This card just caught my eye, as I'm also researching a teacher of the deaf and blind. How fortunate to have a record from the Gallaudet school! I am hoping there is something akin to that at the place where my ancestor attended school.

Hi Jacqi, It was the Flint (Michigan School For The Deaf) that originally caught my attention. As a child we often drove past the school and, if I remember correctly, one of our neighbors taught there. Hope you find the resources you need!
