 Product Description

The First Teacher of the Deaf in the Philippines

Delight Rice the hearing daughter of deaf parents (CODA) was a pioneering teacher of deaf-blind pupils at the Wisconsin and Ohio Schools for the Deaf during the early 1900s. In 1907 the U.S. government sent her to establish a deaf education system in the Philippines which was occupied by American military forces during the Spanish-American War. Initially unable to find any deaf children in Manila and surrounding provinces she and American constabularies ventured into the interior mountains heavily populated by wild hostile headhunting tribes in search of deaf children. They rode U.S. Army wagons and on burros for more than 1 000 miles on their successful mission. [Ronald M. Hirano; (2014) 167 pages; soft cover]
