feels he should. 

Add these things together, and it is per- 
fectly clear that their total equals the McAulay 
Award, which I'm proud to present to Harold 
Richterman.

ACCEPTANCE OF THE JOHN H. McAULAY AWARD 
Harold Richterman 



Thank you Art, Ladies and Gentlemen : 

It is with a good deal of humility that I 
accept the honor accorded me here today. I 
say this because I am the tool of the efforts of 
so many people who helped me, taught me, 
trained me, had patience with me and at times 
I'm sure would have liked to kill me. Hiram 
Chappell, Art Voorhees, Joe Clunk, George 
Keane and Peter J. Salmon are but a few of 
the people who allowed me to drain them 



whenever possible of any information I could 
regarding service to blind persons. How- 
ever, there is one person above all who should 
be recognized at this time. A man of whom 
probably half or more of you have never heard. 
A person who has spent his entire career in 
the service of rehabilitating blind persons into 
remunerative employment and under whom I 
studied for 21 years at the Industrial Home 
for the Blind and to whom I still look for 
guidance and encouragement. Whether you 



MEMBERSHIP LUNCHEON 



31 



think it is good or bad I would not be stand- 
ing here talking with you today if it were not 
for this one person above all who shaped my 
career and my destiny. I know of nothing that 
I may have accomplished in our field of serv- 
ice to blind persons that could have been ac- 
complished without his support. I refer to 
the person who is now Associate Director of 
the National Center for Deaf-Blind Youths and 
Adults, Harry J. Spar, and I take this oppor- 
tunity to say a simple "thank you" Harry. 

I am pleased that AAWB has seen fit to 
honor not only me but National Industries 
for the Blind as well. National Industries for 
the Blind is driving and will continue to drive 
towards one of its main goals, the employment 
of the multi-handicapped blind person in 
workshops associated with NIB. The pro- 
gram of certification by the General Council 
of Workshops for the Blind, now an accepted 
fact of life by the associated workshops, has 
acted as a stimulus for evaluation and up- 
grading of workshop programs to provide for 
the employment of limited blind persons. 
While placements into competitive employ- 
ment from NIB associated workshops have re- 
mained fairly constant over the past two years, 
this is due in large part to the workshops ac- 
cepting more and more severely limited blind 
persons into employment for whom competi- 
tive employment cannot be an immediate or 
foreseeable goal in the near future. More and 
more NIB associated workshops are develop- 
ing, separate and apart from the workshop, 
work evaluation and work adjustment training 
programs, without dependence on workshop 
raw materials or workshop delivery schedules, 
in order that the main focus can be where it 
belongs — on the blind person being served! 
Such a program can only lead to competitive 
placements where the blind person can be 



placed in accordance with his best useable skills, 
but, just as important, an increase in the place- 
ment, not only in the special workshop, but 
competitively as well, of multi-handicapped 
blind persons, who, through adequate work 
evaluation and work adjustment training, may 
have an opportunity to strengthen those specific 
work abilities where any handicaps in addition 
to blindness may play a relatively unimportant 
role. 

Certainly the placement of limited blind 
persons into the special workshop or even the 
Work Activity Center, assuming fair piece 
rates, support on the job, and all those other 
services needed to sustain limited blind persons 
at their own highest level of work ability, can 
mean only that we are serving that blind per- 
son for whom heretofor such training and 
placement services were not available. Let us 
all redouble our efforts, not alone in placing 
the competent blind person but, more im- 
portantly, let us strive for the placement of the 
most neglected segment of the blind popula- 
tion, the multi-handicapped blind. 

For years at NIB it was said, "What is good 
for the workshops is good for NIB". At our 
last national meeting in Fort Lauderdale, Flor- 
ida, it was Noel Price who said, "What is 
good for the blind person is good for the 
workshop is good for NIB." 

This then is our challenge! Employment 
service to the most limited! Service with re- 
spect, dignity, objectivity, but, above all, the 
best service we can possibly provide. 

Again my thanks to so many of you who 
made this award possible, which I accept in the 
name of multi-handicapped blind persons 
everywhere who are waiting for us and look- 
ing to us for the respect and dignity which 
comes from employment at the highest possible 
level of employability for each one of them.

PRESENTATION OF THE AMBROSE M. SHOTWELL 
MEMORIAL MEDAL AND SCROLL 

To 

ARTHUR N. MAGILL 

Managing Director, Canadian National Institute for the Blind 

Toronto, Ontario 



PRESENTATION OF THE MEDAL 



By 



George Werntz, Jr. 

Executive Vice-President, The Seeing Eye 

Morristown, New Jersey 



President MacFarland, Reverend Clergy, 
Mr. and Mrs. George Thompson, Mr. and 
Mrs. John Magill, Mr. and Mrs. Bruce 
Cathcart and other Distinguished 
Guests, Fellow-members of AAWB, 
Ladies and Gentlemen: 

In June of 1951, just a little over 20 years 
ago, Elizabeth Hutchinson, now Vice-President- 
Emeritus of The Seeing Eye, took me by the 
hand and led me to the true fountain of youth, 
the source of all knowledge and good fellow- 
ship. At that point in time all these healing 
fluids spouted in Daytona Beach, Florida, at 
the Sheraton-Plaza Hotel, the site of the 1951 
Convention of AAWB (then an annual affair) . 
I was new in the field, bewildered and a little 
shy, but I gained a great deal from it and was 
inspired that night when Helen Keller ac- 
cepted the Shorwell Award, just as I have been 



by other AAWB conventions and Shotwell 
dinners in the passing years. 

In my first year with Seeing Eye it was de- 
cided only at the last moment to expose me to 
the rigors of an AAWB Convention, so that 
when I tried to reserve a room at the Sheraton, 
every space was taken. But they referred me 
to a small guest house not far away (and with 
much more reasonable rates). I soon found 
myself the only guest, waited on hand and foot 
by a most hospitable southern staff and urged 
to use, as my very own, a spacious veranda 
overlooking the blue Atlantic. It made a won- 
derful place to entertain and to get acquainted 
for the first time with fellow-workers from all 
parts of the country. One of the very first 
people to set foot on my porch was the man 
we honor tonight — a man conspicous to- 
night by his most regrettable but unavoidable

absence — Arthur Magill. To make it an 
even more memorable occasion, Art brought 
along his charming wife, Isobel. We have 
been good friends ever since, and I count it a 
signal honor tonight to stand, as it were, astride 
the 3000-or-more-mile border, unfortified on 
either side for more than one hundred years, 
and which separates, in geographic terms 
only, our two great countries — Canada and 
the United States — to pay tribute to a great 
Canadian and a great humanitarian. 

1910 was a good year. It was the year Sir 
Arthur Baden-Powell inspired the founding of 
the Boy Scouts of America. Glenn Curtis won 
a $10,000 prize for a flight from Albany to 
New York City, a distance of 137 miles in 
152 minutes. And Arthur Magill and I were 
born! Arthur first saw the light of day in 
Cobourg, Ontario; and I use the term "saw" 
literally, for he did not lose his sight until age 
17. He attended public schools in Saskatche- 
wan and later, the Ontario School for the 
Blind. He received his B.A. degree and in 
1935 his Master's degree from Michigan State 
University in Economics and Business Admin- 
istration. His thesis was titled "Economic 
Treatment of Blind Persons in the United 
States." We surmise that Art was not en- 
couraged by his findings, for he beat a hasty 
retreat to Canada and took a job with CNIB 
as district field secretary in Windsor, Ontario. 
From the outset he demonstrated outstanding 
administrative skills and leadership in extend- 
ing direct services to blind persons in his dis- 
trict. He also exhibited an interest, which 
has never waned, in the equally humanitarian 
work of preserving vision and preventing 
blindness. 

By 1945, Mr. Magill had already come un- 
der the scrutiny of the then CNIB Managing 
Director, the late Colonel Edwin A. Baker, 
whose name is still revered by all of us more 
senior members of this Association. Art 
Magill was appointed supervisor of field serv- 
ices for all of Ontario Province, with an area 
of 413,000 square miles, roughly equal to the 
combined area of the states of New York, New 
Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia 
and (believe it or not, Burt Risley) you can 
throw in TEXAS, too! In this position he 
was responsible for representing Ontario's 15 
field offices. Five years later, in 1950, he be- 



came overall Superintendent of the Ontario 
Division of CNIB, a position held today by 
Mr. Ross Purse. 

In 1962, on the retirement of Colonel 
Baker, one of the founders of the CNIB, Mr. 
Magill was named his successor in the man- 
agement directorship, a job for which he had 
been carefully prepared by the Colonel. In 
this post he assumed responsibility for ren- 
dering the most comprehensive variety of serv- 
ices to 27,000 blind and visually handicapped 
Canadians out of a total population of 21 mil- 
lion from many ethnic and national roots. 
This population, including the blind, is spread 
throughout a vast land mass that stretches from 
the U.S. border north to the Arctic Circle, and 
from the Atlantic to the Pacific, nearly 4 mil- 
lion square miles. We hear a great deal in 
the United States — we have heard here in 
sessions of this convention — a great deal 
about the delivery of health and welfare serv- 
ices by hundreds of agencies and thousands of 
professional and para-professional workers. 
But the variety and quality of services effi- 
ciently delivered on so hemispheric a scale by 
this single unified organization, CNIB, with a 
staff of 1500 highly competent people work- 
ing out of more than 50 offices and 21 general 
service centers, is to me thrilling even to con- 
template! This growth in size and efficiency 
has been achieved in 53 years, during which 
time it has had just three directors — Charles 
W. Holmes, Edwin A. Baker and the man we 
honor tonight, Arthur Napier Magill. Such 
unity, efficient delivery of services, continuity 
and excellence in administration, bespeak the 
high quality of these leaders and the great 
national team they have gathered together. 
Both Holmes and Baker, like Arthur Magill, 
were Life Members and served as Presidents 
of the AAWB. Both were also recipients of 
the Shotwell Award — Holmes in 1939 and 
Baker in 1952, the only Canadians so honored 
up till now. (Even though he served with 
CNIB for a number of years, we cannot coimt 
the 1949 Shotwell Award recipient, our much 
beloved and 100 percent American with that 
final-sounding name Joe Clunk! ) 

Some of us may think the United States is 
the sole beneficiary of emigrants from other 
nations, but one needs only to visit a few days 
in any large Canadian cit}' to realize how many 



34 



AWARD BANQUET 



wise Europeans, Asians and Africans have 
found their way farther North. Many stu- 
dents and budding rehabilitation experts from 
other nations flock to CNIB for informative 
sessions on how (and to quote CNIB's stated 
objectives) "to ameliorate the condition of the 
blind and to prevent blindness." The CNIB 
also sends its experts overseas to lend counsel 
in dozens of far-away places. In 1953, for ex- 
ample, Arthur Magill himself spent a year in 
Egypt under the auspices of the United Na- 
tions Technical Assistance Administration as 
director of a pilot project for setting up an 
education and rehabilitation center for the 
Middle East. He returned to Cairo in 1955 
for a second phase of the project, and in 1957 
he spent some weeks in Beirut, again under 
UN auspices, to make a survey of facilities 
for blind people in Lebanon. 

As a Life Member of AAWB, Art Magill 
has been a staunch supporter of this organiza- 
tion, and before becoming its President in 19 
AND 67 (as Colonel Watts used to say) 
served as Chairman of the National Executives' 
Interest Group, as a Director, Executive Com- 
mittee member, as well as a member of the 
Editorial Board and Awards Committee. He 
has played an equally prominent role in the 
World Council for the Welfare of the Blind, 
of which his old friend and mentor Colonel 
Baker was the first President. He has served 
on the WCWB Employment Committee, as 
chairman of the Program Committee for the 
1969 General Assembly in India. And he is 
presently a member of the Executive Com- 
mittee and the Committee on Inter- American 
affairs. In all of these assignments he has 
consistently exhibited the gentlemanly tact and 
dignity, the firm but quiet insistence on the 
same highest standards, that have been re- 
flected in his own personal life. 

We could list innumerable other accomplish- 
ments and aflFiliations of our respected col- 
league — in community affairs and other 
health and welfare activities of varied scope 
in Ontario and throughout Canada. From 
such references as we have already made, how- 
ever, you have gained an insight into the ex- 
tent to which this good man, Arthur Magill, 
has given of himself, and which is undoubtedly 
the reason why he is unable to be with us in 
person tonight to enjoy and savor fully, in spite 



of his natural humility and modesty, this 
memorable occasion and high honor. Having 
received a timely warning from his generous 
but often over-worked heart, he is at home 
tonight under doctor's orders, receiving the 
loving ministrations of that gracious lady, 
Isobel Hobbs Magill, whose presence here to- 
night we also greatly miss. I should say at 
this time, however, how delighted we are to 
have Art and Isobel's son John and daughter 
Judy and their spouses Mary and Bruce with 
us tonight. According to latest reports, Art is 
making excellent progress, and only last week 
I received an excellent letter from him on 
official business, quite likely, I hope, dictated 
from his couch at home. 

In Art's most regrettable but unavoidable 
absence, it is my pleasure and privilege to call 
at this time upon his son, John Magill, an 
attorney from Toronto, to accept for his father, 
in absentia, the highest honor this Associa- 
tion can bestow. John, will you please rise: 

In recognition of our admiration and re- 
spect for his 36 years of leadership on Pro- 
vincial, National and International scale; for 
his outstanding services to blind men and 
women wherever he has found them; for his 
ability, inherited in part from his predecessor, 
to enlist co-workers of the highest quality 
(personally and professionally); and above all 
for his manly self-effacing character and his re- 
markable endowment of love and reason; and 
(to borrow the words of one of his esteemed 
colleagues) his ability to be an effective part 
of a "reasoned and loving creation"; for all 
these things that have made him so dear to 
us, I hereby commission you, John Magill, to 
receive and transmit forthwith to your father, 
Arthur Napier Magill, this 1971 Ambrose J. 
Shotwell Medal (the 30th to be awarded since 
its inception), with all the rights, privileges 
and responsibilities appertaining thereto; and, 
we pray you, let it be known it is accom- 
panied by the fervent wish of everyone in this 
audience that he will be hale, hearty and 
abroad in the land again soon. We hereby 
admit him to the "Order of the Faithful" and 
congratulate all members of the Magill and 
CNIB family. For Art Magill and — "O, 
Canada" — we stand not "on guard for Thee," 
but in tribute to Thee! Will everyone please 
rise — Thank you!

PRESENTATION OF THE SCROLL 



By 



W. E. MILTON 

National Director, Vocational Guidance and Training 

Canadian National Institute for the Blind 

Toronto, Ontario, Canada 



To be chosen by one's colleagues as merit- 
ing the highest recognition they can bestow 
is a distinction which comes only to a select 
few who, by the significance of the contribu- 
tions they have made in their fields, have 
demonstrated their worthiness for such an 
honour. Arthur Napier Magill is such a one. 
We are keenly disappointed, as he is, that he 
is prevented from being with us on this im- 
portant occasion in his distinguished career, 
but I want to thank the Awards Committee 
for its thoughtful and perceptive evaluation of 
his qualifications for the Shotwell Award, and 
for its decisions to name him as the 1971 
recipient of it. 

It is a particular personal privilege and 
pleasure for me to participate in this presen- 
tation ceremony this evening. My own 
association with Arthur Magill goes back some 
34 years, almost to 1935, which was the year 
in which he became identified with the Canadi- 
an National Institute for the Blind as a mem- 
ber of its staflf. We were then co-workers in 
Ontario at the local level in district adminis- 
tration and direct service work. Later, we 
were colleagues in Divisional administration 
in different provinces of Canada and, since 
1962, when he became Managing Director of 
CNIB, succeeding the late Col. E. Baker as the 
executive head of our one nation-wide service 
agency for the blind In Canada, Mr. Magill 
has been my Chief. 

Throughout this long association, I have 
known Arthur Magill as a man of great per- 
sonal integrity', of high service and business 
ethics and principles, and of deep concern for 
the dignify and well being of individuals. I 
have known him, too, as a friend and as a for- 



ward-looking and dedicated leader in work for 
the blind and prevention of blindness. 

It is, therefore, a special honour for me to 
represent the CNIB, its President and National 
Council, its volunteers and staff from coast to 
coast, as well as the blind people of Canada, 
in paying tribute to Arthur Magill tonight. 
His personal dignity and his wise and effec- 
tive leadership have earned him the respect, 
the admiration and the esteem, not only of his 
own organisation, but of his community and 
his nation at large, of the various levels of 
Government in Canada, and of the other 
Health, Welfare and Rehabilitation agencies 
with which he has been and is associated. 

But, as you already know, his Interest and 
his concern for blind people and for those 
threatened with blindness have not been con- 
fined to his own country. He has been active 
internationally through this Association as its 
President In 1967-68 and In other ways, 
through the United Nations, and through the 
World Council for the Welfare of the Blind. 
He has given leadership also to putting the 
facilities and resources of the CNIB to work, 
to assist in training workers for the blind 
from other countries as an aid to the develop- 
ment of more effective programmes of service 
around the world. 

All of us who know Arthur Magill as a 
leader, as a colleague and as a friend, are 
proud to see him join that distinguished 
group of people who have honoured the 
memory of Ambrose M. Shotwell by the qual- 
ity and scope of their achievements in their 
work with and for blind people, the work 
to which he gave so generously of himself 
and of his talents.

ACCEPTANCE OF THE AMBROSE M. SHOTWELL 
MEMORIAL MEDAL AND SCROLL 

Arthur N. Magill 



Mr. President, honoured guests, and my fellow 
members of the American Association of 
Workers for the Blind: 

I want to express my deep appreciation to 
you for selecting me as the recipient of the 
1971 Ambrose M. Shotwell Memorial Award. 
I also wish to express my keen disappoint- 
ment at not being present on this occasion to 



thank you in person for the honour you are 
bestowing on me tonight. 

This disappointment is tolerable only be- 
cause my son and daughter are here to rep- 
resent me. I am particularly proud to have 
my son John accept this award on my behalf 
and express to you my thanks. 

I am conscious that the Shotwell Award is 



AWARD BANQUET 



37 



the highest honour our organization can be- 
stow, and it has been my good fortune to have 
been present for almost all thirty of these 
awards since the first presentation in 1939. I 
am also aware that the award carries with it 
other honours, such as the association of one's 
name with those of the great leaders in the 
history of work for the blind. The award 
also brings honour to the family of the re- 
cipient and, in my case, many members share 
with me in this honour. My mother, sister 
and brothers gave me strength, encouragement 
and inspiration in my early years of blind- 
ness. For the last thirty-two years my wife, 
Isobel, whom many of you know, and my chil- 
dren John and Judy, have made it possible for 
me to have a very happy, satisfying life and 
have aided me in my various activities as a 
blind person. I am aware that the award 
carries with it recognition of the organiza- 
tion which I have the honour to represent, the 
Canadian National Institute for the Blind. 

During my life I have lived in countries 
where the people and the customs were dif- 
ferent from ours. At the conference table it 
has been my privilege to meet outstanding 
people from many countries, and I have found 
the sincerity of these men and women to have 
a tremendous influence on me, dedicated as 
they are to improvement of the status and well- 
being of blind people throughout the world. 
Because of this common cause, these people 
have a strong link with all who serve the 
blind of North America and, jointly with us, 
owe a great debt of gratitude to two indomita- 
ble pioneers of the 19th Century, Louis Braille 
and Ambrose Shotwell. When you study the 
lives of these men, besides finding many dif- 
ferences, you also discover a number of ob- 
jectives they held in common. Braille lived in 
France, Shotwell in the United States. Braille 
died in 1852, the year before Shotwell was 
born. Yet both men were dedicated to help- 
ing those who had lost their sight. It was al- 
most as if Shotwell took up the struggle where 
Braille left off. It was not enough for Braille 
to invent the system of reading and writing 
that bears his name. He also had to convince 
his countrymen that blind persons could be 
educated even if on a very elementary level. 
When Shotwell came on the scene, he had to 
convince his countrymen that blind persons 



had skill and ability and were capable of high 
school and university studies. It was not easy. 
So ingrained was the idea of the helplessness 
of the handicapped in the preceding century 
that Shotwell found almost as much defeat and 
discouragement as Braille had found. How- 
ever, his voice was heard with a little less 
scepticism. After all, there was the Braille 
system and blind people were using is effec- 
tively. Shotwell led the movement for the 
establishment of the Michigan School for the 
Bland and, at one time, worked there as a 
Braille stereotyper. Although it is a coinci- 
dence that I myself attended the same school, it 
is no coincidence that I am a firm believer in 
the need for blind persons to be trained and 
educated, a need which Ambrose Shotwell 
recognized and preached at every opportunity. 

It was this same spirit that brought him to 
the setting up of this very organization, the 
American Association of Workers for the 
Blind. The aim of the first blind members 
of the organization, then known as the Ameri- 
can Blind Peoples Higher Improvement Asso- 
ciation, was to obtain a college education. To 
the public of the 1970s there is nothing un- 
usual about a blind person earning a college 
degree and even doing post graduate work. 
However, to the public of 1902, a blind uni- 
versity student was a rare phenomenon, indeed, 
and the group they formed was considered 
radical. Shotwell himself was labelled a radi- 
cal and, since Louis Braille held similar ideas, 
he, during his lifetime, also would have been 
considered a radical. Both believed in the 
capability, dignity and independence of blind 
people. 

Shotwell felt that capable blind persons had 
a responsibility to participate and provide 
leadership in the development of organiza- 
tions working for the blind. The organization 
he helped pioneer, our AAWB, attests to the 
success of this view. A teacher himself. Shot- 
well believed that young blind people, once 
educated, were capable of filling positions of 
high responsibility. If he could return to- 
day, he would see that his once radical dreams 
have become reality. Over the last decade the 
leading universities of North America have 
educated thousands of blind students who have 
graduated, received their degrees and success- 
fully entered many professional fields. In 



38 



AWARD BANQUET 



addition, very large numbers of blind people 
have taken advantage of technical training and 
are successfully employed. Today the whole 
horizon of employment opportunities has 
broadened for blind people. In Shotwell's 
time we had the horse and buggy and the 
newly invented Braille system. Today v/e have 
the jet plane and the visual prosthesis. By 
comparison with 50 years ago, we live in a 
miracle age that our predecessors could scarce- 
ly imagine. And yet our services for the blind 
are taken for granted — taken for granted not 
only by our blind clients, but by the public 
whose generosity has made these very services 
possible. 

Although very much has been accomplished 
during the past fifty years, today no one can 
afford to rest on his laurels. Institutions 
on all levels are being challenged. We in 
Canada feel that this is constructive, and we 
who are involved in work for the blind should 
constantly be reassessing our program and ask- 
ing ourselves: 



Are we providing the services that are rele- 
vant to the needs of blind people today? 

Are we listening to what blind people are 
saying, and do they have opportunity to par- 
ticipate in the formation of programs to meet 
their needs? 

Are we using our available resources to the 
full, such as our staff, our agencies, volunteers 
and, particularly, the blind people themselves? 

It is important, also, to ask ourselves if our 
institutions have become so business-oriented 
that the main interest of our staff members is 
with the organization itself, rather than serv- 
ing the individual blind person, for he is still 
the only reason for the existence of our or- 
ganizations. 

I am confident that the future holds great 
promise for blind people if we all take full 
advantage of the multitude of aids, resources 
and services that are available. 

May we continue to move forward to put 
tomorrow's promise within reach of all!

THE PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS 



Cleo B. Dolan, President 

American Association of Workers for the Blind 

Executive Director, Cleveland Society for the Blind 

Cleveland, Ohio 



Introduction 

We wish it were possible for 
us to report to you this morning 
to the effect that this has been 
an exciting, stimulating and 
glorious two years — during our 
term of office. However, many 
of you would be avjare that this 
was a slight exageration. To 
be frank with you, there were 
many challenges. 

In 1972 — The expiration of 
the Association's sizable HEW 
grant that we had enjoyed since 
1964. Namely, the income for 
the bibliography card catalog 
project, the professional 
training materials — the re- 
sources for printing the Posi- 
tion Papers and the income that 
made it possible to develop and 
print the Annual — "Blindness." 
This loss in funds made it 
necessary to reduce the Associ- 
ation's budget by 100% ($135,000 
before $67,000 for current years) 
Inflation compounded our finan- 
cial problems. 

However, our greatest dis- 
appointment was John Naler's 
resignation last November and 
the lack of an Executive Direc- 



tor from the first of December 
until the first of July. The 
responsibilities of the Presi- 
dent were further complicated 
with the convention scheduled 
for Cleveland. These addi- 
tional chores, along with the 
Cleveland Society for the 
Blind's major alteration and 
expansion program at our Busi- 
ness Enterprize, Work Readiness 
and Activity Center, that has 
been under construction since 
February 1972; a Building Fund 
Campaign; the continual work 
for the purchase of several 
properties for the Society's 
building projects, plus 
acquiring a twenty unit apart- 
ment house for a student resi- 
dent center; and finally, 
breaking ground this week for 
the Sight Center's new addi- 
tion — have all increased our 
work load. 

Fortunately, Doug MacFarland 
and Bob Whitstock assisted 
with some of the major obli- 
gations at the AAWB office. 
Betty Ravenscraft, Bob 
Whitstock; the Ohio AAWB 
Chapter members. The Society's 
volunteers Red Cross Braille 
Volunteers, and staff assumed 



almost total responsibility for 
the convention. As the events 
of the convention proceed for 
the next three days, we feel 
certain you will agree that they 
have all done a superb job. 

In an attempt to stay within 
our time schedule, so that we 
will have maximum available 
time for the next exciting 
program, on the agenda for 
10:30 I shall be brief and to 
the point. 

It is said that reflections 
are for the elderly and for 
the "has beens." With this we 
take issue, for it seems to us 
that reflections are the corner- 
stones on which challenges are 
built and challenges are the 
materials from which permanently 
strong structures develop. Thus, 
the past two years of my presi- 
dency of AAWB have furnished 
much for reflection, much for 
challenge, and we hope struc- 
tural strength for the future. 
Though it affords ample material 
for reflection, we feel neither 
elderly nor at this point quite 
as a "has been." In fact, the 
past two years have afforded us 
real exhilaration, and although 
we look forward to the orderly 
transfer of responsibilities 
to our President Elect, v/e shall 
continue working on behalf of 
the American Association of 
Workers for the Blind. 

Too frequently members of an 
organization such- as ours tend 
to be critical of its lack of 
accomplishment, its seemingly 
rudderless journey through the 
chaos of existence, and we 
draw these conclusions because 
most of us do not examine 



closely the path we have 
charted and the degree of 
progress attained. It is with 
this in mind that we should 
like to reflect for a few 
minutes on the past several 
years and draw from those 
reflections the challenges 
which we think are important 
for the American Association 
of Workers for the Blind in 
the future. 



Reflections of the Past 

For many years those of us 
who were concerned about the 
future of this Association, its 
growth and its permanency, 
struggled with the intricate 
problems of restructuring in 
order to involve more people 
at the grass-roots. To this 
end we encouraged state 
chapters, with the expectation 
that these would add impetus 
to the development of strong 
regionalization. In 1967 we 
saw the first state chapter 
come into being in the State 
of New Jersey under the guid- 
ance of Joe Kohn, Bob 
Whitstock, and its first 
president. Father McGuinness. 
This development set the 
pattern and the challenge 
for other states. 

In 1968 we celebrated the 
50th anniversary of the 
Canadian National Institute 
for the Blind. Can you ever 
forget the hospitality and 
the enthusiasm generated in 
our 1968 convention? Here 
as you recall the problems of 
diabetes and the diabetic, 
once more came to the front 
in our concern. 



In the next year we saw the 
birth of NAC, a product of many 
long hours and even weeks and 
months of careful consideration 
of those proposals leading to 
standards of accreditation for 
agencies serving blind persons. 
Frankly we are at a loss in 
understanding the furor which 
seemingly rages in respect to 
accreditation today. The 
concept itself was born out 
of the feeling of need by 
agencies serving the blind; 
its growth and development 
comes from continuing consul- 
tation with agencies serving 
the blind; and it seems to us 
that if we are fearful of apply- 
ing the yardstick of sound 
standards to our operations 
either in the public or the 
private sector, then we most 
assuredly open the question of 
our right to exist as a vehicle 
purporting to deliver quality 
services to the blind and 
visually handicapped population 
of this country. Consumer 
involvement is a vital factor 
at all times, but it cannot be 
the overriding factor to the 
detriment of sound adminis- 
tration, funding, staffing, 
program development and quality 
control. 



Whitstock led the development 
of this concept and devoted 
many long hours in selling it 
around the country. For these 
tireless efforts, he headed 
the slate of nominees as a 
candidate for President Elect 
and will at the end of this 
convention assiome the Presi- 
dency. Most importantly, how- 
ever, our membership rose to 
an all-time high of 2,500 by 
the end of the year 1971. 

We would be remiss if we did 
not at this point allude to 
the Richmond convention typi- 
fied by the tremendous Southern 
hospitality which the host, the 
Virginia Commission for the 
Visually Handicapped under Bill 
Coppage, extended to all of us. 
Their efforts have left a long- 
standing model for our con- 
ventions of the future. At the 
end of that meeting the gavel 
was transferred and we offi- 
cially ass;imed our duties, 
thinking that there might be 
a brief lull in activities. 
We were mistaken, for the AAWB 
was on the move and it took us 
with it. 



1971-73 



In 1969 in Chicago, we agreed 
to return to a biennial con- 
vention, meeting in the odd- 
numbered years nationally and 
in the even-numbered years 
moving toward strong regional 
programming. This took some 
time to get off the ground, but 
it began to move and prior to 
the 1971 convention in Richmond, 
Virginia, when regionalization 
became a reality. Robert 



We moved rapidly into the 
planning of regional confer- 
ences and as your president 
it seemed to us that there was 
an obligation to be a part of 
these regional meetings when- 
ever possible. In fact, we 
attended five of the seven 
regional meetings last year, 
as well as several Chapter 
meetings. There were three 
held in the latter part of 1972 



with 303 registrants coming to San 
Francisco. This, too, was an out- 
standing demonstration of the 
support obtainable if the AAWB 
was brought to the membership in 
the field. Eugene Spurrier led 
the Mid-Atlantic Conference in 
Washington, D.C. and 166 members 
registered for it at the 
Burlington Hotel. Our Mid-West 
Region has had the privilege of 
meeting twice — once in the 
Detroit area, and once in 
Dayton, Ohio. As a matter of 
fact, the states of the Mid- 
West held a regional meeting 
in Minneapolis a number of 
years ago as a pilot demon- 
stration that regionalization 
could work. You might be 
interested to know that of the 
seven regional meetings which 
took place in 1972, 1,091 
persons attended. 

Late last summer the Associ- 
ation mailed nearly 3,000 copies 
of the Annual "Blindness" to its 
members. This fine publication, 
we believe, was "up to par" with 
several other volumes developed 
in previous years. Believing 
that it was -essential to equal- 
ize travel and expenses for all 
members of the Board of Direc- 
tors, last December we held a 
meeting in St. Louis, Missouri, 
and with a pre-determined 
formula, to assist in the 
payment of expenses where this 
became necessary and when the 
Chapter, the individual, or 
the agencies could not pick up 
the travel cost for their 
employees who served as members 
of the AAWB our Board of 
Directors. There were 41 in 
attendance at this meeting and 
the cost to AAWB was only about 
$300. The Association is 



grateful to the agencies. Chapter 
and Board members who assumed 
the costs and aided the AAWB 
budget in this manner. The re- 
sults of this meeting clearly 
indicate the value of moving 
at least one board meeting per 
year out of Washington, D.C. and 
yesterday the Board voted to 
continue this plan. 

As most of you are aware in 
December of 1972, this Associ- 
ation sustained a serious loss 
when our Executive Director, 
John L. Naler left us to return 
to civilian duties with the 
Department of the Army at the 
Pentagon. Last evening we 
honored Mr. Naler with a small 
token of our esteem, but unless 
you had the privilege of work- 
ing closely with John, you could 
never know his value to the 
American Association of Workers 
for the Blind and his dedication 
to its growth. He encountered 
innumerable challenges as our 
Executive Director. Yet with 
it all, he never lost his sense 
of balance, his ready smile, 
his cheerful greeting, and his 
110 per cent or more effort to 
see the AAWB achieve a leader- 
ship role among associations. 
To all of us who are involved 
in staging this convention and 
in the administration of the 
AAWB, Mr. Nale's loss was a 
substantial blow, but the 
heritage he left on which we 
can build, will long be remem- 
bered. 

While we are talking about the 
early part of 1973, Interest 
Group 3 composed of rehabili- 
tation teachers and social 
caseworkers, attempted to deter- 
mine whether or not both pro- 



fessions could be better served 
within the umbrella of our Associ- 
ation, if each developed its own 
interest group. We hope that 
whatever is best for these two 
professional groupings will come 
to pass under the leadership of 
our national organization. 

Within the past several 
months, additional events sur- 
rounding this convention have 
taken place. Bruce Blasch has 
assumed the duties in our 
national office as the Associ- 
ation's Executive Director, as 
of July 1st. We have in this 
convention provided an employ- 
ment exchange information 
booth, for those who are in 
the market to hire and for 
those who are in the market 
to change jobs. 

This convention was preceded 
by a all day workshop in public 
relations, for the purposes of 
benefitting all agencies 
serving the blind, with an 
attendance of over 100 persons. 
We have just learned that our 
past president, Roy Kumpe of 
the Arkansas Enterprises for 
the Blind, has had bestowed 
upon him an honorary doctorate 
from the University of Arkansas. 
On behalf of our entire member- 
ship, we offer him congratula- 
tions. Lastly, as of last week 
we had 28 Chapters, 142 Agencies, 
and 3,220 Individuals, and hope- 
fully, by the end of the conven- 
tion we will be close to the 
3,300 mark. 

Before closing oup accounting 
to you, we must touch on an 
event which shall long live in 
the memories of Mrs. Dolan and 
myself. 



The World Council for the 
Welfare of the Blind Execu- 
tive Committee Meeting , 
Moscow, Russia 



In May 1972 and as the AAWB 
representative to the World 
Conference on Welfare for the 
Blind, I had the unusual oppor- 
tunity, together with Bob 
Barnett — the AFB representative 
and Chairman of the North 
America delegation; and Judge 
Reece Rohbrandt, as the dele- 
gate from the American Council 
of the Blind, to spend ten days 
in Russia. This was a meeting 
of the WCWB Executive Committee 
to review policy matters, com- 
mittee reports and to plan the 
WCWB general assembly to be 
held in San Paulo, Brazil, in 
Aug. 1974. Bob Barnett ' s 
report was included in the 
registration material you 
received, which we hope you 
will read. We have reported 
on this trip to some of the 
Regional, and several of the 
Chapter meetings. However, we 
would like to share a few brief 
comments on our observations 
and impressions with you at 
this time. 

The hospitality was superb 
in every respect. They could 
not have been more gracious 
hosts. I think it is fair to 
state that most of the 35 
delegates probably felt 
restricted, that we might be 
under a certain amount of 
surveilance, and we were very 
cautious in our remarks. 

Services for the Blind were , 
in our opinion, very well 
organized and compared to 
their social standards. We 



must remember that this is a commu- 
nist country and work oriented 
society, plus the fact that their 
standards of living have been very 
deprived for centuries. However, 
it would seem that the blind are 
the best organized group and 
probably have some of the great- 
est benefits of any minority 
section of their population. 
They all work, and their wages 
are the same as their sighted 
peers — plus the fact that they 
work one hour less per day, as 
do all handicapped, then the 
other workers; also, the fact 
they all receive a pension in 
addition to their wages. We 
were told, and there seemed to 
be evidence, that they had much 
better housing, because the All 
Russian Society for the Blind 
has built new apartments and 
other facilities for the blind 
within the complex where they 
live, and work thus transpor- 
tation and mobility was not a 
problem for blind persons in 
Russia. They apparently have 
most of the same type services 
we have in the U.S.A. but 
certainly not as sof icticated. 
Their factories were very 
modern, automated, and seemed 
to be efficient. One of the 
reasons for their success in 
the industry, was probably 
primarily related to the emphasis 
on professional engineers em- 
ployed to the All Russian 
Society — 256 engineers who 
work solely in product develop- 
ment, plant layout, equipment, 
etc. They readily admitted 
that their greatest problem was 
the lack of varied types of 
employment for blind persons. 
Most of them start to work in 
a factory at the age of 18, and 
usually, other than a possible 



promotion within the plant, 
they work at the same job or 
at the same type of work until 
they retire. 

It was a very enlightening 
and wonderful experience. We 
were very happy to have been 
your official delegate, and of 
course, this was one of the 
most exciting events of the 
past two years. 



Our Challenges for the Future 

At the outset, we indicated 
that it was our opinion, re- 
flections were the cornerstones 
of challenges, and we feel that 
the American Association of 
Workers for the Blind needs to 
be challenged now as it never 
has in the past. What then are 
these challenges? 

1. Are we as an Association 
prepared to meet our financial 
obligations and to carry on 
this essential work without 
dependence upon governmental 
grants and other support 
hitherto available? 

2. Despite the tremendous 
strides in membership, are we 
as public and private agencies 
encouraging our staff to join, 
are we securing membership from 
those who need to belong to the 
American Association of Workers 
for the Blind? — Including 
Agency Membership? 

3 . Are we prepared to support 
good legislation and is our 
voice strong enough to be heard 
in the halls of congress? 



4. Can we, who are in the 
field of work for the blind, 
plead for equal opportunities 
for blind persons and turn about 
with hat in hand and beg for 
special privilege? What is our 
position really going to be for 
the future? 

5. Are we satisfied with the 
format of our conventions and 
the routine pattern into which 
they have fallen, or do we need 
before the next biennial con- 
vention rally to overhaul our 
approach? 

6. How can we continue to 
make regional meetings a viable 
and influential part of this 
Association's activities? 

7. Can we continue to set 
aside the strong leadership of 
the past and to ignore its use- 
fulness in developing the future 
of this Association? 



next decade may well see 
services to the blind and the 
blind themselves relegated to 
oblivion, despite the fact that 
there is some breast beating 
about organizational strength 
from certain quarters. 

Members of the American 
Association of Workers for the 
Blind, this is our brief report 
of two years of stewardship as 
your president, and with this 
accounting at the end of the 
1973 biennial convention, on 
Wednesday afternoon, I will pass 
these challenges along with the 
gavel to your new President, the 
Board of Directors and the 
membership — with the pledge 
that I will continue to assist 
the Association as much as 
possible in the years to come — 
God willing to grant me that 
privilege. 



8. Are we going to be for the 
future the American Association 
of Workers for the Blind with 
Vitality, Strength, Perceptivity, 
Courage and Integrity, or will 
we succiimb to pressures and the 
roughshod tactics of other 
groups and become not only a 
weak voice in the wilderness, 
but perhaps a corpse buried in 
the chaos of unwarranted and 
unnecessary struggle? 



9. Finally, can the services 
to blind persons, and can the 
blind population of this country 
afford the deviousness which now 
exists between agencies and 
organizations of and for the 
blind? If we have not learned 
some hard lessons in the past 
decade, then in our view, the 



MINUTES OF THE 19 7 3 BIENNIAL CONVENTION 



The 1973 biennial National 
Meeting of the American Associ- 
ation of Workers for the Blind 
was held at the Statler Hilton 
Hotel in Cleveland, Ohio, July 
22-25, 1973. More than 800 
members of the Association 
were present to participate 
in the 45th Convention, making 
it one of the largest conven- 
tions in A.A.W.B.'s history. 
Much of the success of this 
convention is due to the dili- 
gent work of the many volunteers , 
the Ohio Chapter of the A.A.W.B. , 
and in particular to Cleo Dolan, 
Mrs. Betty Ravenscraft, and 
members of the Cleveland Society 
for the Blind. 

In spite of several minor 
inconveniences, mostly con- 
cerning room assignments, the 
Convention moved along at a 
rapid pace and activities were 
crammed into every time space 
available. The hospitality 
room remained open for many 
hours each day and the door 
prizes were prolific. 

A Public Relations workshop 
preceded the annual meeting. 
This was the first A.A.W.B. 
sponsored workshop of this 
nature and was extremely well 
attended. This workshop was 
arranged by a committee repre- 
senting Interest Group 8, and 
similar workshops are planned 
for on either a Regional or 
National basis. 



The opening session was 
chaired by Cleo B. Dolan, Presi- 
dent, and the welcoming address 
was given by the Honorable 
Ralph Perk, Mayor of Cleveland. 
Mr. Burt Risley introduced the 
keynote speaker, Mr.. Aria A. 
Malas, Jr., President, Manage- 
ment Services Associates of 
Austin, Texas. Mr. Mallas gave 
an inspirational talk on the 
"Strategies for the Future." 
President Dolan presented 
certificates of appreciation 
for the planning and conducting 
the regional conferences to 
the following: William Ferrell, 
Travis Harris, Sam LoPresti, 
James Riley, Eugene Spurrier, 
McAllister Upshaw, and Berdell 
Wurzburger. Special Awards were 
presented to George Magers , 
Division of Services to the 
Blind, U.S. Department of 
H.E.W., and John Naler, former 
Executive Director of A.A.W.B. 
The session ended with the 
Necrology Committee Report by 
C. Warren Bledsoe. This com- 
mittee name will now be changed 
to History and Memorial Com- 
mittee. 

The first general session 
opened at 9:00 A.M. Monday, 
July 23, with Cleo Dolan 
presiding and Mr. Robert H. 
Whitstock as Chairman. Presi- 
dent Dolan gave his president- 
ial address. This was followed 
by an address by Mr. Cooper 
Sonntag, Deputy Administrator- 
Operations, Rehabilitation 



Services Commission, Columbus, 
Ohio. Mr. Sonntag spoke about 
"Ohio — The Rehabilitation Service 
Commission's Success Story." 
This was followed by the Nomi- 
nating Committee ' s Report by 
Dr. MacFarland and the proposed 
By-Law changes by Mr. Howard 
Hansen. After a short coffee- 
break the meeting was resumed 
with Dr. N. Yoder as Chairman. 
Scientific presentations were 
given by: Dr. James Bliss of 
Telesensory Systems, Inc. — 
Optacon; Dr. Derek Rowel 1, 
Wormald Vigilant Ltd. — Binaural 
Sensors; Dr. T. Benham, Science 
for Blind — Laser Cane; Mr. Larry 
Scadden, Smith- Kettlewell Inst. — 
Vibro-Tactile Perception; Mr. 
Patrick Nye, Hoskins Labora- 
tories — Reading Machines, and 
Dr. Eugene Murphy, Veterans 
Administration — Prosthetic 
Sensory Aids. 

In order to allow members an 
opportunity to attend more than 
one interest group meeting, 
interest groups were scheduled 
to meet in two different time 
blocks. From 1:45 p.m. to 3:15 
p.m. Interest Groups 1,2,3,6 
and 9 had their meetings, and 
from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m.. Groups 
4,5,8 and 10 met. The Presi- 
dential Reception was an elabo- 
rate affair and was held from 
5:30-7:00 p.m. Groups 3 and 9 
had an additional meeting at 
8:00 p.m. and the evening 
closed with a mixer that 
started at 9:00 p.m. 

The second general session 
started at 10:30 a.m., with 
Cleo Dolan presiding and Dr. 
MacFarland acting as Chairman. 
However, preceding this session 
many social events and tours 



were scheduled and this later 
starting date enabled several 
chapters to hold board meetings. 
The main speaker at the second 
general session was Mr. Corbett 
Reedy, Deputy Commissioner of 
the Rehabilitation Service 
Administration. Mr. Reedy gave 
an informative talk on "Objec- 
tives for S.R.S. in the 70's." 
Dr. Arnall Patz of the John 
Hopkins Hospital also presented 
a topical address on "The 
Challenge of Diabetes as a 
Cause of Blindness in the 1970' s." 
Mr. Irvin P. Schloss gave the 
Legislative Committee Report 
and the session terminated with 
the acceptance of nominations 
from the floor. 

The third general session 
started at 1:30 p.m., with 
Mr. Ross Purse as Chairman. 
Three very interesting and 
informative speakers were on 
the program. Mr. George E. 
Klinkhamer, State Service 
Coordinator, Office of Edu- 
cation, H.E.W. , spoke on 
"Career Education — Implications 
for the Blind. "

President Canadian Council of 
the Blind remarked concerning 
"The Canadian Council of the 
Blind — Its Purpose and Function." 
Interest group meetings finished 
the remainder of the busy after- 
noon with Groups 1,2,3,6, and 9 
meeting from 3:45-5:15. The 
Ambrose M. Shotwell Award 
Banquet, with an overflow 



10 



crowd, was held in the Grand Ball- 
room. The Shotwell Distinguished 
Service Award was presented to 
Mr. Robert Bray, former Chief of 
the Division for the Blind and 
Visually Handicapped, Library of 
Congress, Washington, D.C. 

During the banquet Dr. - 
MacFarland announced the re- 
sults of the elections: Presi-

The luncheon was very well 
attended. Mr. Roy Kumpe 
presented the Membership 
Committee report. He an- 
nounced that the A.A.W.B. mem- 
bership was the largest in the 
Association's history, exceding 
the 3,370 level. The A.A.W.B. "s 
Past President's Award went to 
the Oklahoma Chapter of A.A.W.B. 
The Alfred Allen Award was

AAWB-AEVH-NBA BRAILLE AUTHORITY REPORT 

Bernard M. Krebs 

Librarian, Jewish Guild for the Blind, 

New York, New York 



13 



Substantial progress has been 
achieved during the past year in 
developing and expanding braille 
codes to meet the requirements 
of braille publishers, tran- 
scribers, students, and readers. 
The Revised Textbook Code, the 
Revised Mathematics Code, and 
the new Computer Code have added 
a wealth of necessary informa- 
tion in both symbols and tech- 
niques. With this material at 
hand, publications in braille 
will more accurately transmit 
the basic style and nuances of 
inkprint publications to the 
braille reader. 

With the expended use of the 
International Braille Music 
Code, braille transcribers have 
raised many questions concerning 
the prescribed techniques and 
accuracy of intelligible pre- 
sentation. The Braille Authori- 
ty and its Advisory Committee on 
Braille Music Notation have been 
gathering comments and sug- 
gestions from the field and have 
undertaken the study of possible 
clarifications or revision. As 
the study progresses, inter- 
national consideration will be 



requested for any rule or 
principle which is shown to be 
ineffective or confusing. 

The National Braille Associ- 
ation has joined AEVH and AAWB 
in sponsoring the work of the 
Braille Authority. Since a 
great wealth of general and 
technical works are provided 
through the outstanding services 
of volunteer braille tran- 
scribers, the added sponsor- 
ship of NBA will bring an 
invaluable body of experience 
and know-how which will aid 
in guiding the Braille Authori- 
ty toward achieving its goal 
of providing efficient and 
effective braille codes to the 
field.

REPORT OF THE LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE 

Irvin P. Schloss, Vice Chairman 

Coordinator of Governmental Relations, 

American Foundation for the Blind 



Following his election as 
President of AAWB, Mr. Cleo B. 
Dolan appointed a Legislative 
Committee consisting of Dr. 
Peter J. Salmon, chairman; 
Irvin P. Schloss, vice chair- 
man; Mary K. Baiaman; William 
T. Coppage; Joseph Kohn; Roy 
Kumpe; and Burt Risley. Mr. 
Dolan also appointed advisors 
to the Legislative Committee 
as follows: M. Robert Barnett, 
Executive Director, American 
Foundation for the Blind; 
Robert S. Bray, Chief, Division 
for the Blind and Physically 
Handicapped, Library of Congress; 
Finis E. Davis, Vice President 
and General Manager, American 
Printing House for the Blind; 
John F. Nagle, Chief, Washington 
Office, National Federation of 
the Blind, and Frederick Picard, 
III, Executive Director, Carroll 
Rehabilitation Center for the 
Visually Impaired. 

During the period of this 
report from July 1971 to July 
1973, the Legislative Committee 
met twice to discuss pending 
legislation and reaffiirm past 
positions on major items, such 
as welfare reform and vocational 
rehabilitation. The past two 
years have been characterized 
by continued effective coopera- 
tion in the development and 
support of legislation by the 
American Association of Workers 
for the Blind, the American 
Council of the Blind, American 
Foundation for the Blind, Blinded 



Veterans Association, National 
Council of State Agencies for 
the Blind and the National 
Federation of the Blind. 

Social Security and 
Welfare Reform 

On January 20, 1972, the vice 
chairman testified on behalf of 
AAWB as well as AFB and BVA on 
proposed improvements in the 
Social Security Act before the 
Senate Committee on Finance. 

Public Law 92-336, which in- 
creased the ceiling on the 
national debt, also contained 
a 20% across-the-board increase 
in social security cash benefits 
effective September 1, 1972. It 
also increased the taxable wage 
base and established a mechanism 
for automatic increases in the 
wage base and cash benefits 
based on increases in the Con- 
siomer Price Index. At the end 
of the 92nd Congress, Public 
Law 92-503 was enacted making 
major improvements in the 
Social Security Act. Of major 
significance to AAWB are the 
following improvements: 

1. Coverage of individuals 
entitled to cash disability 
insurance benefits for two 
years for medicare benefits; 

2. Liberalization of entitle- 
ment of blind persons to disa- 
bility insurance cash benefits 
by elimination of the require- 



15 



ment of 20 out of 40 quarters 
preceding the onset of disa- 
bility in covered employment. 

3. Federalization of the 
adult public assistance programs 
of aid to the aged, blind, and 
disabled with cash benefits for 
an eligible individual beginning 
at $130 monthly effective 
January 1, 1974 and $195 monthly 
for an eligible couple. 

4. Mandatory referral of all 
blind and disabled public as- 
sistance recipients under 55 
for vocational rehabilitation 
services, with the Federal 
Government covering the full 
cost of such services. 

In the future, the Legisla- 
tive Committee proposes to con- 
tinue advocating further liber- 
alization of disability insurance 
provisions for the blind to per- 
mit blind persons with six 
quarters in covered employment 
to receive cash benefits without 
regard to their ability to 
engage in substantial gainful 
activity. In addition, the 
Committee will continue to 
advocate liberalization of 
financing of and stricter state 
plan provisions in maternal and 
child health and crippled 
children's services under Title 
V of the Social Security Act to 
assure more effective preventive 
and ameliorative services for 
children with vision problems. 

On July 11, 1973, the Presi- 
dent signed P.L. 93-66, a bill 
extending the Renegotiation Act, 
which included additional major 
improvements in the Social 
Security Act affecting blind 
persons. The new law increases 



cash OASDI Social Security 
benefits by 5.6% effective 
June 1, 1974. It also improves 
the new Federalized public 
assistance programs (Supple- 
mental Security Income for the 
Aged, Blind and Disabled) , 
Medicaid, and social services 
provisions as follows: 

1. Increases the new supple- 
mental security income benefit 
for the aged, blind, and dis- 
abled from $130 to $140 a month 
for an individual and from $195 
to $210 a month for an eligible 
couple, effective July 1, 1974. 
The new SSI program supplants 
the existing Federal-state 
public assistance program for 
the aged, blind and disabled 
next January 1st with the lower 
direct Federal cash payments 
cited. 

2. Includes in the SSI 
program for cash payments after 
next January 1st an "essential 
person" in the household of an 
aged, blind, or disabled indi- 
vidual covered under the 
existing Federal-state program 
on December 31, 1973. This 
means that the spouse of an 
aged, blind, or disabled indi- 
vidual will be covered without 
also having to be 65, blind, 

or disabled. 

3. Assures that no aged, 
blind, or disabled person will 
receive lower cash benefits 
under the new SSI program than 
he is presently receiving under 
the existing Federal-state 
public assistance program by 
making State supplementation 
mandatory except for Texas , 
which has a constitutional 
prohibition. 



16 



4. Authorizes determination 
of blindness for SSI eligi- 
bility to be made by an optome- 
trist as well as an ophthalmol- 
ogist. 

5. Protects essential per- 
sons, individuals in medical 
institutions, and medically 
needy blind and disabled per- 
sons against loss of medicaid 
benefits under Title XIX of the 
Social Security Act owing to 
higher SSI benefits. 

5. Assures individuals no 
longer eligible for cash as- 
sistance under the SSI program 
owing to higher OASDI social 
security benefits of medicaid 
entitlement through June 1975. 

7. Defers from July 1 until 
November 1 the effective date 

of controversial social services 
administrative regulations un- 
less the Department of Health, 
Education, and Welfare proposes 
modified regulations acceptable 
to a majority of the House 
Committee on Ways and Means 
and the Senate Committee on 
Finance. - ' • 

8. Exempts the aged, blind, 
and disabled from the statutory 
requirement that 90% of funds 
spent for social services must 
be used for cash recipients. 



Appropriations 

Public Law 93-50, which makes 
supplemental appropriations for 
fiscal year 1973 included an 
earmarked appropriation of $5 
million for construction of the 
National Center for Deaf-Blind 
Youths and Adults. It also 



increased the item for grants 
to the States for public as- 
sistance to $590 million and 
added $13.8 million for the 
education of handicapped 
children. 

A major improvement in the 
Books for the Blind and Physi- 
cally Handicapped program 
administered by the Library of 
Congress was included in the 
bill making appropriations for 
the legislative branch for 
fiscal year 1974 by the Senate 
Committee on Appropriations as 
a result of the united effort 
of all of the major national 
organizations of and for the 
blind. Funds to establish two 
multi-state storage centers 
and initiate a computerized 
national bibliographic service 
to be operated by the Division 
for the Blind and Physically 
Handicapped at the Library of 
Congress were included by the 
Senate but will be subject to 
approval by the House of 
Representatives . 



Randolph-Sheppard Act 
Amendments 

Representatives of all of the 
major national organizations of 
and for the blind testified in 
support of legislation to 
improve the Randolph-Sheppard 
Vending Stand Act before the 
Subcommittee on the Handicapped 
of the Senate Committee on 
Labor and Public Welfare. 
Government union representa- 
tives continued to oppose the 
legislation. Recommended 
improvements were included by 
Senate in amendments extending 
and improving the Vocational 



17 



■Rehabilitation Act but were 
deleted in conference when the 
bill, H.R. 8395, was sent to 
the President in October 1972. 

Action on amendments to the 
Randolph-Sheppard Act during 
the 93rd Congress has been 
deferred pending completion of 
an investigation by the General 
Accounting Office of vending 
machine installation and in- 
come by and for Government 
employee unions. The GAO report 
is expected around the middle 
of August 1973. 



Vocational Rehabilitation 

The greatest disappointment of 
this two-year report period was 
the action by the President of 
twice vetoing major legislation 
substantially improving the 
Federal-state vocational reha- 
bilitation program. Representa- 
tives of AAWB and the other 
national organizations of and 
for the blind working together 
with organizations representing 
the interests of other handi- 
capped groups had labored to 
develop substantial improve- 
ments, most of which were 
included by the Congress in 
the two bills vetoed by the 
President in the fall of 1972 
and again in the spring of 
1973. 

A substantially reduced bill, 
H.R. 8070, the Rehabilitation 
Act of 1973, was passed by the 
House of Representatives on 
June 5, 1973. It extends the 
existing Federal-state program 
through June 30, 1975, with 
substantially reduced author- 
izations of appropriations 
compared to the vetoed bills. 



Perhaps the most significant 
improvement from the stand- 
point of blind persons is the 
requirement of priority in 
services for the severely 
handicapped. 

S. 1875, the Senate bill 
reported on July 16, 1973, 
contains lower authorizations 
of appropriations. It pro- 
vides for special emphasis in 
services for the severely 
handicapped in contrast to the 
clear priority in the House 
bill. Both bills authorize 
special project grants for 
vocational rehabilitation 
services for older blind per- 
sons in contrast to the more 
comprehensive provisions in 
the two vetoed bills, which 
did not limit these projects 
to vocational rehabilitation. 
On July 18, the Senate passed 
H.R. 8070 after substituting 
the provisions of S. 1875 for 
the House-passed version. 
Congressional staff are hope- 
ful that action can be com- 
pleted on this legislation 
before the August recess. 



Education of the 
Handicapped 

The vice chairman testified 
this spring before the Sub- 
committee on the Handicapped 
of the Senate Committee on 
Labor and Piiblic Welfare and 
the Subcommittee on Select 
Education of the House Com- 
mittee on Education and Labor 
in support of legislation 
extending and improving the 
Education of the Handicapped 
Act. On June 25, 1973, the 
Senate passed S. 896, a bill 
extending the Act for three 



18 



years through June 30, 1976. 
The bill increases authori- 
zation of appropriations for 
the various programs under the 
Act over actual current spend- 
ing levels in realistic fashion 
to permit orderly growth. The 
appropriation for the Education 
of the Handicapped Act for the 
fiscal year 1973 was $143.6 
million and the House of 
Representatives has approved 
an identical amount for the 
current fiscal year. The bill 
also provides for improvements 
in State plans to assure 
identification and evaluation 
of all handicapped children 
in each State. 

The House of Representatives 
has not yet completed action 
on similar legislation. 



escort services; homemaker, 
home health, and shopping 
services; reader services; 
letter writing services; and 
other services to assist such 
individuals to lead more 
independent lives. 



Air Travel Concessions 

On June 15, 1972 and again on 
May 8, 1973, the vice chairman 
testified in support of legis- 
lation which would authorize 
airlines to transport handi- 
capped individuals at reduced 
fares in accordance with 
previously approved Legisla- 
tive Committee policy. In 
both cases, the hearings were 
held by the Subcommittee on 
Aviation of the Senate Com- 
mittee on Commerce. 



Older Americans Act 

On May 3, the President signed 
Public Law 93-29, the Older 
Americans Comprehensive Services 
Amendments of 1973. A sub- 
stantially stronger bill was 
pocket-vetoed by the President 
at the end of the 92nd Congress. 
It authorizes appropriations of 
$543.6 million for FY 1973 
through FY 1975. 

Of particular importance to 
AAWB members in the provision 
for special services to older 
handicapped individuals con- 
tained in the model project 
provisions of the law. These 
were developed and supported 
by the representatives of all 
of the major national organi- 
zations of and for the blind. 
These special services include: 
special transportation and 



On July 18, 1973, the Senate 
Commerce Committee ordered the 
bill reported which "would 
authorize airlines to grant 
reduced air fares on a space 
available basis to the elderly 
and to youth and on a confirmed 
space basis to the handicapped. 
It is doubtful that the Senate 
will complete action before the 
August recess. The House of 
Representatives has not yet 
acted on similar legislation.

REPORT OF THE NECROLOGY COMMITTEE' 



Warren Bledsoe, Chairman 
Consultant to the Office for the Blind and Visually 
Handicapped, U.S. Rehabilitation Services Administration 



without objection from the 
members, your Necrology Committee 
would appreciate this report 
being received as part of the 
Proceedings of this convention, 
subject to any additions that 
may be necessary. In offering 
it I would like to say that I 
have accepted the chairmanship 
of this committee not from 
preoccupation with death, but 
with life. Toward that end I 
have said that I hope its name 
and mission can be changed to 
the History and Memorial Com- 
mittee, a proposal to be brought 
up and discussed at the proper 
time. 

I would like now to read a 
roster of our colleagues who 
have been parted from us by 
death since the last meeting. 
In so doing I would like to 
point out that they gave col- 
lectively more than 500 years

II and later in the Surgeon 
General's Office in Washington 
was vigorous and demanding as 
well as successful in speaking 
truth to power with respect to 
the need for a special reha- 
bilitation program for blinded 
soldiers and thus was the 
guiding force which resulted in 
the services made available for 
them at Valley Forge, Dibble 
and Avon. He was also author 
of a classic guide for Layman 
entitled "The Truth About Your 
Eyes. " 



All persons listed above have 
been members of the AAWB. I 
would like also to include 
certain venerable and eminent 
individuals who in the course 
of service to humanity have 
made valuable special contri- 
butions answering the needs of 
blind people. 

Dr. Harry Best (1881-1971) , 
a leading sociologist and 
professor of sociology, was 
the author of the definitive 
sociological work "Blindness 
and the Blind in the United

Medal for this outstanding 
contribution to the field of 
work for the blind.

Dr. Derrick Tilton Vail (1899- 
1973) as chief consultant in 
ophthalmology during World War 



It has been said elsewhere 
that our field is composed of 
hewers and hawlers, inventors, 
counselors of state, shining 
examples , cynosures and status 
figures. 

The status figures often 
receive less notice from our 
field than do individuals 
playing any of the other roles. 
Yet they may briefly come on 
the scene to say or do some- 
thing so decisive that the 
whole course of events is 
determined by them. There is 
one such individual who died 
during the last two years 
whose name should be placed 
at the end of this roster. On 
May 31st 1949 President Harry 
Truman signed a memorandum 
approving a training program 
for blinded veterans at Hines 
Hospital. The question of the 
center had been the subject of 
administrative controversy for 
months , leading to the need for 
a presidential decision. Presi- 
dent Truman was at Independence, 
Missouri, at the time for the 
purpose of attending his 
mother ' s funeral , but a memo- 
randum asking for approval of 
the Hines Center was flown out 



23 



to him along with other papers. 
With characteristic dispatch it 
came back the next day, giving 
approval for the center. From 
that action all programs stemming 
from the Hines program of Russ 
Williams, Don Blasch and John 
Malamagian may be said to have 
stemmed. 

Mr. President of this Associ- 
ation and Mr. Chairman of this 
Meeting, I do not know how many 
of our membership believe in 
the immortality of the soul. 
I for one do. In this con- 
nection I would like to add a 
brief ancecdote to this report. 

America's great good friend 
General Lafayette was of course 
a revolutionary, an 18th Century 
liberal and a free thinker. And 
he was as such an agnostic all 
his life. His wife all her life 
followed him in everything but 
this. Straight through the 
Revolution, the terror and the 
restoration she never gave up 
the religion of her girlhood. 
When it was known that she was 
dying both her confessor and 
the doctor told both husband 



and wife what was about to 
happen. Significant question- 
ing and answering glances 
passed between them. Hers 
said "Can't you change your 
mind now?" His, even in this 
extremity, said, "I am very 
sorry, but I cannot." 

So then she spoke aloud and 
said, "Well, I shall be very 
busy for you." 

Mr. Chairman, I believe as 
did Abraham Lincoln, that God 
intends the Universal Salvation 
of mankind. And I believe that 
these friends and colleagues 
whose actions we have noted so 
briefly, whether a trillion 
miles away or in another 
dimension at our elbows are 
by their very natures busy for 
us , and that they would bid us 
not to be sad in their behalf, 
but have a joyful convention 
and make joyful noises. There- 
fore, I abstain from asking for 
the usual minute of silence in 
their honour. 

Instead I would like to quote 
John Donne : 



Death be not proud, though some have called thee 

Mighty and dreadfull, for, thou art not so. 

For, those, whom thou think 'st, thou dost overthrow. 

Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill me. 

From rest and sleepe, which but thy pictures bee. 

Much pleasure, then from thee, much more must flow. 

And soonest our best men with thee doe goe. 

Rest of their bones, and soules deliverie. 

Thou art slave to Fate, Chance, kings, and desperate men, 

And dost with poyson, warre, and sicknesse dwell. 

And poppie, or charmes can make us sleepe as well, 

And better then thy stroake; why swell 'st thou then; 

One short sleepe past, wee wake eternally, 

And death shall be no more; death, thou shalt die.

REPORT OF THE WORLD COUNCIL FOR THE 
WELFARE OF THE BLIND 

M. Robert Barnett 

Vice President of the World Council for the Welfare 

of the Blind and Chairman of the United 

States Delegation 



since the last report to the 
American Association of Workers 
for the Blind on behalf of the 
World Council for the Welfare 
of the Blind at the Richmond 
Convention in 1971, some changes 
have occurred in the make-up of 
the United States Delegation. 
The six organizations who have 
representative members on the 
Delegation have not themselves 
changed, but certain of the 
individuals whom they nominate 
have been succeeded by others. 



American Association of 
Workers for the Blind 



Cleo B. 
Ohio 



Dolan; Cleveland, 



Association for Education of 
the Visually Handicapped 
Carl Davis; Watertown, 
Massachusetts 



National Federation of the 
Blind 

Kenneth Jernigan; Des Moines, 
Iowa 



As of this report, the current 
members of the United States 
Delegation are: 



American Council of the Blind 
Floyd Quails; Oklahoma City, 
Oklahoma 



29 



Blinded Veterans Association 
James F. C. Hyde; Washington, 
D.C. 



American Foundation for the 
Blind 

M. Robert Barnett; New York, 
New York 



Of the above group, two were 
part of the North American Dele- 
gation of the World Council for 
the Welfare of the Blind Execu- 
tive Committee Meeting at Moscow 
in May 1972. They were Messrs. 
Dolan and Barnett, and at the 
time. Judge Reese Robrahn, then 
president of the American Council 
of the Blind. Other North Ameri- 
can members of the Executive 
Committee were Sra. Elisa d'Stahl 
of Guatamala and Mr. Arthur 
Magill of Canada. 

Many matters of professional 
policy and WCWB administrative 
affairs were reviewed at the 
Moscow meeting, but since these 
details are readily available in 
other publications, there is no 
need to repeat them in this 
report. 

It is especially important, 
however, to note that it was 
decided to hold the next quin- 
quennial general assembly at 
Sao Paulo, Brazil, in August 
1974. This will be the first 
time in nearly a quarter of a 
century of its existence that 
the Council's assembly will occur 
in Latin America. Not only is 
it vital that the United States 
be represented by its official 
delegation, but also it would 
be of considerable value if 
other North Americans could 
arrange to attend as observers. 
Individuals wishing more infor- 
mation about the local arrange- 



ments or the assembly program 
should contact either the Chair- 
man of the United States Dele- 
gation, who is

Those who have had opportuni- 
ties to participate in these 
meetings have found them to be 
highly stimulating, as well as 
informative. In fact, there is 
a noticeable increase among 
Americans in work for the blind 
about international activities, 
and the Brazil meeting should be 
a dramatic opportunity to get 
better- acquainted, especially 
with our Latin American neigh- 
bors. 

One other development should 
be reported. Using the auspice 
of the American Foundation for 
Overseas Blind, a meeting was 
arranged in New York City on 
April 17, 1973 of representa- 
tives of government, sectarian 
and other voluntary organizations 
in the United States , who 



30 

include some kind of aid to blind the future in the exchange of 

persons in foreign countries in information and possible coordi- 

their programs. The meeting nation of effort. 

resulted in greater knowledge of 

each other's activities and poll- Respectfully s\ibmitted,

MEMBERSHIP LUNCHEON 



1973 AAWB MEMBERSHIP REPORT 

Roy Kuirpe/ L.L.D. , Agency Membership Chairman 
Executive Director, Arkansas Enterprises for the Blind, Inc. 



The American Association of 
Workers for the Blind has again 
shown a substantial increase in 
its membership. The leadership 
under Mr. Cleo Dolan as President 
and Mr. Charles Hoehne as general 
membership chairman has been 
strong and active. However, the 
major portion of the credit for 
such an outstanding membership 
year goes to the chapter and 
non-chapter membership chairman 
and their committees, who are 
the driving force in membership 
recruitment. 

Looking back ten years, the 
membership of AAWB was 1,194. 
Five years ago the membership 
was 1,526 and today we have 
3,375 individual members. Our 
membership has doubled in the 
last five years and has doubled 
in the last five years and has 
increased by over 550 members 
since our last biennial meeting. 

At this time I would like to 
present in numerical order the 
individual membership standing 



of the chapter and non-chapter 
units.

PRESENTATION OF 
THE ALFRED ALLEN AWARD 

To 

J. Kenneth Cozier 



Presentation by 

Peter J. Salmon 
The Industrial Home for the Blind 



J. Kenneth Cozier 

J. Kenneth Cozier, who lost his 
left eye at two, and all but five 
percent vision in his right eye 
when he was in his late 40' s, is 
a successful businessman who has 
also been a leader in raising 
standards of services for blind 
people. He has been president 
of the Cleveland Society for the 
Blind, a member of the Ohio Com- 
mission for the Blind, a trustee 
of the Ohio Society for the Pre- 
vention of Blindness and is a 
trustee of the American Foundation 
for the Blind. Perhaps more im- 
portant than any of these, he 
served as a member of the Com- 
mission on Standards and Ac- 
creditation of Services for the 



Blind (COMSTAC) which developed 
and codified the first nation- 
ally accepted standards for the 
management and programs of 
agencies and schools for blind 
Americans. In addition to his 
overall participation in the 
work of COMSTAC, he served on 
the COMSTAC Committee on Stand- 
ards for Library Services. 
These standards were later 
officially adopted and dis- 
seminated by the American 
Library Association as well 
as being included in the 
standards administered by NAC. 

He was a member of the Board 
of the National Accreditation 
Council, COMSTAC 's successor, 
from its inception, serving as 



33 



treasurer and later as Vice 
President. He left the Board 
in June, 1973, in accordance 
with NAC's policy of rotation. 
Both on COMSTAC and NAC he 
worked vigorously for standards 
that would assure sound finan- 
cial management and public ac- 
countability of agencies for 
blind people. As a layman he 
pointed out to AAWB the pro- 
fessional's responsibility for 
improving services and respect- 
ing the integrity of every blind 
person. At the same time he 
has worked for better services 
for all disadvantaged people as 
the list below attests. He has 
been a modest leader who has 
quietly made many contributions 
to religious and social work 
agencies. He has jokingly said 
that whatever financial success 



he may have had was due to the 
fact that, with less sight, he 
could concentrate better. His 
leadership and support have been 
an important factor in continued 
efforts to strengthen and improve 
services to blind people nation- 
wide . 

He has received the following 
awards : 

Distinguished Service Award — 

Cleveland Welfare Federation 
Distinguished Service Award — 

University of Nebraska 
Distinguished Service Award — 

United Appeal of Cleveland 
Man of the Year Award — The 

Plymouth Church of Shaker

ACCEPTANCE OF THE ALFRED ALLEN AWARD 
J. Kenneth Cozier 



A very pleasant good afternoon 
to all of you. Thank you Peter 
for those very generous remarks. 
I wish they were all deserved. 

There was an old English custom 
where the oldest member of the 
family inherited "all the wealth, 
the second oldest all the brains 
and the third oldest all the 
beauty. I hasten 'to say I am 
the youngest of seven children. 

I am deeply touched by this 
significant award but I feel I 
am hardly deserving in receiving 
it for I know there are many 
other volunteers in America and 
Canada that are more deserving 
than I. Nevertheless I will 
remember this moment and cherish 
this award for the rest of my 
life. 

I would like to think this 
award is not given to me alone 
but that I received it on behalf 
of all the volunteers of America 
and Canada. Those very devoted 
people who give so much of their 
energy, time, thought, and 
substance to improving the work 
for the blind. They are God's 
children and will have many stars 
in their crown when they go to 



heaven. There are quite a number 
of volunteers in the audience 
today and I would like to have 
them stand and let ' s give them a 
hardy round of applause. 

Also I would be thoroughly 
remiss if I did not offer a 
generous and enthusiastic acco- 
lade to the professional people 
here today. Those highly trained 
individuals who with their skill, 
understanding, dedication, and 
patience do so much to help the 
newly blinded person to restore 
his confidence and regain his 
successful place in the main- 
stream of life. You are great 
people and must be very happy 
for as you know happiness stems 
from two main sources; one the 
sense of accomplishment and the 
other providing service to your 
fellowmen. You can and do 
experience both. Congratulations 
and our heartfelt thanks for the 
marvelous work you are doing for 
the blind. My hat is off to you. 

Thanks again from the bottom 
of my heart for this award and 
this exciting moment. Now I am 
going to sit down before I fall 
off cloud 9.

PRESENTATION OF THE JOHN H. McAULAY AWARD 

To 

Nicholas Williams 

Formally with Internal Revenue Service as Coordinator 

for the Employment of the Handicapped 



Presentation by 

Georqe Magers 

Specialist, Division of Services for the Blind, 

Rehabilitation Services Administration 



It is, indeed, both a privi- 
lege and a pleasure to partici- 
pate in the AAWB Awards Ceremony 
during the membership luncheon 
this year. It is especially 
gratifying to be able to present 
the John H. McAulay Award to a 
person who has exhibited the 
kind of interest and dedication 
which was close to Mr. McAulay 's 
heart. 

All of us in vocational reha- 
bilitation deeply appreciate 
employers and their personnel 
officials who become true 
believers in the philosophy 
that employing well-trained, 
qualified blind persons is 
good business. Nick Williams, 
in his work in the central 
office of the Personnel Divi- 
sion, Internal Revenue Service, 
has certainly demonstrated his 
belief in hiring blind people. 
For a decade he has devoted 
both time and effort beyond 
the normal call of duty in the 
business of fostering the suc- 
cessful rehabilitation of blind 
and visually handicapped 
Americans. Please permit me 
to summarize just a few of 
these efforts. 



In the early 60' s, he com- 
menced his efforts with the 
development of a personnel 
manual chapter specifically 
aimed at the selection and 
employment of blind persons 
within the Internal Revenue 
Service. This was the first 
such effort for specific 
personnel procedures within 
any Federal agency. 

He was a stimulating force 
in the development of the 
program for the selection, 
training, and placement of 
blind persons as taxpayer 
service representatives. His 
continued interest and personal 
efforts have brought this pro- 
gram to the point where IRS 
now employs more than 100 TSRs 
and that agency has recently 
indicated a commitment to 
increase that program to in- 
clude an additional 100 em- 
ployees. 

Nick Williams was one of the 
moving forces behind the 
development and implementation 
of what has become to be known 
as the Washington Conference 
on the Employment of the Blind 



36 



in the Federal Government. This 
is just another example of how 
this man has helped to stimulate 
the employment of blind and 
visually handicapped persons in 
a widening range of Federal 
agencies. 



Nick, the AAWB, meaning all of 
us who know and love you , are 
proud to present the 1973 John H, 
McAulay Award to you.

JOHN H. McAULAY AVJARD 



To 



NICHOLAS WILLIAMS 



For Outstanding 
Achievement in the Placement 
of 
Blind Persons 

1973 



ACCEPTANCE OF THE JOHN H. McAULAY AWARD 
Nicholas Williams 



I am deeply humble and grateful 
for being honored on this occasion 
as the 1973 recipient of the 
McAulay Award. All this is possi- 
ble through the inspiration and 
leadership of such men as Roy 
Kumpe, George Magers, whose com- 
ments today in making the presen- 
tation have been most gracious 
and over-generous. Without them 
and many others throughout the 



land, this would not have been 
possible. Not the least of 
these is Dr. Douglas McFarland, 
with whom I made a trip in 1966 
to Little Rock in connection 
with the possibility of start- 
ing a program to train the blind 
as Taxpayer Service Representa- 
tives. With this humble start 
two blind persons were trained 
at the Arkansas Enterprises for

the Blind in Little Rock. Since 
1967, over 100 blind Taxpayer 
Service Representatives have 
been trained and placed in 
Revenue Service offices in 40 
states of the Union. It was 
Fred Johnson, now retired but 
then the IRS District Director 
in Little Rock, who conceived 
the idea that the blind could 
function as "TSRs" as well as 
the sighted. 

This award is emblematic of 
the hundreds of Revenue employees 
who have been dedicated to make 
this program the success, in 
some measure, that it is. Al- 
ready the IRS has dedicated it- 
self to training and placing 



another 100 or more blind 
employees in the forseeable 
future. Past is prologue. I 
accept this award with the 
knowledge that it was made 
possible through the outstanding 
leadership of the members of 
AAWB where excellence prevails 
and those dedicated civil ser- 
vants in Revenue Service who 
have given encouragement and 
who continue beyond the horizon 
in working cooperatively and 
effectively with the blind, 
knowing full well that they are 
as effective as the sighted. 
This award is really symbolic 
of the many challenges that lie 
ahead. I am deeply humble and 
appreciative . 



PRESENTATION OF THE PAST PRESIDENTS AWARD 

To 

Oklahoma Chapter 
Accepted by 



Jerry Maynard, President of the Oklahoma Chapter 
of the American Association of Workers for the Blind, Inc, 

Presentation by 

Louis Leines, Jr., Director 
Health and Social Services Division, Office 
of Civil Rights, Department of Health, Education and 
Welfare, Washington, D.C. 



I was delighted when President 
Dolan asked me to present the 
first Past President's Award. 
First, because it gives me the 
opportunity to renew acquaintance 
with so many old friends with 
whom I used to work on a regular 
basis, but of more importance, 
because I think the Past Presi- 
dent 's Award symbolizes the change 
which has taken place in the 
philosophy of the American As- 
sociation of Workers for the 
Blind over the past decade. This 
change recognizes that the true 
strength and effectiveness of the 
Organization is dependent upon the 
interest, dedication, and support 
of individual members working 
together through State Chapters. 
This makes it possible for the 
vitality of the Association to 
flow from the grass roots up to 
the national leadership so that 
the decisions and the actions of 
the national leadership are based 
upon a realistic understanding 
of what blind people need and 
want. 



Two years ago in Richmond, 
the Committee of Past Presi- 
dents met at the suggestion of 
Norm Yoder to consider what 
action it could take through 
the establishment of an award 
supported by the past Presi- 
dents which would be of greatest 
significance to the Association. 
Several alternatives for indi- 
vidual awards were considered, 
but it was unanimously agreed 
that the development of strong 
State Chapters was the single, 
most important factor in 
assuring the ever increasing 
vitality, influence, and 
responsiveness of the Associ- 
ation as a whole. It was, 
therefore, recommended by the 
past Presidents and approved 
by the Board of Directors that 
the Past President ' s Award 
would be presented to that 
Chapter which during the year 
had made the most significant 
steps in the following areas: 
growth of membership, inno- 
vation in program content and 



39 



participation in legislative 
activities of concern to blind 
people. It is our hope that 
competition for this Award will 
be keen, for the keener the 
competition the greater the 
success of AAWB. 

It is with real pleasure that 
I present to Mr. Jerry Maynard, 



representing the Oklahoma 
Chapter of the AAWB, the first 
Past President's Award recog- 
nizing the outstanding achieve- 
ments of the Oklahoma Chapter. 
All of the Past Presidents join 
me, Jerry, in extending to 
every member of your Chapter 
our heartiest congratulations. 



ACCEPTANCE OF THE PAST PRESIDENT'S AWARD 



Jerry Maynard 



Mr. President, honored guests, 
and fellow AAWB members : Okla- 
homa is very proud to be the 
first recipient of the Past 
President's Award. We are 
especially grateful to Roy Kiimpe 
for his interest and help in 
making the Oklahoma Chapter a 
reality. 

Four years ago there were only 
two AAWB members in our state. 
Then in 1969 a small group of us 
started a membership drive to 
see if we could get enough sup- 
port to form a chapter. In 1970, 
with 65 members, we received our 
chapter. 

Each year we have been able to 
show a substantial growth in 
membership as this year we have 
207 members. We have high inter- 
est and excellent support from 
our local members. Each year 
we have held annual state 
meetings and hosted the regional 
meeting in Oklahoma City in 
June, 1972. 

We believe that in order to 
have a viable organization 



with fewer dropouts you must 
keep the membership informed 
and on a personal basis. For 
this reason we initiated a 
quarterly newsletter in 
October, 1971. We have had 
good response and participation 
in this endeavor. Through the 
newsletter we are able to give 
personal glimpses of individual 
members and keep them informed 
of chapter projects which we 
think contributes to a more 
cohesive membership. Also, 
particular attention is given 
to news articles showing how 
AAWB is working for its members. 

In order to continue growth 
we have instituted three poli- 
cies. First, we present mem- 
berships to the graduating 
seniors at the Oklahoma School 
for the Blind. Second, we also 
present memberships to trainees 
completing vending stand train- 
ing. The cost to the chapter 
is minimal if you can gain an 
active member. Third, our best 
means of gaining new members 
is by individual word of mouth. 
We have an active membership 



40 



drive each year relying on work Again, thank you for honoring 
at the local level. We believe us with the Past President's 
in AAWB and the Oklahoma Chapter Award, 
will continue to strive to 
promote the purposes and goals 
of AAWB.

AWARD BANQUET 



PRESENTATION OF THE AMBROSE M. SHOTWELL 
MEMORIAL MEDAL AND SCROLL 



To 



ROBERT S. BRAY 
Former Chief of the Division for the Blind and 
Physically Handicapped, Library of Congress 



PRESENTATION BY 



Irvin P. Schloss 

Coordinator of Governmental Relations, American 

Foundation for the Blind, Inc. 



Ladies and gentlemen, it is 
both a great honor and a source 
of deep personal satisfaction for 
me to present the Ambrose M. 
Shotwell Distinguished Service 
Award of the American Association 
of Workers for the Blind to 
Robert Stuart Bray, the man whose 
outstanding leadership has made 
library service a reality for 
many thousands of blind and 
severely handicapped people in 
the United States. It is always 
personally satisfying to pay 
public tribute to a good friend 
and respected colleague. But in 
this case, I also happen to be 
an avid consiomer of library 
service for the blind. I want — 
on this occasion — for myself and 
for several hundred thousand 
other blind people to say, 
"Thank you. Bob Bray, for your 
grasp of your job, your dedi- 
cation, your initiative, your 
responsiveness, and your dynamic 
approach to librarianship in a 
unique kind of library service. 



We who are blind are the bene- 
ficiaries of these attributes, 
which made your leadership of 
the Division for the Blind and 
Physically Handicapped of the 
Library of Congress so great, so 
productive. " 

And we must acknowledge our 
appreciation to Betty Bray, 
whose own ability, understand- 
ing, and support was so essen- 
tial in enabling her husband to 
meet the challenges and demands 
of his work so effectively. 

This is a particularly unique 
occasion which, I hope, the 
historians of AAWB will duly 
note. Not only are we pre- 
senting the 31st Shotwell Award 
to an individual with an ex- 
emplary record of more than 37 
years of public service. But 
for the first — and, perhaps, 
the last — time in AAWB history, 
the presentation is being made 
by an ex-entomologist to an 



42 



ex-zoologist I Bob Bray and I 
remember the days when a bug was 
a type of insect. 

It is fitting that we are 
honoring Bob Bray at this 
Cleveland Convention of AAWB, 
for he is a native son of Ohio 
and was born in Cincinnati on 
September 9, 1915. In 1928, 
his family settled in Washington, 
D.C. ; and Bob attended high 
school and college there, gradu- 
ating from George Washington 
University in 1941 with an A.B. 
degree in zoology. 

While working his way through 
college. Bob Bray got his first 
experience in library service, 
starting as a page in the Dis- 
trict of Columbia Public Library 
in May 1935 and working as a 
circulation assistant before he 
left in September 1940. Shortly 
thereafter, he joined the staff 
of the Library of Congress as a 
messenger; and after graduation 
from George Washington University, 
he decided to make library 
science and technology reading 
room, and assistant in charge 
of a unique wartime checklist of 
technical publications from 
enemy countries available in 
American libraries. 



head of the Exchange Section of 
the Exchange and Gifts Division 
until 1948, when he was appointed 
assistant chief of the Card 
Division. During most of 1949, 
he was on leave of absence from 
the Library, participating in a 
physics abstracting study with 
the American Institute of 
Physics. For the first six 
months of 1950, he worked on a 
special project for the Central 
Intelligence Agency. 

Resuming his active career at 
the Library of Congress in July 
1950, Bob was made assistant 
chief of the Navy Research 
Section, which became part of 
the Technical Information 
Division. He was appointed 
chief of that division in March 
1956 and remained in that posi- 
tion until May 3, 1957, when he 
was appointed chief of the 
Division for the Blind. 

I first met Bob Bray very 
shortly thereafter while I was 
Executive Director of the 
Blinded Veterans Association. 
He called to introduce himself, 
and we had lunch at a restau- 
rant called the Zebra Room — I 
didn't know then of his training 
in zoology. 



From 1944 to 1946, he served 
in the Navy as assistant com- 
munications officer and signal 
officer aboard the U.S.S. Hamul, 
a repair and supply ship servicing 
destroyers, mostly in the South 
Pacific. He entered the Navy as 
an ensign and was discharged as 
a lieutenant (j.g.). 

Returning to the Library of 
Congress in 1946, Bob served as 



Since that first meeting, I 
have had the pleasure as a 
colleague, consumer, and friend 
of observing the great expansion 
of the Books for the Blind 
program. And I must add that 
the expansion of service and 
available reading material has 
sometimes resulted in frus- 
tration. At that first lunch- 
eon, I suggested to Bob the 
possibility of recording a 



43 



regular Talking Book anthology of 
the best articles from Harper ' s , 
The Atlantic , The Saturday Review , 
and similar magazines. At that 
time, there were only two or three 
magazines available on Talking 
Book. As those of you who fol- 
low the program know, those three 
magazines and many more are now 
regularly available in braille 
and on records; and I am frus- 
trated by not having the time to 
read the ones I want and books 
too. Of course, the significant 
thing is that a variety of read- 
ing material to suit a wide 
cross-section of reading taste 
in the blind population is 
available. 

Let me illustrate growth in 
library service to the blind with 
a few figures. In 1957, when Bob 
Bray took over the program, the 
annual appropriation was 
$1,000,000, the staff of the 
Division consisted of 22 per- 
sons, and there were 28 regional 
distributing libraries. In 
December 1972, when Bob retired, 
the appropriation was $8.9 mil- 
lion, the staff had increased to 
99, and there are 51 regional 
distributing libraries and 70 
state and local subregional 
libraries. Growth like this in 
a Federal program does not occur 
spontaneously, even in an obvi- 
ously essential program like 
library service for the blind. 
It takes a Bob Bray to sell it 
to his superiors, to sell it to 
the Congress, and to sell it to 
state and local people to assure 
effective grass roots implemen- 
tation. 

As you know, the Congress in 
1955 enacted two important laws. 



One covered into the Books for 
the Blind program physically 
handicapped individuals who can- 
not read conventional printed 
material. These included per- 
sons with serious visual handi- 
caps who are not legally blind. 
The other law amended the 
Library Services and Construc- 
tion Act to provide for grants 
to the states for library 
service to the handicapped. As 
an active participant in the 
process which led to the enact- 
ment of these laws , I want to 
acknowledge the indispensable 
assistance of Bob Bray as a key 
participant. And equally 
important, he took the leader- 
ship in the library community 
to implement these laws. His 
effort is responsible for the 
increase in regional and sub- 
regional libraries and the 
increase in readership to some 
400,000 people — most of whom 
are visually handicapped. 

During his entire career. Bob 
Bray has been an active par- 
ticipant in many organizations 
related to his field of inter- 
est. In addition to serving as 
Chairman of the American 
Library Association's Round 
Table on Library Service to the 
Blind, he organized and has 
served as Chairman of the 
Library Committee of the Presi- 
dent ' s Committee on Employment 
of the Handicapped. He has 
been an active member of the 
AAWB, the Association for the 
Education of the Visually 
Handicapped and the National 
Rehabilitation Association. He 
has served as a member of the 
Board of Trustees of the Ameri- 
can Foundation for the Blind 



44 



and as a member of the Board of 
Directors of the National Ac- 
creditation Council of Agencies 
Serving the Blind and Visually 
Handicapped. 

Among the many awards he has 
received in recognition of his 
accomplishments are the Migel 
Medal of the American Foundation 
for the Blind in 1963, the Apollo 
Award of the American Optometric 
Association in 1958, and the 
Distinguished Service Award of 
the Library of Congress in 1969. 
In 1972, the Pacific University 
at Forest Grove, Oregon, con- 
ferred upon him the honorary 
degree of Doctor of Humane 
Letters. 

Late last spring. Bob and Betty 
Bray moved to Sanibel, Florida, 
where Bob is actively pursuing 
a longstanding interest in field 
ornithology — otherwise known as 
bird-watching. I understand Bob 
and Betty have been touring the 
island on a tandem bike, with 
Bob doing the pumping. They have 
always enjoyed taking vacation 
trips in their camper and are 
planning to continue this activi- 
ty. 



Last week. I had occasion to 
chat with Bill Thompson, a former 
colleague at BVA whom Bob and 
many of you in the audience 
know. When I told him that Bob 
was getting the Shotwell Award 
tonight, he was understandably 
delighted and said, "You know, 
under Bob Bray, the Division 
for the Blind and Handicapped 
is one government agency which 
was really responsive." 

Responsiveness to readers' 
needs is undoubtedly the key 
trait which Bob Bray has 
demonstrated, for it was the 
motivating force behind the 
brilliant and creative leader- 
ship which characterized his 
tenure as Chief of the Division 
for the Blind and Physically 
Handicapped. 

Bob, on behalf of your col- 
leagues in AAWB, I have the 
honor, the privilege, and the 
pleasure of presenting to you 
the Ambrose M. Shotwell Award 
for your outstanding and 
devoted service to blind per- 
sons throughout the United 
States.

ACCEPTANCE OF THE AMBROSE M. SHOTWELL AWARD 
Robert S . Bray 



Mr. President, Honored Guests, 
Ladies and Gentlemen: I accept 
this award gratefully, humbly and 
with that rare depth of thanks 
and appreciation which I realize 
at this moment can come only 
with retirement. In so doing I 
am more keenly aware than ever 
of the years of effort, confi- 
dence and cooperation that have 
been bestowed upon me by my 
staff, my many colleagues in many 
professions and the legions of 
readers they have assisted and 
inspired me to serve. 

My thanks to you, Irv Schloss, 
for those very generous words. 
I might say your coverage of your 
subject was typically thorough 
and is further evidence of the 
great work you are doing in 
Washington. You may know. Ladies 
and Gentlemen, that the recipient 
of the Ambrose Shotwell Award is 
further honored by being allowed 
to pick the person who will make 
the presentation. From the very 
outset of my years in work for 
the blind, Irv Schloss has been 
a friend on many counts : as a 
fellow worker for the blind, as 
a man who likes good food, as 
a fellow zoologist when we 
harked back to college days, 
and as a reader and concerned 
critic of our library materials. 
When I chose Irv I knew he would 
do his homework well and would 
dispense the information he 
unearthed with grace and dis- 
cretion! Thank you again, Irv. 

Again, I thank you of AAWB 
for the honor and recognition 



you have bestowed upon me to- 
night. In addressing you for 
the first and perhaps the only 
time I now have the opportunity 
to express my admiration for 
AAWB. Its membership, and this 
audience tonight contains more 
people with whom I have worked 
than any other association 
possibly could. 

Most of my career was spent 
in the Library of Congress. The 
first five years, however, were 
in a menial capacity with the 
District of Columbia Public 
Library. The hours were con- 
venient for my working for my 
college degree; besides, I liked 
both books and people and was 
to discover that I liked par- 
ticularly getting books and 
people together. As a messenger, 
scorned by the professional 
staff and specifically forbidden 
to consult directly with readers 
about books, it was I, in fact, 
who delivered the book to the 
reader, who saw his reactions 
and heard what he said about 
the book, who saw him either 
scorn it or take it home or sit 
for hours and pour through it . 
It was frequently I whom he 
asked for the book on future 
occasions and who knew just 
where to get it for him. This 
is how real librarians are 
nurtured, not in graduate 
schools yearning for adminis- 
trative jobs. 

I went to the Library of 
Congress in 1940 and began at 
the bottom all over again. 



47 



This time there were more direc- 
tions to go in and further to go 
in all of them. I have held a 
wide variety of positions in 
virtually all departments and 
have spent literally many years 
in direct service to members of 
the public or in answering 
written inquiries. At no time 
did I cease to practice a sort 
of personal librarianship by 
retaining and developing ex- 
pertise in the literature of 
certain subjects of interest 
to me. One does not become a 
truly effective library program 
administrator by getting good 
grades, sitting near books and 
protecting one's status. One 
must get involved. I realize 
now that my entire previous 
career was, in effect, just 
good training for that memorable 
day in 1957 that I joined in 
work for the blind. I have, 
since that day, continued to 
apply the lessons and princi- 
ples learned in those years to 
this work-- apparently with some 
successi 

I attended my first AAWB 
Convention that summer in 
Chicago. For the first time 
I met and began to work with 
many of you who are here to- 
night. You will want to hear 
about one of our Regional 
Librarians whom I met for the 
first time: Carl Christenson 
from Wayne County, Michigan, a 
braille reader and a good 
friend. He has passed away 
but he would want you to know 
this evening how he indoctri- 
nated this new fellow from the 
Library of Congress. Carl 
liked workshops, as I do, and 
enjoyed the library group 
meetings. But when it came 



to sitting row on row and having 
a paper read at you, Carl lost 
interest. He proposed that we 
go to his room for a drink. I 
accepted and had the good sense 
not to offer to be bar tender 
as is often the case when we are 
out with our blind friends. 
Carl got two standard hotel 
drinking glasses and the J & B 
and got to work. He hooked the 
third joint of his index finger 
over the rim of the glass and 
poured until it touched the tip 
of his finger and gave the 
resulting drink to me. He did 
the same for himself. For 
seconds, he hooked the first 
joint of his index finger over 
the rim and repeated the proc- 
ess. A short time later he 
suggested a walk around the 
Loop. We did. Have you ever 
walked around the Loop on a 
July afternoon under those 
conditions! 

It was apparent in 1957 that 
you wanted a vigorous library 
program together with more 
materials going to more readers 
through more outlets. History 
said it was time and the sta- 
tistics said the need was 
there. My staff and I have 
attempted to do just this. 
There were about 29 on the 
Division staff in those days. 
There are 99 now. There were 
26 Regional Libraries (two in 
several states) and today there 
is no state without some degree 
of direct involvement in 
library service. Nearly every 
state has its own base library, 
and several have branches in 
order to get service closer to 
the community. The annual 
budget of the Division was 
about one million dollars. 



48 



today it is nearly ten million; 
then and now, 90% of these monies 
goes for actual books, apparatus 
and related publications to 
provide direct, personal service 
to readers. There were about 
45,000 readers in 1957; today 
it is about 250,000. There are 
many thousands yet unserved. I 
cite these few figures to show 
you that effective library 
service to blind people is a 
cooperative, program business 
involving good staff work at 
many levels. Money is im- 
portant; but money alone won't 
buy a program. People — AAWB 
people — make a program. As 
long as we work together, and 
work for our readers and not 
ourselves, we cannot fail. 

I have worked, directly or 
indirectly, with nearly every- 
one in this audience tonight. 
I owe you all an apology and 
an explanation which I intend 
to make to you now. I could 
do this alphabetically beginning 
with Autry in Arkansas and going 
on through Smitty in Wyoming, 
but you all know what I am saying 
when I remind you that over the 
last fifteen years you have often 
wondered what I was up to from 
time to time. I have not always 
been a model of tact, discretion 
and clarity of communication. 
But it has been to the best of 
my ability and within the 
limited resources of our staff. 
I hope you will forgive me. 
Let us ask ourselves: "Is 
there any state that has not 
seen improvement and growth in 
its library resources?" This 
is really what it has all been 
about. I thank you one and all, 
for me and for my staff, for 



your understanding, patience 
and cooperation over the years . 

I wish now to take advantage 
of my possession of the podium 
to make two introductions that 
are important to you and to me 
at this point in our mutual 
endeavors. First, may I intro- 
duce my successor, Mr. Kurt 
Cylke. He is eminently quali- 
fied for this task and I have 
every confidence in him and the 
staff that I leave to him in 
the years ahead. I ask that you 
afford him the same courtesy, 
cooperation, understanding and 
fellowship that you have given 
me so generously over the 
years. The second introduction 
is closer to my heart than you 
can realize. But I know you 
will understand when I simply 
ask that Charles Gallozzi stand 
and be recognized. He has been 
my associate throughout my term 
of service to blind people. No 
more capable or loyal assistant 
can be imagined. He has been 
loyal to the program to a degree 
that even you do not fully 
realize. No thanks I could 
give him would be adequate, but 
I know he understands what I 
am saying. 

Just a few months ago in an 
operating room in Fairfax 
County Hospital I was given a 
second chance at life. An 
operation that normally re- 
quires about three hours lasted 
for over seven. I expect the 
surgeon was one of us. At any 
rate he reminds me of what many 
volunteer braillists do when 
they imdertake the impossible: 
it just takes a little longer 1 
I intend to make the best of 



49 



this second chance. I will be 
busy somewhere, somehow getting 
books and people together, 
continuing to enrich my own 
library knowledge and experience, 
and being active in work for the 
blind whenever I have the oppor- 
tunity. All the evenings of all 
the tomorrows will pose the same 
question that has presented it- 
self on all the yesterdays: "To 
whom have I been of service 
today?" 

But our future is not wholly 
determined by our health and I 
can share a personal secret with 
you this evening. I was eligible 
to retire in 1970. I had 35 
years of service when I reached 
the age of 55, a rare situation 
in either the public or the 
private sector. Economically 
speaking, I have been working 
for nothing since then. But 
one does not shrug off a career 
lightly, especially in work for 
the blind as many of you have 
already discovered, or will in 
the years ahead. I made a 
secret promise to my wife that 
I would retire sometime in 1973. 
Our four sons are married and 
away, and there is the whole 
world to visit. I had not 
picked a time but with my 
instinct for procrastination 
I intended to make it as late 
in 1973 as possible; besides 
there are lots of interesting 
things happening in our work 
in October, etc., etc. Then the 
events that I have mentioned 
took place. It was still, and 



always will be the most liter- 
ally agonizing decision I ever 
made — and I made it alone. In 
all candor, I feel tonight and 
I expect I will always feel deep 
down that I walked out on my 
staff and on you, my friends 
and colleagues even though it 
is not the case. In regaining 
everything, I have suffered 
terrible losses. But many of 
you know what this is like, so 
I can just say that this is the 
final indoctrination. 

I have one last favor to ask 
of you. Throughout the years 
while I was visiting you in 
your agency in your state , or 
county or city and working with 
you in our common cause there

PRESENTATION OF THE LARRY BLAHA AWARD 

i . . , . . To 

STANLEY SUTERKO 

Associate Professor, Institute of Blind Rehabilitation 
Western Michigan University 



Presentation By 

VJarren Bledsoe 
Specialist, Division of Services for the Blind 
Rehabilitation Services Administration 



You will all doubtless remember 
that at the AAWB Convention of 
1971 the Orientation and Mobility 
Interest Group approved the idea 
of requesting the gift of the 
gold handle of Sir Francis 
Campbell's cane from Mr. Fred 
Parry, great-grandson of Sir 
Francis. This was in order that 
it be rehabilitated by fitting 
it with a new shaft and that it 
become an honored talisman to be 
passed from one Blaha awardee to 
another. I am pleased to say 
that Mr. Parry kindly consented 
to yield the gold handle for this 
purpose. The reconstruction was 
accomplished through the good 
offices of the 1971 recipient 
of the award, Mr. William 
Debetaz , and you see the result. 

You will notice that the cane 
is slender (the handle was only 
1/2 inch in diameter) and it 
may seem short to you. However, 
Sir Francis was a small man, and 
a cane of about this length 
would have been longer than a 
common walking stick, though not 
as long as those we use in 
training blind people today. 
We have a picture of Sir Francis 



wearing a sword and Nelson hat 
and knee breeches the day he 
went to be knighted by King 
Edward VII in July 1909. His 
cane appears to have come up 
about as far as his hip bone, 
so we can assiome that like most 
expert blind travelers on foot 
he used some approximation of 
the Hoover technique. 

I will remember at the AAWB 
Convention in Baltimore in 1947 
Dr. Richard Hoover first pre- 
sented his technique to the 
general meeting. Mrs. Mary 
Dranga Campbell, daughter-in- 
law of Sir Francis Campbell, 
was there. She beckoned to me 
and said, "I want to see that 
young man . " 

When Dick Hoover came before 
her (she was the kind of grande 
dame who could make the head 
waiter at the Ritz tremble) she 
said, "Dr. Hoover, you are the 
first person since my father-in- 
law who has had the slightest 
grasp of the kind of physical 
training blind people need." 

We know comparatively little 



51 



about the methods of orientation 
and mobility used by these inde- 
pendent blind people of long ago 
who got there on their own, but 
what we know points to the long 
cane. Beside Sir Francis we 
have another example in the 
famous English road engineer 
John Metcalf , called "Blind 
Jack of Knaresborough. " He made 
a fortune building public roads, 
and his ability to get about by 
himself astonished his contempo- 
raries. An old print of him 
shows him holding a cane which 
seemed to be higher than his 
hat. As it is a three-quarter 
picture, we do not know if it 
went all the way to the ground, 
but at least it was uncommonly 



long and he is holding it 
proudly. 

Sir Francis' cane was only a 
little longer than an ordinary 
walking stick as we have said. 
But we can surmise that he used 
the extra length with some of 
the skill taught today from a 
remark made by an observer who 
said of the cane: "It has 
brains, it can almost talk; it 
ought to be allowed to vote." 

Stan, I cannot imagine a more 
fitting recipient of it or of 
the Blaha Award than you, a 
really great teacher of the 
blind. 



ACCEPTANCE SPEECH FOR THE LARRY BLAHA AWARD 
Stanley Suterko 



Receiving the Lawrence Blaha 
Award makes me feel deeply 
honored and humbled to be se- 
lected for the distinction that 
it symbolizes. This award makes 
me recall the many years of 
association I had with Larry, 
both socially and profession- 
ally. I came to know Larry in 
1947 when I started working at 
the Veterans Administration 
Hospital, nines, Illinois. I 
also worked with Larry at 
Western Michigan University 
until 1964, when he left to 
establish a Mobility Instructors 
program at California State 
College at Los Angeles. 

Reflecting back on those 
early years of association with 



Larry made me acutely aware of 
the comaraderie developed 
amongst the pioneers in the 
field. These first instructors 
had a real belief and dedica- 
tion in the importance of the 
service they were rendering. 
In those early days they had to 
work in an atmosphere exhibiting 
anything from a passive resist- 
ance to outright vocal rejection 
toward what they were doing. 

No doubt, this kind of atmos- 
phere, plus a sincere desire to 
increase their knowledge and 
improve the kinds of mobility 
skills they were teaching, 
caused these early instructors 
to have many closed meetings, 
dialogues, and experimentation 



52 



with the various aspects of ori- 
entation and mobility. I feel 
rather privileged to have been 
a member of this early minority 
group as far as the field of 
the blind was concerned. 

There is no doubt that these 
early discourses and free ex- 
change of ideas among the 
pioneers, plus the outsiders 
criticisms, contributed signifi- 
cantly to the positive growth 
to each member of the group. It 
is in this vein that I humbly 
accept this award — a recognition 
that all those with whom I have 
had the privilege of being as- 
sociated with in this field have 
played a role in any growth that 
I have achieved. So may I take 
this opportunity to sincerely 
thank all of my associates who 
have contributed so significantly 
to my knowledge and understand- 
ing in this specialty. 



Don Blasch, Lloyd Widerberg, 
Marv Weessies and Betty 
Rittersdorf , all of whom keep 
me on the straight and narrow 
through their inquisitive ques- 
tions of why something is done 
a certain way and readily offer- 
ing what they call constructive 
criticism if it does not seem 
proper. 

I also owe a sincere debt of 
gratitude to all of the stu- 
dents who have gone through our 
program with an inquisitive mind 
and challenging attitude, thus 
forcing one to seek a greater 
depth of knowledge in his spe- 
cialty. Last, and certainly not 
least, the many blind indi- 
viduals I have been privileged 
to work with who have taught me 
so much, not only in the area of 
mobility, but also in the total 
capabilities of individuals 
without sight. 



At the risk of unintentionally 
omitting some deserving indi- 
viduals, I would like to give 
due recognition and thanks to 
the following individuals who 
have contributed so much to my 
growth: Larry Blaha, Russ 
Williams, Dee Corbett, John 
Malamazian, Don Blasch, Lloyd 
Widerberg, Eddie Mees, and all 
other past fellow workers at 
the Blind Rehabilitation Section 
of Hines Hospital. Also my 
present associates at Western 
Michigan University, namely. 



To me this award will always 
be emblematic of the coopera- 
tive and mutual effort of many 
individuals contributing to one 
another in quest for the highest 
quality of mobility services 
that is possible. Very humbly 
and most sincerely, I say thank 
you for this recognition in 
memory of one who had contri- 
buted so much to our area of 
specialization .

THE PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS 



Robert H. Whitstock, President 

American Association of Workers for the Blind, Inc. 
Vice President, The Seeing Eye, Inc. 
Morristown, N.J. 



In January, 1973, some six 
months before the Cleveland Con- 
vention, I flew to Washington, 
D.C., to meet with Dr. Douglas 
MacFarland, immediate past- 
president. Both of us had been, 
and continued to be, in close 
phone contact with the then 
president, Cleo Dolan. For AAWB 
it was a time of marked contrasts. 
As Charles Dickens wrote in THE 
TALE OF TWO CITIES, "It was the 
worst of times; it was the best 
of times . " 

The Cleveland Biennial meeting 
was just beyond the horizon. The 
program and format for the Con- 
vention had all but been com- 
pleted, and the host committee, 
under Cleo Dolan' s able direction, 
promised unexcelled hospitality 
and superior management. In fact, 
the Cleveland Biennial meeting 
proved to be the best attended 
AAWB Convention, and AAWB indi- 
vidual membership achieved its 
high watermark, just shy of 3,400. 
The regionalization process had 
demonstrated its value, and AAWB 
had nearly tripled in numbers. 

At the same time, in January 
of 1973 the organization faced 
an overwhelming challenge. The 
post of executive director had 
become vacant in the previous 
months, and efforts were underway 
to locate a successor. The 
federal grants which had but- 



tressed the organization's 
fiscal base for more than a 
decade, had come to an end. The 
AAWB budget was running at an 
overpowering deficit, which in 
two years would have erased its 
limited capital reserves. It 
was a time, therefore, that 
required realistic assessments 
and decisive action. 

In the months and the years 
that have followed, this process 
of soul-searching and decision 
has been carried forward. The 
first two steps in achieving 
the desired results of a stable 
AAWB occurred when the Board of 
Directors agreed to support an 
increase in individual member- 
ship dues. The membership 
ratified this action over- 
whelmingly at its Cleveland 
meeting. We had expected a 10% 
decrease in membership for 1974, 
but were pleasantly surprised to 
find the decrease was a net loss 
of approximately 200 members. 
The second essential step was to 
hire a young and vigorous 
executive director, and Bruce 
Blasch joined the staff in this 
capacity just prior to the 
Biennial conference. Prior to 
his selection, the personnel 
policies of the organization 
were revamped, in order to make 
the position more attractive 
and in order to eliminate serious 
fiscal pitfalls that they had 
previously contained. 



Immediately after becoming your 
president, I worked at great 
length to reorganize the adminis- 
trative machinery of the national 
office. A deep debt of gratitude 
is owed to Carleater Holmes, who 
almost single-handedly held the 
office together during the ap- 
proximately seven months in which 
there was no director. With the 
help of an archivist from AFB, 
the archaic filing system was 
modernized. With advice and 
assistance from our treasurer, 
Burt Risley, the organization's 
accounting procedures were up- 
dated, and our limited capital 
reserves were reinvested at the 
highest rate of interest possible. 
Through the generosity of The 
Cleveland Society for the Blind, 
and the ingenuity of the national 
office staff, the Washington 
offices had been re-equipped, 
refurnished, and redecorated, 
and they are available for use 
by the membership for your 
meetings in Washington. 

The increase in individual dues 
produced the expected increase in 
income to the organization; at 
the same time it was necessary 
to slash the cost of operation 
drastically, in order to balance 
the budget. This was no simple 
undertaking, because the effort 
was complicated by a run away 
inflation and a deepening national 
economic recession. The budget 
was balanced in 1974 and is 
expected to show a slight surplus 
in 1975. This minor miracle 
could not have been accomplished 
if it had not been for the un- 
selfish efforts of Chairman 
George Mallinson and his Publi- 
cations Advisory Committee. Un- 
failing gratitude is due Dean 
Mallinson and his colleagues, 
whose advice and pooled wisdom 



have cut many thousands of 
dollars in savings from past 
AAWB budgets. Their suggestions 
have reduced the costs of our 
printing, mailing, and mainte- 
nance of membership lists. 

At its fall meeting of 1973, 
the Board of Directors of AAWB 
gave the go-ahead to continue 
the publication of our Annual, 
BLINDNESS. The proposed cost 
of the '73 Annual, BLINDNESS, 
however, was to be approxi- 
mately one fourth its previous 
cost. This objective was 
achieved by implementing the 
recommendations of the Publi- 
cations Advisory Committee. The 
Board of Directors also approved 
publication of PROCEEDINGS for 
the Cleveland Convention, and 
despite inflation and increase 
in size, the cost of PROCEEDINGS 
was reduced. For 1975 the Board 
has approved an experimental 
approach which will eliminate 
the Constitution and By-laws 
and the membership list from 
PROCEEDINGS. This action will 
cut the cost of its publication 
by approximately $1,000 to 
$2,000, and we look forward to 
the reaction of the membership 
as to whether or not this pro- 
cedure should be continued in 
the future. The Board also 
voted to continue publication 
of CONTEMPORARY PAPERS, which 
will continue to be free to the 
membership, but henceforth, 
will be sold to non-members at 
approximately cost. After con- 
siderable discussion, the AAWB 
subsidy for NEW OUTLOOK sub- 
scriptions for interested 
members was continued, subject 
to later reassessment. The card 
catalogue, which had been initi- 
ated and maintained under a 
federal grant, had been termi- 



nated in 1972 when the grant 
ended. The so-called card cata- 
logue is currently being reas- 
sessed by joint action of both 
AEVH and AAWB, through a three 
year grant by the Nevil Founda- 
tion, with Mary Kay Bauman as 
its director. In other words, 
despite inflation, recession and 
sharp budget cuts, AAWB has been 
able in the past two years to 
maintain its previous level of 
service to its members. 

In addition, new services have 
been developed, and it is expected 
in 1975 that individual member- 
ships will reach the previous 
high of 1973. It will be recalled 
that an experimental project was 
designed, largely at the sug- 
gestion of our Western chapters, 
that for one Board meeting a 
year, the travel expense of 
participants be subsidized by 
the national treasury. The 
experiment proved successful 
and is now a fixed AAWB procedure. 
Also, the job exchange, which 
was developed for the Cleveland 
Convention, has been continued 
as a regular national office 
function. Consequently, persons 
looking for professional posi- 
tions within the field of services 
to blind people, as well as 
interested employers, can file 
with the national office between 
conventions, and can leave ap- 
propriate data at a special job 
exchange booth at the Biennial 
Conventions. The regionalization 
process has also continued during 
the last two years with three 
new chapters — Indiana, New Mexico, 
and Wisconsin having been 
developed. Also, the National 
Braille Association has joined 
AAWB and AEVH in supervising 
the National Braille Authority. 
A joint and continuing committee 



has been formed by AEVH and AAWB 
to look into future areas of 
mutual interest between the 
organizations, where closer 
coordination of purpose can be 
achieved. 

The concept of Interest Group 
treasuries has been expanded 
with Interest Group 11 joining 
Interest Group 9 in sharing 
income from certification fees. 
The share of these two Interest 
Groups has recently been in- 
creased by three-fold, in order 
to help assist with the cost 
of certification. Other Interest 
Groups are being asked to 
examine their own needs to see 
if there is a way in which the 
national office can assist. It 
is also anticipated that a new 
Interest Group will be created, 
replacing a currently defunct 
Interest Group. As for indi- 
vidual benefits to membership, 
several experimental actions 
have been undertaken. Members 
have been offered through AAWB 
low cost professional liability 
insurance coverage. The response 
has been disappointing, and it 
is likely that the insurer will 
not renew in 1976. None the 
less, the area of professional 
liability is an area of growing 
concern, and even if the policy 
is not renewed next year, AAWB 
will certainly have to re- 
evaluate this possible function 
for its membership in the future. 

A program has been worked out 
with Preventi-Med Corporation 
in Countryside, Illinois, to 
provide individual AAWB members 
access to low cost mail-order 
medicine. It is hoped that 
increasing numbers of our 
members will realize the value 
of this service, and take 



advantage of this opportunity to 
reduce the cost of the patent 
medicines and prescription drugs. 

Another innovative effort to 
bring service to the membership 
has been an agreement with Hertz 
Rent-a-Car. Discount cards have 
been distributed to the member- 
ship, offering specified dis- 
counts for this Rent-a-Car 
service. The national office 
welcomes any suggestions as to 
new ways in which AAWB can meet 
the group and individual needs 
of its diverse membership. 

The regionalization efforts of 
AAWB have continued to flourish. 
We now have thirty-one chapters, 
encompassing almost all of our 
states and several Canadian 
provinces. The total participants 
in the six regional meetings of 
1974, once again, doubled the 
attendance of the 1973 Biennial 
meeting, which, itself, had been 
the best attended of all previous 
Biennial meetings. The Southwest 
Regional Conference of 1974 was 
the largest regional meeting ever 
held, and attendance exceeded 
that of many previous national 
meetings. The numbers present, 
here in Atlanta, clearly indicate 
that AAWB is alive and strong and 
on the move. These results are 
not the consequence of any one 
person's action, now the actions 
of a few. They are instead the 
consequence of many able and 
dedicated persons who have lent 
their support and counsel to 
AAWB, and to all of you, I wish 
to express my sincere thanks. 



and local chapter meetings. In 
those conferences I have tried 
to stress one central theme — 
that is, the importance of the 
individual and the need to 
listen to his aspirations and 
his unique needs. In these 
times of bigness, and of 
dispassionate technology and 
procedure, it seems to me that 
individual dignity and self 
respect require even more 
vital attention than in the 
past. I would conclude, on 
this final occasion of ad- 
dressing you officially as 
President, with this repeated 
reminder. If we are to serve 
the needs of blind people, we 
as individual workers must 
blend realism with imagination; 
we must work together rather 
than working at cross purposes. 
We must think of ourselves as 
servants of the people we serve, 
rather than as the programmers. 



In my travels as President- 
elect, and later as President 
of AAWB, I have had the privi- 
lege of attending many regional 



MINUTES OF THE 19 7 5 BIENNIAL CONVENTION 



The 1975 Biennial National Con- 
vention of the American Associ- 
ation of Workers for the Blind 
was held at the Sheraton-Biltmore 
Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia, July 
20-23, 1975. More than 900 
members were present to parti- 
cipate in the 46th Convention, 
making it one of the largest 
conventions in AAWB's history. 
Much of the success of this 
convention was due to the dili- 
gent work of the Georgia Chapter 
members of AAWB, the many volun- 
teers, and in particularly. 
Tommy McCollum, Robert Whitstock 
and Harold Roberts. 

The Southern hospitality of 
the Hotel staff was at its finest. 
This factor plus a well organized 
convention resulted in a trouble- 
free meeting. The Convention 
moved along at a rapid pace and 
meetings and activities were put 
into every available time space. 

Three workshops preceded the 
Biennial meeting. The public 
relations workshop organized by 
Interest Group #8 was as pro- 
ductive and informative as it 
was at the 1973 Biennial meeting. 
Members of Interest Group #5 
organized the workshop entitled. 



"Braille Producers and Providers 
of Services." Mr. William 
Gallagher was instrumental in 
bringing together many out- 
standing pioneers in the work- 
shop entitled, "Radio Reading- 
Services for Blind and Physi- 
cally Handicapped Persons." 
All of these workshops were well 
attended and proved to be very 
beneficial . 

The opening session on Sunday 
Evening included the presenta- 
tion of service awards. The 
Bruce McKenzie Award was pre- 
sented to Mrs. Florence Horton 
and special citations were 
presented to Drs. Cull and 
Hardy. President Whitstock was 
especially pleased to present 
a special citation to Carleater 
Holmes, Administrative Assistant 
in AAWB's National Office. 

The following listing of 
meetings, workshops, speakers 
and Interest Groups are pre- 
sented as they appeared in the

President Whitstock presided at 
the final business meeting. 
McAllister C. Upshaw, Chairman 
of the resolutions committee, 
presented the resolution commit- 
tee report (see Page 45), these 



resolutions were approved indi- 
vidually by the membership. 

Robert Pogorelc presented the 
following resolution which was 
also passed by the membership. 



AAWB RESOLUTION 



WHEREAS , 



maintaining the identity and integrity of separate 
public and private agencies for the blind and 
visually handicapped is essential to the continued 
existence of that profession referred to as "work 
for the blind," and 



WHEREAS , 



at a meeting held concurrent with this 1975 
Biennial Conference of the AAWB, the National 
Council of State Agencies for the Blind issued 
an appeal to all organizations in this field 
generally and to the AAWB particularly, to join 
in unified and concerted action to resist any 
and all effort to eliminate, consolidate or other- 
wise destroy any public or private agency providing 
substantial services to the blind and visually 
handicapped, now therefore, be it 



RESOLVED, 



that the AAWB hereby commit itself to responding 
affirmatively and effectively to the request of 
the National Council of State Agencies for the 
Blind, and be it 



FURTHER RESOLVED, 



that the resolution of the National Council of 
State Agencies for the Blind and this responsive 
resolution of the AAWB be read at an appropriate 
session of the 1975 Biennial Convention for 
ratification by the membership of the AAWB, and 
that the two resolutions be made a part of the 



16 



proceedings and record of this 1975 Biennial 
Convention, and be it .- - ' ; 



FURTHER RESOLVED, 



that the Board and Staff of the AAWB be and hereby 
are authorized and directed to take such further 
action as might be required from time to time to 
carry out the position stated in these two 
resolutions, reporting back to the membership at 
the 1977 convention of the AAWB on such action as 
might have been taken to assure the effective 
advancement of these policies as a matter of the 
highest priority. 



NATIONAL COUNCIL OF STATE AGENCIES FOR 
THE BLIND RESOLUTION 



WHEREAS , 



the most urgently important issue confronting all 
who are involved in serving the blind is that in 
the years ahead there continue to be a specialized 
profession known as "work for the blind," and 



WHEREAS , 



the continued existence and constant improvement 
of both public and private agencies specifically 
and solely operated to serve the blind and visually 
handicapped represent an essential pre-requisite 
to work for the blind's continued existence as a 
viable profession, and 



WHEREAS , 



throughout the United States, public and private 
organizations constituted to serve the blind and 
visually handicapped are with increasing frequency 
required to engage in major battles to preserve 
their identity, to maintain the integrity of 
services provided to clients, and to continue to 
exist as separate, specialized and responsive 
service organizations, and 



WHEREAS , 



resources being used by such agencies in struggling 
to survive could, in the absence of a necessity to 
abort recurrent efforts to amalgamate public and 
private agencies for the blind into massive 
umbrella organizations, be constructively used to 
enrich and expand the unique but critically 
required range of specialized services available 
for blind and visually handicapped Americans, and 



WHEREAS , 



the National Council of State Agencies for the 
Blind regard as its major priority the matter of 
initiating, conducting and cooperating in such 



17 



action as is feasible and as might be required to 
assure the continued existence and the progressive 
strengthening of public and private agencies for 
the blind, now, therefore, be it 



RESOLVED, 



by the National Council of State Agencies for the 
Blind, in special business session assembled this 
21st day of July, 1975, at Atlanta, Georgia, that 
a challenge be and hereby is directed to any and 
all organizations whatsoever in the field of work 
for the blind to lay aside less critically urgent 
issues and to minimize unnecessary internal con- 
flict within this field, joining instead in unified 
and concerted effort to combat and to eliminate 
those administrative fashions and those inade- 
quately examined theories of organization and of 
service provision which now threaten work for the 
blind's continued existence as the only practicable 
mechanism for meeting the special service needs 
of blind and visually handicapped Americans, and 
be it 



FURTHER RESOLVED, 



that a special request is now particularly 
directed to the American Association of Workers 
for the Blind to define, during its 1975 Biennial 
Convention, as representing one of the AAWB's 
highest priorities action which contributes to 
the maintenance of the identity and integrity of 
separate public and private agencies to serve 
blind and visually handicapped Americans solely, 
exclusively and pertinently, and be it 



FURTHER RESOLVED, 



that the president of the National Council of 
State Agencies for the Blind be and hereby is 
authorized to assure the appropriate distribution 
of copies of this resolution. 



Harold Richterman moved that 
the resolutions approved by the 
membership be distributed to the 
appropriate sources. The motion 
was seconded and passed by the 
membership. 

President Whitstock announced 
that the Low Vision Interest 
Group had enough members and 
will hereafter be designated 
as Interest Group 7 — Low Vision. 



The Amendments to the By-Laws 
as mailed to the membership, were 
adopted as follows: 

Add under Article I, Section 1, 
after paragraph 1: Individual 
membership shall be available 
at half regular membership 
cost to a person whose oc- 
cupational status is clerical 
or secretarial and who is 
employed by an organization 
which serves blind people. 



Article V, Section 4, Legis- 
lative Committee: This com- 
mittee ( composed of 15 
members ) shall . . . 

and 

Article V, Section 10, Certi- 
fication Committee: Two com-

*Subject to approval of 
Interest Group IX.** 

**Interest Group IX approved 
this amendment to the By- 



Laws at their business 
meeting on July 23, 1975.

AAWB-AEVH-NBA BRAILLE AUTHORITY REPORT 1975 

Bernard M. Krebs 

Librarian, Jewish Guild for the Blind, 

New York, New York 



21 



The Braille Authority is 
pleased to report that substan- 
tial progress has been made 
during the past year in the 
development and expansion of 
both the music and the Textbook 
Format Codes. The new consult- 
ants who were enlisted to join 
advisory committees brought to 
the deliberations a wealth of 
knowledge and insight to the 
problems which required resolu- 
tion. Their background of 
experience in teaching and 
transcribing assisted greatly 
in developing definitive pro- 
cedures most meaningful to 
teachers, transcribers and 
students . 

For many years the Braille 
Authority delayed in attempting 
to modify the International 
Music Code in the hope that 
another conference would be 
convened to resolve the con- 
flicts and omissions in estab- 
lished rules and procedures. 
Since no such conference was 
being called, it became increas- 
ingly imperative that the Code 
be supplemented for American 
use in order to meet the re- 
quirements of music teachers, 
students and performers. The 
modifications which have been 
officially adopted will allow 
a more accurate presentation 
of music scores. It offers 
either fully detailed notation 
for the teacher and musician 
or a simpler version for the 
novice. The Revised Inter- 



national Manual of Braille Music 
Notation, 1975 is now in the 
process of being printed and it 
should be available for distri- 
bution in the near future. 



The unusual techniques and 
formats initiated by authors and 
publishers continue to become 
increasingly complex. To assure 
comprehension of the text, it 
was necessary to provide braille 
publishers, transcribers, and 
readers with symbols and tech- 
niques which would accurately 
reflect the signs and styles 
used in textbook publications. 

One of the basic improvements 
is in the presentation of dia- 
critics where the same braille 
symbol will now be employed to 
represent equivalent print 
symbols regardless of the dic- 
tionary used by the author for 
reference. Heretofore both the 
transcriber and the student have 
been required to master a special 
set of braille symbols for each 
dictionary presentation. 

Additional improvements have 
been made in the handling of 
marginal and footnotes, boxed 
material, phonetics and phonemics, 
and other symbols and formats 
currently being used in foreign 
languages and in technical fields. 
The final redrafting of the 
Textbook Format Code is now in 
preparation for submission to 
the printers and should be 
available for distribution 
early next year. 



22 



The National Advisory Council 
to the Braille Authority became 
inactive at the expiration of 
the term of office of its Chair- 
man, Dr. Berthold Lowenfeld; 
since no Vice-Chairman had been 
provided, the Braille Authority 
prevailed on Dr. M. Robert 
Harnett to act as Provisional 
Chairman until such time as the 
sponsoring Associations would 
make an appointment. Through 
his leadership, in conjunction 



with the remaining members of 
the Advisory Council the im- 
provements in braille codes 
mentioned herein have been 
officially sanctioned.

REPORT OF THE LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE 

Irvin P. Schloss, Vice Chairman 

Coordinator of Governmental Relations 

American Foundation for the Blind 



As a departure from the tradi- 
tional reports that have been 
given at past conventions, the 
legislative committee held an 
informal session open to all 
members. This evening meeting 
was designed to update indi- 
viduals as to current legis- 
lation and also to answer any 
specific questions of individual 
members. This process facili- 



tated greater indepth decisions 
as well as allowing greater 
clarification and explanation. 
Due to the fluidity of the 
discussions, a formal report 
was not appropriate. Based 
on the success of this procedure 
the legislative committee will 
continue to hold similar meetings 
at future conventions. 



24 



REPORT OF THE HISTORY AND MEMORIAL COMMITTEE 

Warren Bledsoe, Chairman 

Consultant to the Office for the Blind and Visually 

Handicapped, Rehabilitation Services Administration, U.S. DHEW 



Before proceeding to higher 
considerations I would like to 
say a few words about the func- 
tioning of this committee in 
relation to the regions and the 
local chapters. Efforts to 
secure reports from member chair- 
men of the chapters have so far 
been only 50% successful. I want 
to commend those chapters which 
account for the 50%, and I would 
especially like to commend the 
Southeast Region for establish- 
ing a regional History and 
Memorial Committee and for 
making a report to the National 
Committee. This report not only 
listed the names of members who 
had died but took notice of the 
dedication of the Addie McBryde 
Rehabilitation Center. I hope 
this example will be followed by 
other regions and chapters. 

Before turning our attention 
to the members of the Association 
who have gone out of our lives — 
at least physically — I would 
like to pay a tribute to a 
member who is not here, but who 
is very much alive. This is 
Edith Burrell Harrison, Mrs. 



Phillip Harrison. She was a 
teacher in the Evergreen Program 
for blinded veterans of World 
War I. She married a veteran of 
that war. And she has spent all 
her life in practical and benign 
action and influence in behalf 
of blind people. A few days 
ago I had a call from her voicing 
concern over a newly blinded 
woman of 80 whose talking-book 
recordings were not coming 
through as immediately as the 
situation required. To me this 
represented an unending flow of 
devotion which had its well- 
springs more than 50 years. How 
many more I do not know. 

I asked her to send me a 
message to this convention. I 
also remembered a poem she had 
written entitled "Evergreen-- 
Armistice Day 1921." This poem, 
it seemed to me, was the well- 
spring of her long career of 
devotion. I asked her if I 
might read it here tonight and 
she said that I might. Here is 
her poem. 



v. 



Evergreen Armistice Day — 1921 



Tall poplars dark against a summer sky, 
Quaint posies crowding each box bordered bed, 
A russet oak grove shimmering through the mist. 
Broad spaces friendly stars overhead. 
The play of sunlight on a copper beech. 
Steps winding downward to a silver brook. 
Season on season hour on changing hour. 
Nature a riot everywhere you look . . . 



25 



These beauties any passerby may see, 

But they who dwell here know a deeper love: 

To them nature reveals her mystery, 

Her more elusive charm below, above, 

Swift fleeting fragrance, lilac, cherry-rose, 

Box sun warmed, honey suckle, new-mown hay. 

The smoke of autumn bonfires. 

Good earth mould in woodsy places. 

Dry leaves blown away, familiar sounds, 

The robin's reveille. 

Crows cawing in the oak grove, wind in trees, 

Brooks' quiet rippling, mocking birds in Spring, 

Snow crunching under foot, soft hum of bees. 

The feel of clear night air. 

Mist on one's face, 

The kindly warmth of sunshine, cooling rain. 

Bluff boisterous wind, spurring one on and on. 

Uphill and down and then back home . . . 

These revelations come to heal and bless 
And others of the spirit hardly won 
The great earth mother gives to those who seek 
Courage and faith and strength to carry on. 

Edith Burrell Harrison 



And here is Mrs. Harrison's 
message. "Warmest greetings to 
AAWB, to my dear old friends 
and co-workers, and to a new 
generation of torch bearers. 

"The years since Evergreen 
(1919) have opened doors into 
the world of opportunities for 
blind people everywhere. Can 
we keep the old spirit of simple, 
neighborly helpfulness in the 
midst of today's tangled red 
tape? Good luck and Happy 
Landings ' " 

There are people who say "Lots 
of Luck" to us these days with 
a sinister undertone. But not 
Mrs. Harrison. During all the 
years since 1921, as the World 
has moved toward cynicism and 
doubt, she has never wavered in 



the courage and faith and 
strength which were the key 
words in her poem. I hope this 
convention will send her a 
message of affection and regard 
and thanks for her moral and 
spiritual support. 

Perhaps I am the only person 
in this room who recalls even 
vaguely Evergreen House peopled 
by the soldiers of World War I 
in the time in which Mrs. 
Harrison wrote and also the 
simple neighborliness with 
which it was loaned to Uncle 
Sam by the Garrett family. 
They were people who were never 
made sad (as was one man in the 
Bible) by the fact that they 
were very, very rich. This 
was because they shared as 
naturally as they breathed. 



26 



At the last convention of AAWB 
this committee went through a 
mutation. It ceased to be the 
Necrology Committee and became 
the History and Memorial Com- 
mittee, and I wish to take this 
opportunity to thank this body 
for taking such action. In so 
doing we place emphasis on life 
rather than death. I told you 
two years ago that I believed 
in the immortality of the soul, 
and now I would like to say that 
it is my hope you will make it 
a tradition that this be one of 
the job requirements for chairman- 
ship of this committee. This 
is not asking for a resolution 
to that effect . . . rather 
that the spirit and custom of 
the meeting move in that direc- 
tion. I was taught when I was 
young that custom and spirit 
were stronger than law and I 
still believe it. It is a 
little known fact in the history 
of blindiana that a subtle 
change came over the program 
for blinded soldiers at Valley 
Forge Hospital when two old 
Quakers entered the picture: 
one was Mrs. George Vaux, Henry 
James's granddaughter (and 
William James's niece) — who 
started the National Travelers 
Aid Society, and learned social 
work that way. The other was 
Rufus Jones, Chairman of the 
Friends Service Committee during 
World War II. At the sug- 
gestion of Rufus Jones, Dr. 
Hoover and his wife became the 
house guests of Mrs. Vaux for 
two years at the time when Dr. 
Hoover was the key man in the 
program and I have always thought 
he learned what social work he 
learned from those two remarka- 
ble old people. One of Rufus 
Jone's favorite terms was muta- 
tion. In fact, he described 



immortality as a mutation . He 
himself was a white eminence 
which caused a very subtle 
mutation in the spirit of the 
program at Valley Forge between 
1944 and 1946. Not to go into 
too much detail on this occasion, 
I would say that a symptom of 
the change was a gradual, and 
then swift, eradication of a 
cynicism which at first had 
pervaded the thinking of the 
staff. The value of this was 
enormous, cynicism being one 
of the most deadly infections 
which can afflict a rehabili- 
tation program. 

Later as editor of the Out- 
look for the Blind , I asked Rufus 
Jones to write a short philo- 
sophical piece for a feature 
entitled "A Society of Human 
Beings." He wrote very briefly 
an article which was a setting 
for these arresting sentences: 
"In the great days of the 
Renaissance the students in 
the Italian Universities used 
to call out to every person who 
came to address them, 'Tell us 
about the soul; tell us about 
the soul.' We have been so 
busy with the affairs of the 
outside world that we have for- 
gotten there is an inner world 
where we really live." 

Being a young editor, hungry 
for my journal, I asked him if 
he could not write a little more. 
He said, "No," and went into a 
Quaker silence, letting his 
thought germ work. He had told 
me about the soul and he thought 
that would have to suffice. 

It is the special function of 
this committee to remind the 
membership that many wise men 
have believed in the soul and 



27 



thought they knew something 
about it. We do this by re- 
calling the names of our co- 
workers who have died and 
thinking a little about them. 
It had been my hope that I 
could bring you brief sketches 
of each of them, putting into 
a few words the significance of 
their lives as it seemed to 
their co-workers. Unfortunately, 
our reporting system is not yet 
equal to them. I will there- 
fore merely read only their 
names with two exceptions. Two 
individuals who were awarded the 
Shotwell Medal are no longer 
with us. They are Robert Bray 



and Colonel Louis Watts, and we 
should pause to remember that 
Colonel Watts gave Virginia its 
Commission for the Blind and 
the AAWB its constitution. 
Robert Bray increased the size 
of the talking-book program 
many times, introduced the use 
of tape recorders to the 
National Program of Library 
Services for the Blind and 
stimulated the production of 
periodical literature immeasur- 
ably.

A call to battle, and the battle done 

Ere the last echo dies within our ears; 

A rose choked in the grass; an hour of fears; 

The gusts that past a darkening shore do beat; 

The burst of music down an unlistening street, 

I wonder at the idleness of tears. 

Ye old, old dead, and ye of yesternight 
Chieftains, and bards, and keepers of the sheep. 
By every cup of sorrow that you had. 
Loose me from tears, and make me see aright 
How each hath back what once he stayed to weep; 
Homer his sight, David his little lad! 



We have said that the change in 
the name of this committee 
emphasized life rather than death 
and also the continunity of this 
organization from generation to 
generation. I believe most 
heartily that our friends who are 
no longer with us in the flesh 



deserve a joyous rather than a 
mournful requiem, when we meet 
together as colleagues. Instead 
of a minute of silence I ask as 
I did two years ago that you 
applaud them, making a joyful 
noise.

REPORT ON THE WORLD COUNCIL FOR THE 
WELFARE OF THE BLIND 

Cleo B. Dolan, Alternate Delegate, 
Executive Director, Cleveland Society for the Blind 



43 



The quinquennial meeting of 
the General Assembly of the World 
Council for the Welfare of the 
Blind took place in Sao Paulo, 
Brazil, August 5-16, 1974. The 
United States official delega- 
tion consisted of the following: 
Mr. M. Robert Barnett, Chairman, 
(American Foundation for the 
Blind); Dr. Isabel Grant (Na- 
tional Federation of the Blind) ; 
Mrs. Feme K. Roberts (Associ- 
ation for Education of the 
Visually Handicapped; Mr. Floyd 
Quails (American Council of the 
Blind) ; and Mr. Cleo Dolan (AAWB). 
A number of other prominent 
American workers for the Blind, 
some of whom participated on 
the program by the presentation 
of papers, were also in attend- 
ance. Among them were Mr. Ross 
Purse (Canadian National Insti- 
tute for the Blind) , who was 
elected as Chairman of the newly 
created WCWB Oceania-North 
America Regional Committee; Mr. 
Harold G. Roberts (American 
Foundation for Overseas Blind) , 
member of the WCWB Executive 
Board; Mr. Harold Richterman 
(National Industries for the 
Blind) ; Mr. Burt Risley (Na- 
tional Council of State Agencies 
for the Blind); Dr. Natalie 
Barraga (University of Texas) ; 
Dr. Jeanne Kenmore, Director of 
Education, AFOB, and current 
President of the International 
Council for Education of the 
Visually Handicapped. 

The WCWB is an international 
organization founded in 1931 



comprised of more than sixty 
member nations. The objectives 
of the Council are "to work for 
the welfare of the blind and the 
prevention of blindness through- 
out the world by providing the 
means of consultation between 
organizations of and for the 
blind in different countries, 
and by the creation of coordi- 
nating bodies where necessary, 
and for joint action where 
possible toward the introduction 
of minimiom standards for the 
welfare of the blind in all 
parts of the world. ..." A 
major purpose of the Council is 
to represent the blind and those 
who work in their service at the 
international level and to place 
the needs and aspirations of the 
blind before the United Nations 
and its specialized agencies, to 
recommend measures for improving 
their standards of living and to 
encourage all social and legis- 
lative action to achieve the full 
integration of the blind in the 
general community. WCWB enjoys 
consultative relationships with 
the Economic and Social Council 
of the United Nations, with the 
ILO, UNESCO, UNICEF and WHO. 

To insure continuity of the 
Council's efforts between 
meetings of the General As- 
sembly, the organization is 
structured into a number of 
regional and standing commit- 
tees. Mr. Ross Purse chairs 
the Committee on Social Develop- 
ment, Mr. Harold G. Roberts 
serves in a similar capacity on 



44 



the Committee on Aid to Develop- 
ing Countries, and Dr. Richard 
Kinney (Hadley School) is Chair- 
man of the Committee on Services 
to the Deaf-Blind. 

In addition to the more than 
140 official delegates, the 
General Assembly was attended 
by approximately 800 observers. 
Prominent leaders in work for 
the blind in countries around 
the world participated actively 
in the professional meetings by 
presenting papers and serving 
on panels dealing with vital 
subjects related to develop- 
ments in all aspects of services 
to blind persons. 

Important resolutions were 
passed by the official delegate 
body on the following subjects: 
prevention of blindness, employ- 
ment opportunities, aid to 
developing countries, pensions, 
research utilization, mobili- 
zation of community resources, 
action for the deaf -blind, 
relationships between the blind 
and other handicapped groups of 
society, access to written com- 
munication, standardization of 
braille, orientation and mobility, 
low vision, and recreational 
activities. 

Mr. Charles Hedkvist (Swedish 
Association of the Blind) , who 
had served as President of the 
Council during the past five 
years presided at the General 
Assembly. (It is sad to note 
that Mr. Hedkvist died quite un- 
expectedly last spring.) Mr. 
Boris V. Zimin (President of 
the All Russia Association of 
the Blind) was elected President 
of WCWB for a five year term 
succeeding Mr. Hedkvist. 



Other highlights of the meeting 
included the following: (1) the 
formation of a new affiliated 
organization, namely the Inter- 
national Agency for the Preven- 
tion of Blindness, which has 
the official support of WHO. 
Sir John Wilson, Director of the 
Royal Commonwealth Society for 
the Blind, has been elected 
President of this organization, 
(2) in addition to RCSB and AFOB, 
two additional international 
organizations were elected to 
membership on the Council. These 
are the Christof f el-Blinden- 
mission and the International 
Services for the Blind. The 
latter is directed by Mr. Roy 
Kumpe who also was present in 
Sao Paulo. (3) Successful 
efforts were made to strengthen 
the financial base of the WCWB 
during the meeting in Sao Paulo 
at which time a large niomber of 
organizations from the more 
developed countries pledged 
additional support for the next 
five year period over and above 
their normal membership fees. 
(4) In addition to Mr. Zimin, 
who as mentioned earlier was 
elected President, the following 
other individuals were elected 
to office: Mr. Anders Arnor 
(Sweden) , Honorary Secretary 
General; Mr. John C. Colligan, 
(U.K.), Honorary Treasurer; and 
Mr. Abdullah M. Al-Ghanim (Saudi 
Arabia) , Mrs. Dorina de Gouvea 
Nowill (Brazil), Mr. Eero 
Hakkinen (Finland), Mr. Hideyuki 
Iwahashi (Japan) , Mr. Mohammed 
Rajhi (Tunisia), Vice-Presidents. 

The next meeting of the 
Executive Board of the Council 
will be held in Saudi-Arabia in 
1977, at which time a determi- 
nation will be made of the 



45 



location of the next quinquennial 
meeting of the General Assembly 
scheduled to be held in 1979.

SPECIAL GENERAL MEETINGS 



MEMBERSHIP LUNCHEON 



19 7 5 AAWB MEMBERSHIP REPORT 

Charles W. Freeman, National Membership Chairman 
Chief, Missouri Bureau for the Blind 



At the last biennial meeting, 
the membership stood at 3,375, 
which represented a very sub- 
stantial growth over the previous 
years. We have now achieved the 
highest membership in the history 
of our organization. To date we 
have 3,494 individual members. 

Another indication of the 
growth of AAWB is the fact that 
we now have 31 chapters , an 
increase of 3 chapters since 
1973. Our leadership under 
Mr. Robert Whitstock has indeed 
been strong in the membership 
area. However, a great deal of 
the credit for such an out- 
standing membership year goes 
to the Membership Chairman, Co- 
Chairmen and Committees who 
are the real workers in the 
soliciting of members. 

I would now like to present 
in numerical order the indi- 
vidual membership standing of 
the chapter and non-chapter 
units.

PRESENTATION 



By 



Roger D. Rouse 
Hadley School for the Blind 



An entire professional life of 
47 years has been devoted to one 
goal — building a world wide edu- 
cation program for the visually 
impaired. Donald Wing Hathaway 
has achieved this goal in his 
life-time and today we honor him 
for his efforts. 

He has been a modest leader 
dynamically building for the 
future. Under his leadership 
the Hadley School for the Blind 
grew in many areas. He began his 
role as leader of this institu- 
tion in 1958 by recruiting a 
strong faculty. In the past 17 
years the faculty has grown from 
12 teachers to its present size 
of 60. Hadley 's influence began 
to spread internationally under 
Don's quiet urging. From zero 
offices outside the United States 
to nine offices in Europe, Africa, 
Asia and South America. The 
curriculum grew also to where 
today, the Hadley School has a 
wide variety of courses not only 
in academic areas but vocational, 
recreational and rehabilitational . 
From the study of braille to the 
introduction of sound media 
Donald Wing Hathaway pioneered 
for the Hadley School . 

He believed in the strength of 
the accreditation process. One 
of his first commitments when he 
assumed operational leadership 
of the Hadley School was to apply 



for accreditation with the 
National Home Study Council in 
1958. He went one step further 
when N.A.C. came into being; 
the Hadley School was ready to 
be accredited by them also. 

However many and great the 
services Don rendered to Hadley 
School, I would be doing him 
and work for the blind in 
general a disservice were I not 
to mention some of his contri- 
butions to the field in general. 
I think that his greatest contri- 
bution has been his participation 
in so many national and inter- 
national meetings in which he 
brought to bear the full weight 
of all his learning and experi- 
ence. Don has always been a 
good wall against which to bounce 
ideas and proposals. His in- 
telligence and openness to 
creative newness was always 
available and receptive. But 
at the same time, his experi- 
ence and preparation in the 
work for the blind enabled him 
to act as a strong and decisive 
critic even though the mode 
and manner was always gentle. 

We shall probably never know 
the extent of this indirect 
influence but I am sure that 
many here today have felt it 
and are proud to admit to it. 
I know that he has formed much 
of my thinking in this area and 



54 



I am certainly proud to say that 
I have learned from Don. Our 
work will continue — new horizons 
are always there--greater suc- 
cesses are always just around 
the corner. Newer generations 
of workers for the blind will 
do more and see further than Don 
because they are standing on his 
shoulders and on the shoulders 
of so many others like him. 

A life of dedication to the 
ideal and the reality of work 



for the blind can be crowned 
with so many satisfactions and 
I heartily hope all of them for 
Don. However, the one satis- 
faction which stands higher than 
all others must be recognition 
by his peers and fellow members 
of AAWB. It is in this context 
and under these most pleasant 
circumstances that I have the 
singular pleasure and privilege 
to present to you Don, the 
Alfred Allen Award. ■

ACCEPTANCE OF THE ALFRED ALLEN AWARD 



Donald Wing Hathaway 



First of all I want to thank 
the Awards Committee for select- 
ing me as the recipient this 
year of the Alfred Allen Memorial 
Award. I am honored . . . but 
I feel unworthy of the honor. 
The Hadley Schools growth has 
been providential over the years: 
I have felt that I happened to 
be in the right place at the 
right time to do what was to be 
done. I accept this Award as 
being a tribute to my whole 
"Hadley Team" for I have been 
only one of many who have over 
the last 55 years contributed 
their strength and know-how to 
the development of the Hadley 
School. Among these many col- 
leagues and co-workers past and 
present who have made the school 
what it is today, one of the 
most outstanding was Alfred 
Allen himself. 

So it is a particular satis- 
faction for me to accept the 
Alfred Allen Memorial Award. 
Alfred Allen was my boss for 
nearly twenty years, in the 



early decades of the Hadley 
School for the Blind — until he 
left Hadley to become Assistant 
Director of the American Founda- 
tion for the Blind in 1944. 

In the spring of 1927, when 
I was a Freshman at Northwestern 
University, I received a phone 
call from Alfred Allen. He 
invited me to visit the Hadley 
School and said they were looking 
for a Spanish teacher. I was 
much impressed by Alfred Allen 
and William A. Hadley, and when 
they asked me whether I would 
be interested in teaching 
Spanish part-time, I seized 
the opportunity. I liked Spanish, 
along with a growing list of 
other courses, during my eight 
years at Northwestern University. 
When I had earned my M.A. , Alfred 
Allen offered me a full-time 
teaching job, which I gladly 
accepted, after following through 
on a Fellowship at the Perkins 
School for the Blind for the 
then Harvard Graduate School 
course in the history of the 
education of the blind. 



55 



In the spring of 1935 I thus 
began working as a full-time 
instructor in the Winnetka of- 
fices of the Hadley School. For 
the next nine years, under Alfred 
Allen's direction, I learned much 
about the "University of Courage" 
as William A. Hadley liked to 
call his School, and about his 
hopes and dreams and the practi- 
cal pursuit of these to make 
them reality. Alfred Allen's 
daily presence and influence 
helped mold my own concept of 
the future of the Hadley School. 

Alfred Allen was a good man to 
work for, firm but understanding. 
His charming rough-hewn manner 
and wry sense of humor endeared 
him to us all. He had served 
in the British Navy during World 
War I , and then came as a young 
man to Chicago, as an accountant 
for the Rolls-Royce Company. He 
himself suffered continual mi- 
graine headaches, from which he 
could get little relief. He 
said little about them, but I 
felt that this suffering had 
something to do with his empathy 
for other people's problems. 

Around 1921 Alfred Allen an- 
swered an ad in a Chicago news- 
paper that said a blind teacher 
needed a part-time secretary, 
and Alfred was soon working 
evenings and week-ends for 
William A. Hadley. His interest 
in the Hadley School grew, and 
as soon as it was incorporated 
in 1922, he was hired as Execu- 
tive Secretary — a job that turned 
out to be more than a full-time 
one for him. 

Alfred Allen always had the 
welfare of blind people at heart. 
It was his idea to lend spring- 
driven record players to Hadley 



students, so that they could read 
disc-recorded books — an idea that 
was taken up by the Library of 
Congress and developed into the 
Talking Book program. He 
developed many practical courses, 
such as Home Economics for the 
blind housewife, and job-oriented 
courses like insurance selling, 
poultry raising, braille short- 
hand, and a specially prepared 
course for would-be blind 
authors. All of us who worked 
with Alfred Allen admired him 
for his dedication and tireless 
labor for the School, and for 
the welfare of blind people. 
His active role as Secretary 
General of the American Asso- 
ciation of Workers for the Blind 
and as Assistant Director of the 
American Foundation for the 
Blind, after he left the Hadley 
School, are a matter of record. 

We who worked for Alfred Allen 
knew him as a hiomble warrior 
. . . a gentle giant ... a 
daily dynamo. He plunged into 
each day's work like a soldier 
"going over the top." Before 
him problems dematerialized. 
Each moment counted. When his 
work was done, he would make 
another trip to the Post Office 
for more mail. Typical of his 
endless energy was the way he 
typed and brailled. We used to 
remark that when he used the 
brailler, it sounded like a 
thrashing machine. Letters 
rolled out like from a press. 
His energy and business sense 
plus William A. Hadley 's edu- 
cational vision and direction 
provided a solid foundation for 
the world's first correspondence 
school for blind students. Under 
their direction, the School grew 
rapidly. 



56 

I seldom saw Alfred Allen after as a great personal loss. At 

he left Hadley — only several that time I wrote this sonnet 

times at AAWB Conventions. But to his memory: 
when he passed away, I felt it 



The warrior sleeps. The flag of battle droops 

At half-mast, to the tolling of the bell. 

While, pausing for new strength, the scattered troops 

Assemble down the field whereon he fell . . . 

Where, with faith's stone, like David in his day. 

He struck the giant. Once, like Israel, 

He wrestled with an angel, and came away 

A Prince with God. No longer sound he knell 

Who was a captain in our earthly wars 

Against one long-embattled citadel: 

His Lord has taken now both pain and scars 

Of the battle wounds he came to know so well. 

He will awaken in a brave new dawn 

Where sight is not of eyes, nor strength of brawn.

Thomas Dickey recipient of the John McAulay Award 



I am very pleased and honored 
to be presenting the John H. 
McAulay Award for outstanding 
achievement in the placement of 
blind persons. I am sure that 
Mr. McAulay would be as pleased 
as we are with this year's 
selection. 

Mr. McAulay made a brilliant 
and lasting contribution to the 
field in promoting and broadening 
occupational areas for the blind — 
so too has Thomas W. Dickey. He 
has done much to shape and mould 
positive attitudes in the coun- 
selors on the productivity and 
worth of blind persons, not only 
in counselors who have attended 
our short course at Southern 
Illinois University but through- 
out the country participating 
in state, regional and national 
conferences, workshops, and in- 
service training programs. 



Mr. Dickey has had a long and 
lustrous career in the "people 
helping business." As a young 
man he worked in a Tuberculosis 
Sanitorium as a Vocational 
Counselor. In 1943 with the 
establishment of agencies for 
the blind, he joined the staff 
of the Pennsylvania Council for 
the Blind as a placement special- 
ist with state wide responsi- 
bilities. As a part of his 
orientation to the job he spent 
some time talking and going out 
for field work with Mr. McAulay ' s 
colleagues, who contributed so 
much to placement, Joe Clunk 
and Art Voorhees. He helped 
develop an on-going program in 
Pennsylvania that led to the 
effective placement of many 
blind persons. 

He did so well with the place- 
ment process that he developed a 



58 



job for himself with Armstrong 
Cork as an Employee Counselor. 
From there he went to Shenango 
China Ink Pottery of New Castle, 
Pennsylvania where he was 
Director of Industrial Relations 
for 16 years. 

In 1961 he decided to return 
to rehabilitation, and at the 
age of 51 enrolled at Southern 
Illinois University--Carbondale 
where he earned a second masters 
degree — this one in Rehabilitation 
Counseling. After graduation he 
served as Executive Director of 
the Phoenix Center for the Blind 
in Phoenix Arizona. 

In 1964 we at Southern Illinois 
University and the Rehabilitation 



Institute persuaded Tom to return 
to Carbondale to help coordinate 
the Placement Counselor Training 
Program where he has performed 
an outstanding job. 

Mr. Dickey — I have been pleased 
to be a part of your life these 
past 11 years and it is with 
great pleasure that I present 
this John H. McAulay Award to 
you in behalf of AAWB, the many 
counselors and blind individuals 
who have profited from just 
knowing you. Also may I extend 
Jewell's and my congratulations 
to both you and Frances on your 
selection as the recipient of 
this great award.

ACCEPTANCE OF THE JOHN H. McAULAY AWARD 
Thomas W. Dickey 



In accepting this award, I see 
myself acting as a representa- 
tive — a representative of all 
those trainees who, after at- 
tending the placement course at 
Carbondale, carried our ideas 
and suggestions back into the 
field and put them into practice 
to develop appropriate jobs for 
qualified blind persons. For 
affording me the opportunity to 
participate in this singular 
training program, I want to 
thank Dr. Guy Renzaglia, and I 
am especially indebted to Lou 
and to George Magers for the 
encouragement, support, and 
instruction they have provided 
over the past 11 years. 

Although I did not know John 
McAulay personally I had the 
opportunity in 1942 to meet and 
work with two of his friends and 
associates, Joe Clunk and Art 
Voorhees. In the placement 
philosophy espoused by all these 
men, and given central importance 
in McAulay 's training courses, 
it was the responsibility of the 
rehabilitation professional doing 
placement to intervene completely 
with the employer on the client's 
behalf. This involved persuading 
the employer to hire a qualified 
blind person, locating a feasible 
job, and, where appropriate, 
assisting in the new employee's 
training and his orientation to 
the physical and social work 
environment. 

It is of some significance 
that the rehabilitation pro- 
fessionals at this time were 
called agents rather than coun- 
selors. By 1970 this approach 



had been almost completely sub- 
merged by the wave of client- 
centered philosophy and values 
which inundated the vocational 
rehabilitation field during the 
50 's and 60 's. During this 
transitional period, the term 
agent was dropped, rehabili- 
tation professionals were known 
as counselors, and a client 
centered approach to placement 
emerged in which the major 
responsibility of the counselor 
was to prepare the client to 
develop his own job seeking 
program. That this approach 
has not been entirely successful 
is attested to by the fact that 
a major emphasis in the 1973 
rehabilitation Act is on place- 
ment of the severely disabled, 
a need which has presumably not 
been met satisfactorily. While 
I can agree that it is un- 
doubtedly beneficial for a 
client to participate as fully 
as he can in obtaining his own 
employment, I am equally 
certain that there are many 
instances where the successful 
employment of severely impaired 
clients cannot be achieved 
without appropriate intervention 
by the counselor on the client's 
behalf. A placement program 
designed to meet todays needs 
then would combine the best 
elements of the client-centered 
job-seeking skills approach 
with a revitalized and relevant 
adaptation of the philosophy 
and practice espoused by John 
McAulay. 

My strong conviction of this 
point makes the receiving of 
this award especially meaningful.

and I wish to express my grati- 
tude and sincere appreciation to 



all those who helped to bring 
it about. 



PRESENTATION OF THE PAST PRESIDENT'S AWARD 

To 

Texas Chapter 
Accepted by 



Janie Fox Jones 
President, Texas Chapter of AAWB 

Presentation by 

Howard Hanson, Director 
Services to the Blind and Visually Handicapped 
Pierre, South Dakota 






This year the Past President's 
Award is being presented to the 
Texas Chapter of AAWB which, 
since its organization in 1968, 
has demonstrated outstanding 
capacity for growth — not only in 
membership, but more importantly, 
for its substantive contribution 
to improving work for the blind. 

The Texas Chapter was organized 
in June 1968, with only 29 
members, Mr. Burt L. Risley was 
elected as the first President 
and he, along with 5 of the 
original 29 members, are here 
to see Texas accept this award. 

Under the strong leadership 
of the current president, Janie 
Fox Jones and the membership 
chairperson, Julia Young, at the 
present time the Texas Chapter 
has in excess of 400 members 
including representatives from 
a variety of professions, edu- 
cation, medicine, rehabilitation, 
and blind persons themselves. 
This membership constellation 



provides a forum for the develop- 
ment of mutual cooperation and 
interchange of ideas among the 
variety of interested parties 
in work for the blind in Texas. 

Chapter meetings have been 
held annually since 1958. 
Program activities have in- 
cluded a variety of presenta- 
tions regarding activities on 
a national, regional and state 
level and related to legis- 
lative issues, educational 
services, medical developments, 
aids and appliances for the 
blind, services to the deaf- 
blind, and activities generated 
by all the interest groups 
within the National AAWB 
organization. 

Participation in Chapter 
meetings has grown from the 29 
in 1968 to 425 at the conference 
this past June. 

This degree of participation 
and interest in Texas Chapter 



61 



activities has broadened into 
participation on the national 
level as exemplified by the fact 
that about 20% of the membership 
of the Texas Chapter of AAWB 
is participating in this National 
AAWB Conference. 



All of this makes Texas Chapter 
truly the outstanding Chapter 
of the National AAWB Organization 
for 1975. 



ACCEPTANCE OF THE PAST PRESIDENT'S AWARD 
(Mrs.) Janie Fox Jones 



On behalf of the Texas Chapter 
of AAWB, it truly is a great 
honor to accept the Past- 
President's award. 

When membership in an organi- 
zation continues to grow, it 
usually is an indication that 
something vital, worthwhile, 
and important is happening. I 
would like to mention just a 
few of the many factors which 
we think have contributed to 
growth in the Texas Chapter. 

First, if we are to believe 
the wonderful stories that 
Mr. Whitstock tells about 
Texans--and we certainly do 
believe them — then we must 
conclude that Texans are-- 
among other things — imagina- 
tive, rather bold people who 
work together and trust each 
other. In delivery of serv- 
ices to visually handicapped 
persons in our state, we are 
working together and trust- 
ing each other. As a result, 
we feel that our clients and 
students are the beneficiar- 
ies. The members of our 
chapter truly represent this 
"team" of workers for the 
blind and from this we draw 
strength. One group which 
has inspired us all is our 



group of over 100 secretaries 
and other supportive workers 
who are contributing so much 
to work for the blind and 
are thoroughly involved in 
the activities of our 
chapter. 

The second factor which has 
promoted growth is the 
development of active Chapter 
Interest Groups. 

The third item perhaps should 
have been mentioned first — 
because it happened first 
and that is the incomparable 
support and leadership pro- 
vided by Mr. Burt Risley 
and the staff of the Texas 
Commission for the Blind in 
organizing the Texas Chapter 
of AAWB. This strong and 
continuing support is some- 
thing that cannot be de- 
scribed, but only experi- 
enced. If you are from 
Texas, you know what I mean. 

The last factor that I would 
like to mention is our secret 
weapon- -our marvelous member- 
ship chairman, Mrs. Julia 
Young. I have asked Mrs. 
Young to join me on the 
platform to accept the Past 
President's award. 



62 



We consider this award not only 
a great honor, but also a chal- 



lenge. Thank you very much.

PRESENTATION OF MEDAL 

By 

Louis H. Rives, Jr. 
Director of Research, Arkansas Enterpriese 
for the Blind, Inc. 



Mr. President, Distinguished 
Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen: 

It is indeed a pleasure for me 
to have a part tonight in honor- 
ing a long-time friend and col- 
league for whom I have sincere 
affection, respect and admi- 
ration. I think those who have 
been selected to receive the 
Shotwell Award feel a special 
sense of pride for two reasons. 
First, it places you in a select 
company of those who have stead- 
fastly fought for and achieved 
progress for blind people. 



Secondly, you are placed in that 
company by your own colleagues 
and peers, the members of the 
American Association of Workers 
for the Blind who know your work 
at firsthand. It has to be a 
great personal satisfaction to 
be placed in the company of 
Helen Keller, Mary Switzer, 
Francis Cummings, and Peter 
Salmon, and placed there by 
those who know you best. 

Throughout your distinguished 
career you have demonstrated 
and continue to demonstrate the

qualities of leadership which 
make for greatness. In 1938 you 
were elected president of the 
Arkansas School for the Blind 
Alumni. In 1939 you organized 
Arkansas Enterprises for the 
Blind but more of this later. ' ■ 
You helped organize and served 
as president of the National 
Council of State Agencies 
Serving the Blind. You have 
served the AAWB in many important 
capacities: as an influential 
member of the Legislative Com- ■ « 
mittee and the Board of Direc- 
tors, and as president from 
1951 to 1953. You helped the 
Commission on Standards and 
Accreditation to develop stand- 
ards for rehabilitation centers 
and you now serve as a member 
of the National Accreditation 
Council. You have served on 
the Board of the American Foun- 
dation for the Blind and as 
charter president of the National 
Council of Rehabilitation Centers 
for the Blind. You have also 
given generously of your time 
to the strengthening of services 
to the blind throughout the 
world by serving as a consultant 
in Mexico and El Salvador, and 
by establishing the International 
Services for the Blind as a 
focal point for training pro- 
fessional personnel from all 
over the world. 

In addition to all of these 
achievements you have made 
important contributions to 
International Lionism about 
which Mr. Davis will talk in 
greater detail and you have also 
been a civic leader in your city 
and state. These achievements 
have brought richly deserved 
recognition; for example, you 
have received an award from the 
Arkansas Association of Vending 



Stand Operators and the Migel 
Medal, the highest award of the 
American Foundation for the 
Blind. 

Of those who have received the 
Shotwell Award since H. R. 
Latimer and Charles W. Holmes 
in 1939, you are the first who 
has made a major contribution 
by developing and perfecting a 
nationally recognized rehabili-,. 
tation center for the blind, a 
center which it might be boast- 
ful for a fellow Arkansan to 
say is the best rehabilitation 
center in the world, but of 
which it is just plain Arkansas 
honesty to say there is none 
better. 

I remember when we first met 
in 1944 when you represented the 
entire staff of the Arkansas 
agency involved in services for 
the blind at a training session 
to explore the new Vocational 
Rehabilitation Act. I remember 
at that time how you constantly 
sought to find ways in which 
federal funds could be used 
better to serve blind people. 
This characteristic has stayed 
with you ever since. You are 
never satisfied with what exists 
but constantly seek more ef- 
fective ways to help blind 
people achieve dignity and 
independence. For your courage 
to dream, for your capacity to 
translate dreams into tangible 
reality, for your belief in 
blind people, and for your 
continuing efforts to use all 
of your skills, resources, and 
faith in behalf of those to 
whom you have dedicated your 
life, I present to you, Roy 
Kumpe, the Ambrose M. Shotwell 
Distinguished Service Medal.

PRESENTATION OF THE AMBROSE M, 
MEMORIAL SCROLL 



SHOTWELL 



By 



Finis E. Davis, Vice President and 
General Manager, American Printing House 
for the Blind, Inc. 



President Whitstock, Mrs. 
Roberts, (President AEVH) , Of- 
ficers, Directors, Fellow 
Members of AAWB and guests: 

This is indeed a delightful 
occasion and I consider it a 
privilege and high honor to 
present to Dr. Roy Kumpe the 
Scroll as a part of the Ambrose 
M. Shotwell Distinguished Service 
Award presentation on behalf of 
the membership of this great 
Association. I cannot think of 
a more deserving person to 
receive this Distinguished 
Award than Roy Kumpe, Director 
of the Arkansas Enterprises 
for the Blind and the Inter- 
national Services for the Blind, 
one of the most widely known 
and outstanding rehabilitation 
facilities in the nation — 
serving the blind in many 
states and several nations of 
the world. 

I well remember when Roy came 
into work for the blind in 1939, 
the year I became superintendent 
of the Arkansas School for the 
Blind. We have been working 
closely together since. At that 
time, he was a recent graduate 
of the Little Rock Law School 
and was being paid a small 
salary by the state department 
of welfare to develop a vending 
stand program, but no funds were 
made available to establish 
stands. We are honoring a man 



tonight who had the vision, the 
faith and courage to act under 
difficult circumstances. The 
Little Rock Lions Club provided 
the funds on a loan basis to 
set up the first vending stand 
in the State under Roy's leader- 
ship. A Lions Committee was 
formed and this was the beginning 
of a relationship that has made 
possible the present rehabili- 
tation facilities at Arkansas 
Enterprises for the Blind. 

Roy, being an alumnus of the 
School for the Blind, was very 
much interested in education of 
blind and I was interested in 
work for the blind. We felt 
education and work for the blind 
should go forward hand in hand. 
We both attended the AAIB and 
AAWB conventions — in fact, we 
shared a room most of the time — 
I would report to his wife and 
he would report to mine — and I 
tell you--you have never seen 
two more straight-laced young 
men at the conventions than we 
were. How am I doing, Roy? 
We became very close friends 
and shared many ideas — we still 
do. 

The idea of the Little Rock 
Lions Club pre-vocational center 
for adult blind, forerunner to 
the present rehabilitation 
facility, came into being as 
a result of our discussion on 
a train ride home from one of 



66 



our AAWB conventions. I was 
telling Roy about one of our 
recent innovations at the school 
for the blind, called the Social 
Adjustment Program. This was 
quite a change in the philosophy 
of education of the blind at 
that time. We were preparing 
units of instruction in such 
things as personal appearance, 
table etiquette (boys and girls 
were eating together in the 
dining room), cane travel, 
posture, mannerisms, dancing, 
introductions and all the social 
graces to live in a sighted world. 
We also planned activities and 
special events that would pro- 
vide opportunities for the 
students to put into practice 
the things they were being 
taught. 

Roy felt that many of the 
things being done in the Social 
Adjustment Program would be very 
helpful to many adults with whom 
he was working in the vending 
stand and placement program. 
We presented the idea to the 
Little Rock Lions Club and it 
was approved as a project of the 
Club in 1945. In 1946, when I 
was President of the Club, we 
raised the first $10,000 to rent 
a facility for the pre-vocational 
adjustment center for adult blind. 
Roy spent much time that year 
finding suitable furnishings 
with limited funds — fortunately 
two Japanese relocation centers 
in the state were being phased 
out that year and he was able 
to secure a great deal of the 
equipment through government 
sources. The facility was dedi- 
cated with the Governor of the 
State as principal speaker. The 
following year the project was 
adopted by the Lions of Arkansas 
as a state project. During that 
year, in 1947, I left the state 



to become Superintendent of the 
American Printing House for the 
Blind in Louisville, Kentucky. 
What a tremendous success 
story — this project has become 
under Roy's leadership — a multi- 
million dollar rehabilitation 
center with an outstanding 
professional staff, serving the 
nation and even the blind of 
other countries. ■ , 

One of the highlights of my 
year as President of Lions 
International was when Roy 
invited me to join with him 
again to speak at the dedi- 
cation of the first three new 
buildings of the present facili- 
ty. Much has already been said 
about Roy's work for the blind 
and the honors he has received — 
let me just say that Roy has 
also been a very active member 
of Lions International . He 
was the Charter President of 
the Park Plaza Lions Club in 
Little Rock, and served his 
district as District Governor. 
He has received the two highest 
awards presented by Lions Inter- 
national — the Ambassador of 
Good Will and the Humanitarian 
Award in recognition of his 
service to hiomanity. Inci- 
dentally, Danny Thomas received 
the Humanitarian Award at the 
International Convention in 
Dallas this year. 

The values of a great man are 
not measured in dollars, or 
bushels, or pounds — the greatest 
values in a man's life are 
spiritual values, measured by 
the height of his integrity, 
the width of his humility and 
the depth of his sincerity. 
Tonight we are honoring a man 
who has contributed much in 
education and work for the blind. 
Roy, I am proud of you — your 



67 



friendship and assistance have 
meant a very great deal to me 
through the years. If you will 
come forward, I shall be de- 
lighted to present to you, on 
behalf of your colleagues in 
work for the blind, the Ambrose 
M. Shotwell Distinguished Service 
Award Scroll. Bernice Kumpe is 
indeed a beautiful and charming 



southern lady and what a tremen- 
dous help and support she has 
been to Roy through the years . 
Bernice, I would like to ask 
you to join with Roy, here, 
while I present the Scroll — 
aren't they a wonderful couple.

ACCEPTANCE OF THE AMBROSE M. SHOTWELL AWARD 
Roy Kumpe 



Mr. Chairman, Mr. Rives, Mr. 
Davis, honored guests and fellow 
members of AAWB: 

There are so many thoughts rush- 
ing through my mind which I would 
like to express in appreciation 
and gratitude for this occasion, 
yet I find it impossible to say 
all I would like to. So many 
persons in my life have helped 
me to achieve this distinguished 
honor that I could not mention 
all of them in the time allowed. 
No one individual can do enough 
to earn the honor which you have 
bestowed upon me without the sup- 
port and help of family and co- 
workers. Therefore, may I 
accept this medal and scroll first 
in behalf of my wife, Bernice 
and my family, and then the loyal 
and dedicated staff of Arkansas 
Enterprises for the Blind, 
present, and in the years past. 
Certainly I should mention Lila 
Lampkin, who has been my secre- 
tary and administrative assistant 
for 29 years. 

Now I could say a lot of good 
things about these two, fine, 
ole friends of many years, who 
just made these presentations. 
I first met Lou Rives in Washing- 
ton while I was attending a 
training seminar for Supervisors 
of Service for the Blind and 
Vocational Rehabilitation Services. 
It was his role to explain the 
new Barden-Lafolette amendments 
of 1943 which really opened up 
opportunities of vocational 
rehabilitation for the blind. 
Over the years we have become 



close friends and he has not only 
been an inspiration but a genuine 
help to all of us in developing 
opportunities for the blind. We 
are humbly grateful that he chose 
to cast his lot with us in Little 
Rock after 30 years of dedicated 
service with the federal govern- 
ment. 

In 1941 in Indianapolis, Finis 
Davis and I attended our first 
conference of the American 
Association of Workers for the 
Blind. He was appointed Super- 
intendent of the School for the 
Blind in 1939, the same year I 
agreed to start a program for 
the adult blind. We were both 
young enough to have ambition 
and enough energy to learn and 
contribute to our chosen pro- 
fession. He was the first young 
person chosen as Superintendent 
of the School for the Blind who 
had previous experience in the 
School as a teacher. We have 
always worked together to edu- 
cate blind children and for the 
rehabilitation of adults. It 
was a coincidence that he was 
serving as President of the 
American Association of In- 
structors for the Blind the 
same time I was serving as 
President of this organization. 
Because we had worked so closely 
together, we thought we could 
make an important contribution 
to the total field of education 
and rehabilitation of the blind 
by getting our professional 
organizations to work closer 
together through a joint con- 
ference. We did succeed in 



69 



having a "simultaneous meeting" 
in Louisville, Kentucky, in 
1952. I think that was the 
closest that the two organi- 
zations have ever been together — 
before or since. In Arkansas 
we all are very proud of Finis 
Davis' achievements as head of 
the American Printing House for 
the Blind and his contributions 
to international Lionism as its 
president. I especially enjoyed 
watching his career in Lionism 
since we both joined the Little 
Rock Lions Club about the same 
t time. 

When I was elected president 
of this organization at Daytona 
Beach in 1952, I recall that in 
my acceptance speech I tried to 
express the thought that somehow, 
someway I might assist in 
boosting the "professionalism" 
of our profession. My feeling 
was that we should seek out 
young ambitious persons from 
all disciplines and try to 
influence them to come into 
work for the blind. At my first 
AAWB conference I was impressed 
with the sincerity and dedi- 
cation of the members there, 
yet I was surprised at how many 
had never really trained or 
prepared for this field. Like 
me they were primarily in it 
by accident or chance. With 
the new opportunities of train- 
ing that were opened by the 
amendments to the Vocational 
Rehabilitation Act, I thought 
more young people should be 
recruited into our profession. 
Well we have seen this happen 
over the years, and it's most 
gratifying to see how many blind 
and sighted persons have en- 
thusiastically accepted the 
challenge in both education 
and rehabilitation programs of 



the blind. I won't take the time 
to try to review the highlights 
of the progress in rehabilitation 
of the blind during the years 
but I fully recommend for your 
reading, Leonard Robertson's 
book, LIGHT AT THE TUNNEL'S END. 
This is the story of the work 
done by him and many other 
individuals and organizations 
in behalf of the passage of the 
Randolph-Shepard Act of 1936 
and the results thereof. He 
tells the story of his set- 
backs, disappointments, and 
achievements very well. How- 
ever, one chapter is rather sad 
and would be hard to explain to 
someone unfamiliar with the 
rehabilitation of the blind. 
That is the story of how he 
was turned down by the AAWB 
conference. A resolution which 
he prepared to endorse the 
Randolph-Shepard bill became 
so controversial on the floor 
that it was tabled. The leaders 
of that day and time were "blind" 
to the possibilities of employ- 
ing blind persons in the vending 
stand program in federal build- 
ings. It is rather amusing, if 
it were not so tragic, that one 
of the arguments against it was 
that the bill was unconstitu- 
tional . 

Now why did I mention this? 
We are living in a time of 
abundance and a time of poverty, 
at time of success for many 
blind persons. Every state 
has a rehabilitation agency 
with federal and state funds. 
Each has a trained and competent 
professional staff. Many private 
agencies like ours (Arkansas 
Enterprises for the Blind) , are 
growing and delivering services. 
We have a complete library 
services, radio-book services. 



70 



Supplementary Security Income, 
and many organizations of and 
for the blind. AAWB has greatly 
increased its membership with 
regionalization meetings. AAIB 
has become ADEH with regional 
meetings. Certainly blind per- 
sons have greater opportunity 
for education, rehabilitation 
and employment in this country 
than ever in its history. As 
we come into the Bicentennial 
celebration, there are many op- 
portunities and options that 
blind people have for which we 
can rejoice, be proud of and 
grateful for. 

What am I trying to say? I 
would like to briefly make a 
plea for our many organizations 
of the blind and for the blind 
to reach a maturity where we 
can cooperate and work together 
for the benefit of the total 
group. It is certainly grati- 
fying to us who have worked so 
hard to bring about standards 
for accreditation, to know that 
the contributing public, the 
taxpayer and most of all the 
blind person and their family, 
are protected, to insure that 
they receive the service to 
which they are entitled. Why 
would an organization of the 
blind, dedicated to getting equal 
opportunities for blind persons, 
oppose the goals of an organi- 
zation who is trying to raise 
standards of service to the "con- 
sumer." When we look at the 
numbers, reported by credible 
organizations, of blind and 
visually handicapped, both adults 
and children, certainly we are a 
minority, and yet it is puzzling 
to the public why there are so 
many organizations and agencies 
in the field who do not coordi- 
nate or cooperate in their 
services. My plea, friends, is 



that we all dedicate ourselves to 
working towards maturity for our 
organizations of the blind and 
for the blind. Through a unified 
or cooperative program we can 
certainly make an impact on 
congress, state legislative 
bodies and we can modify the 
attitude of the uninformed pub- 
lic about the abilities of blind 
persons . 

In closing, once again I want 
to say how humbly grateful I am 
for all my friends who have made 
this night possible for me. I 
am especially grateful to the 
founders of the American Associ- 
ation of Workers for the Blind. 
I suppose it is through my 
membership and activities in 
AAWB that I was influenced to 
stay in this work. I am grate- 
ful because it has been a re- 
warding experience. But to you 
younger members there are many 
more opportunities. Someone 
once said "there is a destiny 
that makes us brothers. No man 
lives alone. All that we send 
into the lives of others will 
come back into our own." Although 
my motivation has been a deep 
desire to serve others, I confess 
I have received more in return 
than I have been able to give.

PRESENTATION OF THE LAWRENCE E. BLAHA 
MEMORIAL AWARD 

To 

Russell C. Williams 

Retired, Chief of Blind Rehabilitation, Veterans 

Administration Central Office 



Presentation by 

Robert J. Crouse, Ed.D. 
Executive Director, Atlanta Area Services 
for the Blind 



Mr. Chairman, ladies and gentle- 
men. It is a great privilege 
for me as immediate past chair- 
man of Interest Group IX to be 
here today to present the 
Lawrence E. Blaha Memorial Award. 

I would first like to take a 
moment for the sake of the newer 
members of this interest group 
to acquaint you with the man for 
whom this award was named, 
Lawrence E. Blaha. Mr. Blaha 
began his career as an orientor 
in the Blind Rehabilitation Pro- 
gram, Veteran's Administration 
Hospital, Hines, Illinois in 1948. 
He worked there until 1951 when 
he joined the faculty of the 
mobility program at Western 
Michigan University. Later, Mr. 
Blaha was Director of the Orienta- 
tion and Mobility Training Pro- 
gram at California State College, 
Los Angeles. Larry Blaha was 
not only one of the early pio- 
neers in the development of 
orientation and mobility but 
more importantly his dedication, 
sense of high standards, ideals 
and technical skills made him 
the epitome of what mobility 



instructors should be. 

Therefore, Interest Group IX 
resolved in 1968 to establish 
the Lawrence E. Blaha Memorial 
Award to be given to an indi- 
vidual who has rendered out- 
standing services in the field 
of orientation and mobility in 
hopes that the ideals and 
example of Mr. Blaha will be 
remembered and promulgated. 

It is most fitting that this 
year's recipient was a close 
associate of Mr. Blaha. In 
fact, he is a man who has a 
near legendary background in 
development of orientation and 
mobility and rehabilitation 
programs for blinded veterans . 
He is a man who spans the time 
from Valley Forge to Hines and 
who was instrumental in the 
idea and implementation of the 
first graduate level training 
programs in mobility at the 
Boston College and Western 
Michigan University. 

It is a distinct honor to 
present this year's Lawrence E. 



72 



Blaha Memorial Award to Mr. 
Russell C. Williams. Mr. Williams 
recently retired from the Veter- 
an's Administration after 31 
years of service to blind veter- 
ans beginning in 1944 at Valley 
Forge . 

Mr. Williams was born in Auburn, 
Indiana in 1918 and graduated as 
a secondary education major from 
Central Normal College in Dan- 
ville, Illinois. He taught and 
coached athletics one year before 
entering the U.S. Army in 1942. 

Mr. Williams was blinded by 
enemy action in France during 
1944 and was rehabilitated at 
Valley Forge General Hospital 
and Old Farms Convalescent 
Hospital. He was later employed 
as a Counselor and Instructor in 
the rehabilitation program for 
the blind at Valley Forge General 
Hospital. In 1948, Mr. Williams 
became the first Chief of the 
Blind Rehabilitation Center, 
V.A. Hospital, Hines, Illinois. 
Eleven years later, Russ was 
promoted to Chief of Blind 
Rehabilitation in the Department 
of Medicine and Surgery, Veter- 
ans Administration Central Office 
in Washington, D.C. He served 
in that post until his retire- 
ment earlier this month. 

Russell Williams is probably 
best known for his significant 
accomplishments in developing 
the rehabilitation program at 
Hines of which orientation and 
mobility was the key factor. 
Russ was responsible for the 
recruitment, selection and train- 
ing of the very first orientors 
at Hines. His first hand experi- 
ence, knowledge of mobility and 
own performance skills in mobility 
were key factors in the refinement 



of standardized techniques in 
mobility instruction. His 
example in mobility was a 
perfect model for newly blinded 
veterans to emulate and I am 
sure was largely responsible 
for the success the fledgling 
orientors had with the early 
Hines veterans. 

Mr. Williams has acted as an 
advisor on research and develop- 
ment of electronic guidance 
devices and demonstrated such 
devices at congressional hear- 
ings and in a film which has 
been seen on many television 
stations . 

Mr. Williams was chosen for 
the Blinded Veterans association 
Achievement Award in 1953. Part 
of that Commendation reads as 
follows : 

"Russell Williams' achievements 
have been more than a personal 
victory over blindness. His 
empathy, his ability to com- 
municate and his confidence 
in other people have made him 
an outstanding leader. His 
unceasing efforts in behalf 
of blinded individuals are 
internationally acclaimed. 
There is a touch of greatness 
about him, tempered by his 
modesty, his objectivity and 
his common sense." 

The Lawrence E. Blaha Memorial 
Award is hereby made to Russell 
C. Williams for his dedication 
in developing rehabilitation 
programs for blinded veterans 
and non-veterans alike, and for 
his highly significant contri- 
butions to the betterment of 
orientation and mobility for 
blind persons over the past 
three decades .

ACCEPTANCE OF THE LAWRENCE E. BLAHA MEMORIAL AWARD 
Russell C. Williams 



with deepest sincerity I thank 
the AAWB for presenting me with 
its Lawrence Blaha Memorial Award 
at this year's National Conven- 
tion. No recognition which I 
have received or could receive 
gives me more pleasure, which 
will be lasting, than this one. 

There are three reasons for 
my feeling this way: 1. The 
award was made by the AAWB , an 
organization representing people 
who have done so much for blind 
people for so many years. Having 
been a blind person for thirty- 
one years and having been in- 
volved in services to other blind 
people for almost all of that 
time I feel I know something 
about what contributions came 
out of the past from many people 
who were and are in this organi- 
zation. 2. The award associates 
me with the work of Interest 
Group 9 of this organization. 
When my own blindness came to 
me I felt a tremendous loss in 
my ability to perceive and 
orient in surroundings and be 
mobile in them. To be considered 
to have made a contribution to 
the profession which is working 
to reduce this loss makes me 



proud. 3. The award associ- 
ates me with Larry Blaha and 
also with those who have and 
will receive this award in other 
years. I worked with Larry from 
the day he entered this field 
and I know much about what he 
did and represented. We worked 
together for the same blinded 
people at Hines for a number of 
years and there I saw his master- 
pieces of planning and teaching. 
Later, when he transferred to 
university work I saw his re- 
markable abilities go into the 
development of teachers . I was 
blessed to know him and wish 
that those who missed him could 
have done so. 

Orientation and Mobility did 
so much for me as a blinded 
person that for any contribution 
I might have made to it was 
multiply paid for in advance 
by it. It is a great feeling 
to see this profession continue 
to grow and to watch the benefits 
reach more and more blind people. 
Thanks for including me in with 
Larry Blaha and the others whose 
science and art help people with 
the everyday business of blind- 
ness .

ARTICLE VIII 

Chapters 

Section 1. Chapters may be 
organized and represented on 
the Board of Directors under the 
following policies, with the 
proviso that where it is not 
practical for a chapter to be 
organized within a state, one 
may be organized composed of 
either two or more states, or 
parts of a state, subject to 
the approval of the Board of 
Directors: 

a. That all members of a chap- 
ter shall be members of the AAWB 
in good standing. 

b. That a chapter shall in- 
clude: a minimum of 50 members 
in a jurisdiction with a popu- 
lation in excess of 2,000,000; 
30 members in a jurisdiction 
with a population of 1,000,000 
to 2,000,000; 20 members in a 
jurisdiction with a population 
of 500,000 to 1,000,000; and 

10 members in a jurisdiction 
with a population of less than 
500,000 (the foregoing popu- 
lation counts to be based on 
the most recently approved 
U.S. Census) . 



d. That the Dominion of 
Canada shall be authorized to 
organize a chapter on the same 
basis as a state with more than 
2,000,000 population. 

e. That each chapter shall be 
expected to meet at least once 
per year. 

f. That chapters agree to aid 
in planning and to support and to 
participate in regional meetings 
sponsored by AAWB in their area. 

g. That chapters agree to 
collect all dues for individual 
members, all payments for install- 
ments on life membership and all 
dues from organizations within 
their jurisdiction which may wish 
to become members thereof. The 
chapter shall retain 1/5 of the 
aforementioned dues and payments, 
except that, in the case of 
agency memberships (sponsor, 
sustaining, patron and bene- 
factor agencies) , chapters shall 
retain only 1/5 of the minimum 
dues for a sponsor agency. In 
case of agency memberships 
billed by and paid directly to 
the National headquarters , the 
chapter within whose juris- 
diction that agency is located 
shall be reimbursed by the 



93 



National Headquarters in the 
amount of 1/5 of the minimum 
dues for a sponsor agency. Where 
a payment of individual dues, 
payments for or installments on 
life membership have been made 
to the National Headquarters for 
any calendar year, and subse- 
quently during the year a 
chapter is organized, the pay- 
ment shall be considered as a 
payment for membership in the 
chapter and 1/5 of the payment 
shall be returned to the chapter. 
All such payments retained by or 
returned to the chapter shall be 
used exclusively for the purposes 
directly related to the strength- 
ening and expansion of the work 
of a chapter and for the advance- 
ment of the mission of the 
American Association of Workers 
for the Blind. 



ARTICLE X 

Quorum 

Section 1. At any biennial or 
special meeting of the Associ- 
ation, 5 percent of the Regular 
and Life members present and in 
good standing shall constitute a 
quorum. At any meeting of the 
Board of Directors, a majority 
of the Directors shall constitute 
a quorum. 



ARTICLE XI 

Amendments to the By-Laws 

Section 1. These By-laws may 
be amended at any regular Bien- 
nial Business Meeting by a 
majority vote of the members 
present and voting, provided: 



ARTICLE IX 



Parliamentary Authority 



a. That the amendment has 
been approved by the Board of 
Directors; or 



Section 1. This Association, 
except as otherwise provided in 
its Constitution and By-laws, 
shall be governed in all its 
meetings by parliamentary law 
as contained in ROBERTS RULES 
OF ORDER, REVISED. 



b. That the amendment has 
been proposed in writing and 
signed by twenty-five (25) 
members in good standing. 



Section 2. Upon opening the 
biennial meeting, the President 
shall announce the name of the 
qualified member who is regis- 
tered for the convention and who 
has agreed to serve as Parlia- 
mentarian.

THE PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS 



Harold G. Roberts 



May I welcome you once again to 
Portland for this the 47th con- 
vention of our Association. All 
of you will join me, I am sure, 
in expressing our appreciation to 
the members of the Host Committee, 
under the able leadership of 
Lester Swope, for their diligence 
in arranging for our comfort. 

May I also take this opportunity 
to tell you how grateful I feel 
for the privilege of serving as 
your President during the past 
biennium. Although this office 
involves heavy and time-consuming 
responsibilities, the burden has 
been immeasurably lightened by 
the fine cooperation of my fellow 
officers and directors, and by 
the many members who so willingly 
served on numerous committees. 
There is not sufficient time to 
identify all of these individuals 
this morning, but their names will 
be spread throughout the published 
proceedings of this convention. 
I would be remiss, however, if I 
failed to publicly express my 
appreciation to our Immediate 
Past President, Bob Whitstock, 
for his wise counsel which helped 
me to avoid many pitfalls, and to 
our Executive Director, Bruce 
Blasch, whose only fault is 
insomnia which cost me many hours 
of sleep as we travelled around 
the country together. 



After 82 years, AAWB is alive 
and well as we meet in Portland, 
Oregon. Our membership is com- 
posed of 2,879 individuals and 
121 agencies organized into 31 
chapters. The average attendance 
at meetings of the Board of 
Directors during this biennium 
has been 35 and the scars I wear 
are ample proof that they are an 
articulate and lively group. 

There is no doubt in my mind 
that the strength of our organi- 
zation lies in our membership, and 
that their collective energy has 
been liberated by the decentrali- 
zation of our structure. One need 
only to sample a few state chapter 
and regional meetings to learn 
how true this is. These meetings 
provide a unique and regular 
mechanism for professional growth 
and exchange of information, as 
well as collective action to 
advance services and benefits for 
blind persons. 

However, as often happens, 
change can be a mixed blessing. 
Although decentralization has 
served to revitalize our Associ- 
ation, new problems have emerged. 
On the management level, it seems 
to me that we need to devise a 
more efficient system for collection 
of dues and for maintenance of 
mailing lists. And we have to 



cope with the resultant increase 
in demands being made upon our 
national office with its limited 
staff. I believe also that a 
need exists for a thorough review 
leading to a more sharply defined 
understanding of the interrelation- 
ship among the three levels of our 
organization — national , regional , 
and state. Moreover, ideas have 
already come forward spontaneously 
for altering the composition of 
our Board of Directors and for 
changing our voting procedures 
in the interest of further 
strengthening grass roots control. 
I suspect that a number of con- 
structive changes will occur in 
the immediate years ahead. 

Perhaps the most serious problem 
confronting our Association is the 
matter of finance. We faced simi- 
lar problems during my term of 
office as Treasurer in the 1971- 
73 biennium. Acting together 
with our then President, Cleo 
Dolan, and President-Elect Robert 
Whitstock, a concerted and success- 
ful effort was made to put our 
financial house in order. The 
size of our staff and office space 
was reduced, and with the able 
assistance of Dean George 
Mallinson, who agreed to serve 
as Chairman of the Publications 
Advisory Committee, significant 
economies were introduced in our 
publications program. And in 
1973, the membership approved a 
modest dues increase. In addi- 
tion, our investment policies 
were revised to secure an in- 
creased yield from our general 
assets. At that time, we com- 
mitted ourselves to a policy of 
financial self-sufficiency in 
order to avoid the swings in our 
fiscal stability by over-reliance 
upon external support which 
adversely affected our program. 



These actions proved to be suc- 
cessful at least initially. During 
the 1973-75 biennium we operated 
with a balanced budget. However, 
in the first year of the current 
bienniiom, it was possible to avoid 
an operating deficit only because 
of the happenstance of an un- 
anticipated legacy. During this 
fiscal year, although a balanced 
budget has been adopted, it 
appears that we face a deficit 
of several thousand dollars. 

I would be remiss if I failed 
to call your attention to the 
hard fact that between January 
1973 and March 1977, the National 
Consumer Price index rose from 
127.7 to 178.2, an increase of 
50.5 points or 39^5 percent. 
Obviously, since our Association 
is not exempt from these economic 
factors anymore than you or your 
agencies are, our operating costs 
have increased accordingly during 
the past four years . 

In grappling with all of these 
problems, your Board of Directors, 
at its May meeting, authorized 
the establishment of an ad hoc 
committee to recommend appropriate 
solutions. To our good fortune, 
our President-Elect, Mary K. 
Bauman, agreed to chair this 
committee, which has already been 
meeting. It would be inappropriate 
for me to attempt to predict this 
important committee ' s final recom- 
mendations, but I believe it is 
safe to say that one partial 
solution at least is to strive 
for increased memberships. And 
unquestionably, the best recruiter 
is a current member. 

On the positive side, a number 
of gains have been made during 
the past biennium. Our general 
assets have grown from $46,716 to 



$68,595; our accounting and audit- 
ing procedures have been strength- 
ened; central files in the national 
office have been thoroughly re- 
organized; and the system for 
providing our members with a 
reduced rate subscription to the 
Journal of Visual Impairment and 
Blindness (formerly the New Out- 
look for the Blind) , has been 
simplified. 

A major accomplishment has been 
the preparation and adoption of 
policy statements expressing 
AAWB's position on a number of 
important issues dealing with 
professional qualifications, the 
umbrella concept, the role of 
workshops and work activity centers, 
research, legislation, low vision 
and consumerism. These statements 
constitute a useful tool in con- 
ducting our Association's social 
action activities, both nationally 
and locally. For this we are 
greatly indebted to Harold 
Richterman and to the members of 
the Chapter and Regionalization 
Committee which he so ably chaired. 

Also, our Association has been 
influential in the preservation 
and upgrading of the Office for 
the Blind and Visually Handicapped 
in the Rehabilitation Services 
Administration. The recent loss 
of our good friend and leader, 
Douglas Mac Farland, increased 
our activities in this regard. 



of the National Braille Authority 
followed by intensive negotiations 
led to the formation of BANA which 
now enjoys the sponsorship and 
financial support of eleven major 
organizations concerned with 
improvement of braille codes. In 
addition to the three original 
sponsors, these include the 
American Council of the Blind, 
the Association for Computing 
Machinery, the American Foundation 
for the Blind, the American 
Printing House for the Blind, the 
Canadian National Institute for 
the Blind, the Clovernook Home 
and School for the Blind, the 
Library of Congress and the 
National Federation of the Blind. 
BANA has now entered into a 
formal agreement with Florida 
State University which, with 
support from the U.S. Office of 
Education, is revising several 
technical braille codes. Both 
the federal grant and the agree- 
ment give authority for final 
adoption of these codes to BANA. 
As AAWB's representative on 
BANA's Board of Directors, I am 
privileged to serve as its 
chairman. I am especially 
pleased with this development 
because BANA demonstrates the 
feasibility of joint and co- 
operative action by a large 
number of independent organi- 
zations, which include service 
agencies and consumer groups, all 
working toward a common goal. 



Still another accomplishment 
has been the establishment of the 
Braille Authority of North America 
as a successor to the National 
Braille Authority, which since 
1952 had been sponsored by AAWB 
and AEVH and later joined by the 
National Braille Association. A 
year long study of the weakness 



Finally, I should mention that 
continuing efforts are being made 
to reconcile differences in 
opinion between AAWB and the 
National Accreditation Council 
regarding standards affecting 
orientation and mobility instru- 
ctors and rehabilitation teachers. 
In light of the excellent 



relationship which has existed 
between the two organizations, 
and the fact that they share 
common goals, I feel confident 
that their differences will be 
resolved constructively. 

With your permission I would 
like to close my remarks on a 
personal note. I entered the 
field of work for the blind some 
eighteen years ago, and even 
before I took up my official duties 
at the American Foundation for the 
Blind, I attended AAWB's National 
Convention which was held in 
Detroit in 1959. Since then, I 
have attended every convention 
except for the one held in Pitts- 
burgh in 1956 when I was on 
special assignment in West Africa 
for the American Foundation for 



Overseas Blind, the predecessor of 
my present agency Helen Keller 
International. Throughout all of 
these years, I have highly valued 
my association with AAWB for a 
number of reasons. Firstly, I 
recognize that our Association 
is an important vehicle for 
affecting the quality of life for 
blind persons. Secondly, partici- 
pation in its affairs has broadened 
my professional knowledge and 
deepened my understanding of the 
critical issues which our special- 
ized field of service has faced. 
Equally as important, is the 
opportunity our Association has 
afforded me for warm fellowship 
and for providing me with a sense 
of belonging to a great historic 
American movement. Thank you. 



MINUTES OF THE 1977 BIENNIAL CONVENTION 



The forty-seventh Biennial 
National Convention of the American 
Association of Workers for the 
Blind was held at the Portland 
Hilton Hotel in Portland, Oregon 
July 17-20, 1977. The attendance 
soared to over 700 participants. 
This included approximately 50 
individuals attending the AEVH 
regional meeting (held simul- 
taneously with AAWB) chaired by 
Dr. Roy Brothers. These indi- 
viduals also participated in the 
AAWB convention. This arrangement 



was very beneficial to all in- 
volved. The outstanding success 
of this busy convention was due 
to the efforts of the Host Com- 
mittee, the program committee, the 
national office and President 
Harold Roberts. 

The following listing of meetings 
workshops, speakers and interest 
groups are presented as they 
appeared in the program:

PAVILION ROOM 



while the entire convention was 
packed with excellent and infor- 
mative programs, convention 
participants will long remember 
two significant events. To start 
the convention Sir John Wilson 
Director of the Royal Commonwealth 
Society for the Blind (England) 
and President, International Agency 
for the Prevention of Blindness 
delivered one of the most bril- 
liant keynote speeches ever given 
at AAWB. This speech, because 
of its exceptional content will 
be published in its entirety in 
the BLINDNESS Annual. The second 
event was the Ambrose M. Shotwell 
memorial banquet. While there 
was an enormous amount of enthusi- 
astic support for Dr. MacFarland 
being selected to receive the 



award, his sudden death prevented 
the banquet from being the climax 
of this enthusiasm. However, the 
award was presented posthumously 
by one of Dr. MacFarland 's oldest 
and dearest friends, Lou Rives. 
Mr. Rives did an exceptional job 
describing all of the accomplish- 
ments made by Dr. MacFarland, 
however it will be Marjorie 
MacFarland 's acceptance speech 
that will long be remembered. 
Truly the spirit of Dr. MacFarland 
touched each person in attendance. 

President Roberts presided at 
the final meeting. The following 
resolutions were presented by the 
chairman of the resolutions 
committee, Stuart Grout: 



AAWB RESOLUTIONS 



WHEREAS, Robert Leigh Miller 
has spent the last forty-one years 
working on behalf of blind, deaf- 
blind and visually impaired people 
and, 

WHEREAS, through his efforts 
the first summer camp program for 
deaf-blind adults on the West 
Coast was begun in 1957 and, 

WHEREAS, he has made significant 
efforts to gain the support of the 
deaf community for deaf-blind 
people, recognizing their common 
bond of sign-language and, 

WHEREAS, his efforts as Produc- 
tion Manager of the Blind Craft 
Division of the San Francisco 
Light House for the Blind, were 
instrumental in the initial and 
continuing employment of many 



deaf, deaf-blind and blind workers 
and, 

WHEREAS, he has served on many 
advisory boards, committees, 
panels and other bodies of which the 
total effect has been the improve- 
ment of the situation of the 
disabled and, 

WHEREAS, he became the first 
director of deaf-blind services 
of the San Francisco Lighthouse 
for the Blind, 

THEREFORE, BE IT HERE RESOLVED 
that the American Association of 
Workers for the Blind heartily 
commend ROBERT LEIGH MILLER for 
his years of devoted service and 
congratulate him on an exemplary 
career, which is, we hope, far 
from being over. 



MOTION: On behalf of the 
Resolutions Committee I move that 
the Legislative Committee of this 
body be instructed to explore all 
means with appropriate Federal 
officials for expediting clear- 
ance procedures for reproducing 
copyrighted printed materials 
into braille, large print or any 
recorded form. 

MOTION: On behalf of the 
Resolutions Committee I move that 
the Legislative Committee of this 
body be instructed to inform the 
Post Master General and appro- 
priate officials of the United 
States Postal Service of the 
potential for discrimination 
against handicapped persons if 
the Postal Service implements 
its proposed plan to charge a 
higher first class rate for mail 
that is not hand addressed. And 
to take whatever other reasonable 
and appropriate action necessary 
to prevent such discrimination. 

Both of the above motions were 
unanimously passed at the business 
meeting of the American Association 
of Workers for the Blind on July 
20, 1977. 

A motion was made to support 
the inclusion of Orientation and 
Mobility under the medicare 
programs of the Social Security 
Act as amended. 

After considerable discussion 
the motion was amended to include 
rehabilitation teachers . The 
motion passed. 

A suggestion was made by John 
Maxson that board members at large 
should be elected by each region 
(i.e., one person per region). 
This suggestion was referred to 
the constitution and by-laws 
committee. 



WHEREAS, Sir John Wilson 
has honored this Association by 
his provocative and inspiring 
Keynote address at the opening 
General Session 

BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED, 
that the American Association of 
Workers for the Blind convey to 
Sir John Wilson, Director, Royal 
Commonwealth Society for the 
Blind, Sussex, England its deep 
gratitude, warm appreciation 
and sincere thanks for his out- 
standing address. 

The motion was made and 
passed to accept the resolution. 

President Roberts expressed his 
appreciation for all the support 
and cooperation during his term 
of office from the membership, 
various committees, board of 
directors. Executive committee 
and especially from Carleater 
Holmes and Bruce Blasch. At this 
point President Roberts turned 
the gavel over to the incoming 
President Mary K. Bauman. Mrs. 
Bauman then presented Mr. Roberts 
with a beautiful gavel mounted 
on an engraved base for the 
outstanding term of office Mr. 
Robert had completed as President 
of AAWB. 

Before adjourning the meeting 
President Bauman made a suggestion 
of establishing a Douglas C. 
MacFarland Memorial Fund to be 
used for encouraging professional 
activities. This recommendation 
met with an overwhelming consensus 
by the membership expressed in 
the form of a standing ovation. 
The guidelines for this memorial 
fund will be developed by a 
special ad hoc committee. Presi- 
dent Bauman then adjourned the

BRAILLE AUTHORITY OF NORTH AMERICA (BANA) 



At the end of 1976, the Braille 
Authority of North America came 
into being as a successor to the 
National Braille Authority. 

This development is a direct 
outgrowth of a year long study 
conducted by an Ad Hoc Committee 
established by the Braille Authori- 
ty and its National Advisory 
Committee. This study committee, 
chaired by Dr. M. Robert Barnett, 
was charged with the responsibility 
of developing a plan to strengthen 
the existing mechanism for im- 
proving braille technical codes 
in mathematics and science, music, 
computer notation and textbook 
formatting. 

The National Braille Authority 
had been established in 1952 under 
the sponsorship of the American 
Association of Workers for the 
Blind (AAWB) and the Association 
of Education of the Visually 
Handicapped (AEVH) and was later 
joined by the National Braille 
Association (NBA) . 

After carefully reviewing the 
report and recommendations of the 
Ad Hoc Committee, representatives 
of the three sponsoring organi- 
zations drew up the following 
resolution which subsequently 
was approved by their respective 
governing bodies. 



WHEREAS: The present sponsoring 
associations (AAWB, AEVH, NBA) 
wish to involve other organizations 
concerned with the production, 
distribution, and use of braille 
as participants in the support 



and direction of the Braille 
Authority of the United States, 
and 

WHEREAS: It is deemed necessary 
to enlarge the scope and effective- 
ness of the Braille Authority to 
insure increased progress in the 
future development of braille, 

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED: The 
present sponsors invite the fol- 
lowing organizations to join them 
as sponsors of the Braille Authority: 

American Foundation for the Blind 
Library of Congress (DBPH) 
American Printing House for the Blind 
American Council of the Blind 
Blinded Veterans Association 
National Federation of the Blind 
Clovernook Home and School for 

the Blind 
Canadian National Institute for 

the Blind 
Association for Computing Machinery 
Canadian Council of the Blind 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: That 
upon accepting sponsorship, each 
of the above listed organizations 
and the three current sponsors 
shall appoint a representative to 
the governing board hereinafter 
called the (English) Braille 
Authority of North America. 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: That 
each organization participating 
in the BANA shall be responsible 
for its organization, financial 
support, policy direction, and 
administration. It is further 
recommended that the BANA carry 
out its responsibilities through 
appropriate technical working 



14 



groups, whose chairmen shall con- 
stitute the technical review 
committee of the BANA. 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: The 
present Braille Authority, Advisory 
Council, the technical committees 



shall continue to serve until such 
time as the BANA is constituted. 

Following is a list of the 
organizations which have joined 
BANA together with the names of 
their representatives: 



American Association of Workers for the Blind . . Harold G. Roberts 

American Council of the Blind Floyd Cargill 

Association for Computing Machinery Robert A. J. Gildea 

Association for Education of the Visually 

Handicapped James E. Haralson 

American Foundation for the Blind Loyal E. Apple 

American Printing House for the Blind Ralph McCracken 

Canadian National Institute for the Blind E. G. Brown 

Clovernook Home and School for the Blind Martin F. Droege 

Library of Congress Richard Evensen 

National Braille Association Mrs. Irvin F. Richman 

National Federation of the Blind Dr. Kenneth Jernigan 



At an organizational meeting 
held in Chicago, Illinois, on 
December 2, 1976, the following 
officers were elected: chairmen - 
H. G. Roberts, Vice Chairman - 
Dr. Kenneth Jernigan, Treasurer - 
Martin F. Droege, and Secretary - 
Mrs. Irvin F. Richman. By-laws 
are being prepared and steps are 
being taken to incorporate the 
new organization. 

BANA's Board has held two addi- 
tional meetings during 1977; on 
April 4th and June 8th. A set of 
by-laws has been adopted officially 
and BANA and Florida State Uni- 
versity jointly have adopted a 
Memorandum of Understanding setting 
forth the basis for cooperation 
and collaboration with respect to 



the standardization of braille 
codes. The University has received 
a grant from the U.S. Office of 
Education to conduct a project 
entitled "Braille Codes Standardi- 
zation Project." Dr. Gideon R. 
Jones, Coordinator, Visual Disa- 
bilities, is the Project Director, 
and Miss Marjorie Hooper, former 
AAWB President, is the Major 
Investigator. The terms of the 
grant require BANA's approval of 
all proposed braille code changes. 



Respectively submitted, 

Harold G. Roberts, President 
AAWB

REPORT OF THE LEGISLATIVE COMMITTEE

As the Legislative Committee 
did not have a quorum, instead of 
having a formal meeting, the 
meeting turned into a question 
and answer period regarding legis- 
lation and pending legislation 
and Irv Schloss answered questions 
of the group. It should be noted 
that seventeen people were in 
attendance at this meeting. 

Dr. Schloss suggested to the 
group that they try to attend the 
General Legislative meeting at 
2:00 p.m. on Tuesday afternoon 
which was organized to answer 
questions regarding legislation 
and would have in attendance in 
addition to Irv Schloss, Barbara 



McGarry and John Duncan, both of 
the AFB Governmental Relations 
Office staff. This program con- 
cerned itself with implications 
for service to blind people and 
included SSI and SSDI represen- 
tatives from the Seattle regional 
office of SSA and the Portland 
District Office of SSA. In addi- 
tion, it included a discussion on 
Title XX and the HEW Labor Appro- 
priations Bill. 

Report by Irv Schloss 

The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 
is in the process of being extended 
but final action is not expected 
until after Labor Day. Represen- 
tative Brademas and Senator 
Randolph have introduced bills to 
extend the Act for five years 
while the Administration is 
recommending a three year exten- 
sion. There is little to do at 
the present time until we see how 
this difference comes out in the 
fall of the year. 

A summary of HR 8076, the 
Disability Insurance Amendments 
of 1977, introduced by Represen- 
tative James Burke were given to 
the group. A number of improve- 
ments have been introduced but 
how far they will go is the 
question. 

Senator Randolph introduced a 
bill in the Senate for the 
establishment of a national 
center for the handicapped but 
this bill has not been introduced 
into the House. The authorization 
language indicates an approval of 
up to ten million dollars for the 



16 



first year and additional sums 
after that not to exceed sixty 
million dollars in any one given 
year. The purpose of the bill 
is to provide for "model" programs 
in three areas: 



legislation — the discussion served 
to answer specific questions which 
were handled by Irv Schloss and 
Irv suggested that these questions 
might better be asked to the panel 
of experts at the Tuesday meeting. 



1. Improved Services. 

2. Improved Educational 

Facilities. 
•' 3. Improved Rehabilitation 
Facilities. 

The feeling was that this bill 
will result in duplication under 
existing legislation, but AFB is 
interested in the "potential" of 
the bill. 



A discussion ensued regarding 
funds for operation of regional 
distributing libraries to be given 
by the Library of Congress in 
Advance so that the regional 
libraries would know what funds 
would be available and could plan 
properly. No solution was found 
to this problem and the discussion 
was led by Russell Kirby. 



Independent Living Bills — All 
we can do is wait and see--There 
is no "trend" yet which would 
indicate which way this proposed 
legislation will go. The AFB is 
interested in rehabilitation for 
older blind persons and getting 
this into this legislation. 



Respectfully submitted, 



Harold Richterman 
Secretary, Legislative 
Committee, AAWB 



There was a general discussion 
by the group with Irv Schloss of 
various factors and various

REPORT OF THE HISTORY AND MEMORIAL COMMITTEE OF THE 
AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF WORKERS FOR THE BLIND 



C. Warren Bledsoe, Chairman 



Mr. President, Honored Guests 
of the Association, Fellow Members 
of the AAWB, Hewers and Haulers, 
Fetchers and Carriers, Inventors, 
Shining Examples, Agitators, 
Stormy Petrels, Philosophers, 
and Buffers: 

If you can think of any other 
category of workers for the blind, 
I will be happy to add it. 

This is the brief interlude in 
our convention when we open our 
sky lights and turn our eyes to 
heaven. For this occasion I have 
brought with me a venerable plaque. 
It was once on the bookcase of 
Mary Switzer's office in the 
Department of Health, Education, 
and Welfare, and it carries a 
rather daring sentiment which 
some of you may remember. Beside 
it stood another plaque which 
quoted Shakespeare's Prince Hal 
saying, "The first thing we do, 
let's kill all the lawyers." 
This plaque carries quite a dif- 
ferent sentiment. It is Sir Jacob 
Astley's prayer before the battle 
of Newbury during the English 
Civil War which was preliminary 
to our own Revolution. Sir 
Jacob's prayer says, "Lord, I 
shall be very busie this day. I 
may forget Thee, but doe Thou not 
forget me. " 

Knowing how much I cherished 
this sentiment, Mary sent it to 
me the day before she retired. 
Nothing ever became her more than 
her style of giving away earthly 



things which had spiritual sig- 
nificance. I want to profit by 
her example and pass this plaque 
and its message on to Bruce Blasch. 
It seems to me that the prayer 
which it contains is peculiarly 
fitting for those who are in the 
rehabilitation field. We are 
such inveterate and preoccupied 
action people, such doers, that 
we need a special dispensation to 
guide our doing and keep us from 
spinning our wheels. I think Mary 
would want the Executive Director 
to have this message where he 
could see it. I am sure wherever 
she is she will not forget to 
intercede for him and all of us to 
make this prayer effective. 

There is an old Norse proverb 
v;hich says, "Cattle die; kindred 
die; all things die; but the fair 
fame never of those who earned 
it." 

It is the business of this 
committee to make good this promise 
to the blessed company of faithful 
people who are workers for the 
blind. One of the most personal 
questions we could ask ourselves 
and others is, "What do you really 
think about death?" Many wise 
people believe we don't think 
about it enough. Justice Holmes 
believed his brushes with death 
in the Civil War were among the 
most valuable experiences of his 
life. "In our youth," he said, 
"we were touched with tongues of 
fire." And he thought this had 
been a great spur to achievement 



18 



all his life. Late in life he 
quoted Sophocles to say, "Death 
plucks me by the ears and says, 
'Live, I am coming.'" 

Another important question we 
can ask each other about death 
is, "What do you expect to get 
from it, austere, painful in the 
extreme as it may be, very 
fatiguing as we have seen it 
after an exhausting day?" 

If the most beautiful idylls in 
the world may be believed, we 
could hope for a soul finally 
taking leave of its body, letting 
go freely not only of the diffi- 
cult, the dull and the commonplace, 
but also giving up everything 
else of the here and now to slip 
over the border into a new 
dimension of existence, of 
interests, surprises, perhaps 
continuations, but above all 
releases from outgrown things. 
But whatever heaven is, I think 
most of us hope it will not 
release us from responsibilities, 
merely from our hampering traits, 
giving us a new chance at a new 
kind of love and beauty. 

This year more than ever our 
feelings are torn by two strong 
contrasting kinds of death — that 
of the venerable who, according 
to John Donne, "whisper to their 
souls to go," and those who have 
been taken from us, it seems, long 
before their time. Leigh Johnstone 
and Joseph Clunk were the former. 
Douglas MacFarland and Joseph 
Kohn were the latter. 

I am going to read the names of 
all members who have died who 
have been reported since the last 
convention. Since time does not 
permit me to give full biographies 
on this occasion, I have selected 



one of our heroes to celebrate in 
detail because of the far-reaching 
effects of his undoubted devotion. 

Joseph Clunk, who died September 
30th, 1975, was the father of 
what is now the Office for the 
Blind and Visually Handicapped in 
the Department of Health, Edu- 
cation, and Welfare. The office 
had its beginnings in 1937 as a 
unit called "Services for the 
Blind" in the Office of Education, 
then under the Department of the 
Interior. The unit has had other 
administrative lodgings since, 
but in all of them it has had an 
identifiable personality, based 
on certain principles stemming 
from Joseph F. Clunk, its first 
chief. 

Clunk was a redoubtable champion 
of blind people who was himself 
without sight. He came to the 
Federal government as an authority 
on placement of blind people out- 
side sheltered shops in the general 
labor market. He was a past 
master at persuading industrial- 
ists and their foremen to let him 
study their operations, choose 
what he thought could be done 
without sight and demonstrate he 
was right by doing the job him- 
self. He had made an impressive 
success of this practice first in 
Ohio and later in Canada. 

When in 1936 the Randolph- 
Sheppard Law was enacted to provide 
licenses for blind people to 
operate vending stands in Federal 
buildings, and to survey job 
opportunities for them on a 
national level. Clunk was sought 
out in Canada and persuaded to 
head the program. He began with 
a small staff living on the 
budgetary fortunes and good graces 
of the Commissioner of Education 



19 



and the Chief of his Vocational 
Rehabilitation Division. That 
division had been in existence 
since the passage of the Smith- 
Fess Act
