dc.description.abstractEarly In December of 1952, Epsilon Pi Tau, the Industrial Arts National Honorary Professional Fraternity, made a field trip to Hines-Vaughan Veteran Hospital at Hines, Illinois, to study the rehabilitation of disabled veterans through manual and occupational therapy. I was a member of this group. During the course of the afternoon we visited the blind center, and here I acquired the desire to work in such a rehabilitation hospital* The modern concept of rehabilitation began in 1907 with Pasteur, who established a school in Belgium for the vocational training of individuals too handicapped to be admitted to existing apprenticeships. From the beginning the improvement of individual earning capacity has been most important. The Western European countries that adopted this humane approach to treatment of the handicapped referred to it as "re-education", a term which they still use.en_US
