Edited by Jane Butler, Laura-Jean Gilbert. From the Foreword- "The heritage was waiting to be recorded. For all its richness, the material on deaf people and deafness had not been tapped. The world of deafness has had its trail-blazers, innovators, statesmen, philosophers, writers, artists, politicians, and reformers. Throughout the years in our country, there have been events of import, deeds of courage, decisions of lasting influence, strokes of brilliance, works of high quality, and moments of glory- all created by deaf people. The need was to capture between the covers of a book as many of them as possible."
