CALL FOR PAPERS
Hello. I am a blind historian working on a project with two other historians about “Ageism, Ableism, and Advocacy in the History Profession.” I am researching contemporary blind historians’ experiences, both good and bad, working in the history professions; museums, working as authors, public history, etc. Please respond if you would like to share your experiences with me. Best wishes.

H-Dis folks-- I'm researching a guy who was enrolled at the University of Florida in the late 1930s and he held a Vocational Rehabilitation Scholarship. I'm guessing this is one of the early rehabilitation scholarships for people with disabilities, out of the 1920 Smith-Fess Act or Social Security.
Does anyone know anything else about these scholarships-- how prevalent they were, how designated and funded etc.?
Would I look in Federal or State records?
Miami University, Ohio
Introduction: About once a month (supply allowing), we post a listing of recently published historical articles about disability (somewhat broadly defined).
