Philippa Campsie: Changing History

The past doesn’t change. But history changes all the time because of new new findings and different interpretations. Canadian historian Phillipa Campsie took a deep dive into Charles Barbier, the man thought to have inspired Louis Braille. At a museum in Paris, she asked the director about  him, and the director brought Ms. Campsie an archival box of unread documents. The results of her research ended up transforming the way our Musueum interpets the history of blindness.
