The deaf community recognizes Edmund Booth as a venerated leader. He grew up attending the American School for the Deaf under the tutelage of Laurent Clerc. In 1849, he decided to rush out to the gold fields of California. After returning from California, he bought the newspaper “The Anamosa Eureka” and wrote articles denouncing slavery. He was also the first editor in the state of Iowa declaring his support for the right of women to vote. When the NAD was founded in 1880, he was the first chair of the convention. Part of the “Deaf History That” series.
