Hello Modernist Colleagues,
Might anyone know whether modernists writers--especially Virginia 
Woolf--knew about the WWI residential facility in Regent's Park for 
blind soldiers,  or had any involvement with St. Dunstan's Blinded 
Soldiers and Sailors Care Committee?    (The facility was Otto Kahn's 
private residence, lent for the duration of the Great War for the care 
of blind soldiers.)
Any indication that Woolf knew of St. Dunstan's?
Thanks very much for any info,
Laura
