Sign Language Studies, v1 n1 p17-44 Fall 2000
The Deaf world in the United States has major roots in a triangle of New England Deaf communities that flourished in the early nineteenth century. Hypothesizes that the social fabric of these communities differed as a reflection of language and marriage practices that were underpinned. To evaluate the hypothesis, local records and newspapers, genealogies, and other publications are used to illuminate the Henniker Deaf community in New Hampshire. (Author/VWL)
