Finding Deaf Herstory and History: Resources for the Classroom

A few years ago, the great-great-granddaughter of the Deaf pioneer and National Association of the Deaf (NAD) supporter, Edmund Booth, told me a story about her great-niece learning about the California Gold Rush in her social studies class. The young girl excitedly shared the fact that she was a descendant of a "Forty-Niner," but her classmates and her teacher did not believe her. She called her dad and asked him to bring the book Edmund Booth, Deaf Pioneer when he picked her up that day. During a subsequent "show-and-tell" activity, she was thrilled to use the book to explain about her proud heritage that included Edmund Booth and his wife Mary Ann Walworth Booth, both Deaf.
