The OCLC Research WorldCat Identities project is ending. The work provided valuable insight into how to mine bibliographic data for insight into the People and Organizations that create and serve as subjects library materials. The findings demonstrated the power of data mining over the world’s largest set of bibliographic metadata and highlighted the value of collaborative collective cataloging. The WorldCat Identities data has positively impacted OCLC’s work to build the WorldCat Entities application and the 150 million Person and Work descriptions accessible through it. This work will continue to build our entity ecosystem to support the future knowledge work of librarians.

The WorldCat Identities web application will be retired and shut down in the coming months and the data is no longer being updated. The most recent version of the data is from July of 2022. As OCLC continues to build out the WorldCat Entities ecosystem, please use it as a source for persistent Person identifiers.

Teacher: Anne Sullivan Macy; a tribute by the foster-child of her mind by Helen Keller( Book )

35 editions published between 1955 and 1985 in English and held by 1,525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Helen Keller, blind, deaf, and mute, was six years old, a young woman named Anne Sullivan entered her life. The daughter of Irish immigrants, Miss Sullivan was poor, ill, and nearly blind herself. She was inexperienced as a teacher. Yet she had the relentless vitality that was to force her pupil's unwilling mind from the depths of unconsciousness. To attempt to reach the intelligence of a young girl who fought the dark, silent world about her with temper tantrums and stubbornness--this was no project for an inexperienced young woman. But Anne Sullivan refused to admit defeat. When Helen was nine Miss Sullivan's untiring efforts were rewarded; her pupil was able to speak the words "I am not dumb now." It was one of the most dramatic achievements in the history of teaching. The introduction to this book outlines briefly the lives of these two vital women--their early life together as teacher and pupil, Helen's years at Radcliffe, the vaudeville tours and Hollywood movie, and their long association with the American Foundation for the Blind--to provide a background for this remarkable, inspiring biography by Helen Keller of her great teacher."--Jacket
My religion by Helen Keller( Book )

70 editions published between 1927 and 2019 in 9 languages and held by 971 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Helen Keller had absolutely no hearing or eyesight from the age of two, but became one of the most inspiring and well known people to have ever lived. For a number of years she functioned, in her words, simply as "an unconscious clod of earth." Then quite suddenly, she experienced the impact of "another mind" within her own. Despite not knowing where it came from or how it got there, she awoke to a new awareness of being able to talk and listen with her hands. She learned to read and write, wrote at least ten books, and attended college. Her religion developed from living deeply within her spiritual self, cut off from normal sensation, and spending her life on a spiritual plane. She incorporated her own experiences with the teachings of Emanuel Swedenborg, a mystic born in 1688, and the Swedenborgian Church. Swedenborg, like Keller, had experienced other realms of spirit and transmitted deeper teachings that Helen saw with great clarity. She wrote this book after receiving many requests for her to describe her religious beliefs
