The Story of Lip-Reading; Its Genesis and Development.
DeLand, Fred; Montague, Harriet Andrews
The historical developments of the use of lipreading from 1500 A.D. to 1931 are described. Education of the deaf is traced from its beginnings in Spain to England, Belgium, Holland, and France with the use of quotations from literature and old documents. The lives and works of Charles Michel de l'Epee and Samuel Heinicke, the beginning of organized work for the deaf and of the oral method in America, the first teachers of lipreading to adults, the first speechreading conference, the works of Martha E. Bruhn, Edward B. Nitchie, Cora Elsie, Rose Kinsie, and the Jena method are discussed. A consideration of the development of organizations to help the hearing-impaired is followed by a discussion of lipreading for the hard-of-hearing child. (GD)
