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,
