Summary In this film four women who made significant contributions to the education of the deaf are discussed: Alice Cogswell, Julia Brace, Eliza Boardman Clerc, and Sophia Fowler Gallaudet. Alice Cogswell was the deaf daughter of Mason Cogswell, and the source of the motivation of this pioneer educator; Julia Brace was the first educated deaf-blind person in America; Eliza Boardman, a student at the American Asylum, married Laurent Clerc, in what was the first deaf marriage in America; Sophia Fowler was the fourteenth student to enter the school and eventually married Thomas Gallaudet. Their fourth son became president of the National Deaf-Mute College in Washington, D.C.
