Summary This film tells the story of Abbe Roch-Ambroise Sicard, the teacher of Jean Massieu. As the successor to the Abbe de l'Epee, Sicard, along with Massieu, presented a petition to the French National Assembly and obtained a permanent home for the school--Saint-Jacques. Sicard eagerly continued the tradition of public demonstrations and exhibits started by the Abbe de l'Epee. In 1815 Sicard undertook a demonstration tour to London with Massieu, Clerc, and another students. According to Clerc "thus it was that I first came to meet Rev. Thomas Gallaudet."
