In this hour of TALK OF THE NATION, we'll discuss deaf culture, its history, traditions, its challenges and its controversies. Of course, radio is by definition a medium for the ear. So we
will use various technologies to welcome an audience normally unavailable to us. Some of those methods are old. The voices of our guests that you'll hear today are those of their interpreters and some are much newer. Live captioning of this hour's broadcast will stream live on a Web site, www.captionreporters.com. You can pass that address along to any deaf or hard of hearing people you know who would be interested. Again, the Web site is www.captionreporters.com.
Hi! Welcome to Deaf Culture Online. I'm Mark Drolsbaugh and I'm excited to bring you one of the most original, informative, and entertaining deafness-related websites you'll ever find.
This website was created to bring you as many perspectives on the deaf and hard of hearing experience as possible. While the primary focus of this website is to promote awareness of Deaf culture, it will be all-inclusive and cover a wide range of topics such as:
This site is the result of several years of gathering materials about Deaf people's experiences related to World War II for Deaf Studies courses taught at NTID/RIT.
The site focuses on three spheres of the world involved in this conflict. Deaf North Americans, Deaf Europeans, and Deaf Asians people's lives are examined before, during and after the war. It also features videotape clips and full testimonies, articles, scripts, artwork, books and links to other related sites.
This page commemorates deaf people whose accomplishments are part of our history. (Living achievers are profiled on the “Deaf People in Action” page.) We wish to honor achievers and innovators who contributed to the Deaf community and also enhanced American culture and society as a whole. This is a sampling of some of those achievers, not a comprehensive gallery. Tiles are arranged randomly. Each tile, when clicked, opens a capsule biography of that person. Students can use these capsule biographies to assist in their research. (In-depth biographies are available for $5.00 each.) We hope that you enjoy browsing through this sampling. New profiles will be added from time to time.
Gallaudet University Library's mission is to serve students, faculty, staff, and other researchers from around the world by providing access to research materials and the information literacy skills students will need throughout their lives.

The Historic Deaf School Site: The seven acres that the Topiary Park sits on were once the site of the Ohio School for the Deaf. First established in 1829, the school grew to include several buildings before relocating to Columbus’s north side in 1953. Prior to the school’s move, the area surrounding it had grown into a downtown residential neighborhood. When the school moved the neighborhood declined and did not see a renaissance until the mid 1970s. With the help of several local organizations the area was designated a historic district in 1982.
Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet (December 10, 1787 – September 10, 1851) was an acclaimed American pioneer in the education of the deaf. He founded and served as principal of the first institution for the education of the deaf in the United States. Opened in 1817, it is now known as the American School for the Deaf. Gallaudet was also instrumental in the creation of American Sign Language, which was later recognized as a true language, not just a code representing English words.
Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet was born December 10th in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the year of 1787 and raised in Hartford, Connecticut, birthplace of his maternal grandparents (www.famousamericans.net/thomashopkinsgallaudet/). His parents, being of Huguenot origin and thoroughly grounded in the Protestant religion, had a profound effect in young Gallaudet’s desire to become an ordained minister. Thomas Gallaudet, abounding in intellectual abilities, excelled in many educational endeavors. At the tender age of fourteen (14) years, Gallaudet entered Yale University. He graduated first in his class in 1805 .
Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet (1787-1851) was a trained minister whose future changed when he met Alice Cogswell, a young deaf mute girl. In 1817, Gallaudet opened the Connecticut Asylum for the Education and Instruction of Deaf and Dumb Persons in Hartford, Connecticut; it was the first U.S. deaf school. He had observed European educational methods and recruited a teacher of the deaf, Laurent Clerc, whose work helped develop American Sign Language (ASL).
Reverend Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet, LL.D., (December 10, 1787 – September 10, 1851) was a renowned American pioneer in the education of the deaf. Along withLaurent Clerc and Mason Cogswell, he co-founded the first institution for the education of the deaf in North America, and he became its first principal. When opened on April 15, 1817, it was called the "Connecticut Asylum (at Hartford) for the Education and Instruction of Deaf and Dumb Persons," but it is now known as the American School for the Deaf.
