Helen Keller was born in Alabama in 1880 to a wealthy and privileged family. She was born with fully functioning sight and vision, but became ill aged 19 months with what was then known as “brain fever”, which was probably meningitis or scarlet fever. This left her blind and deaf. From then on, she was very limited in her communication with her immediate family, apart from a few essential words through a special form of sign language. By the age of six or seven, she had found ways to cope with her disabilities. For example, she could tell the sex or age group of a person through the strength and speed of the vibrations their footsteps made, as her sense of touch and feeling became more and more fine tuned.

No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.
Scottish American industrialist, Andrew Carnegie, is famous for being one of the richest people in history, at one point surpassing John D Rockefeller as the richest American in the world. He led the expansion of America’s steel industry in the late 19th century, and devoted the last 18 years of his life to philanthropy, during which time he founded many charitable organisations. Carnegie’s career began as a telegrapher. By the 1860s, he had made investments in railroads, trains, and the oil industry, eventually accumulating more wealth as a bond salesman, which funded American enterprise in Europe. After building his steel company, he sold it in 1901 for $480 million, making him the richest American. His large scale philanthropic endeavours in later life had an emphasis on local libraries, education, science research and world peace. From his fortune, he built Carnegie Hall, Peace Palace, and more.
