The Maryland Workshop for the Blind is a State Institution, incor-
porated in 1908 (An. Code 1939, Art. 30, sec. 8). Control is vested
in a Board of five Trustees, three of whom are appointed by the Gov-
ernor, with Senate approval, and two are elected by the Board of
Directors of the Maryland School for the Blind.

The Workshop is conducted for the training and employment of
all adult blind citizens of Maryland. It operates through depart-
ments.Industrial, which manufactures medical items, textile ma-
terials, brooms, mops and also teaches chair caning; Home Service,
which provides training for the blind in their homes and aids them
in their personal adjustment to blindness; and the Vending Stand
Department which licenses and establishes vending stands in many
of the public buildings of the State.

In addition to these services, the Workshop is a distributing agent
for the U. S. Government owned talking book machines and provides
white canes, without charge, to blind persons.
