This guide is intended to be a catchall for frequently-asked questions about specific historical figures or events of particular interest to deaf history.

This includes questions relating to the founding family of Gallaudet University, accounts of deaf Holocaust survivors, and Nobel Prize winners with hearing loss, among other things.

This is not intended to be a comprehensive overview, only a way for those with questions that often arise to find an answer quickly. For all others, of course, we encourage that you search around our site or contact us.
