In 1853, the deaf community in Vermont held a meeting and decided to establish an organization. A year later, the group drafted a constitution and named the organization the New England Gallaudet Association of the Deaf, the NEGAD. The purpose of the organization was to promote the intellectual growth among the deaf community. Eventually, other states established their own state associations, which prompted the eventual establishment of the National Association of the Deaf, the NAD. Part of the “Deaf History That” series.
