THE SECOND EDITION
Great Deaf Americans
By Matthew S. Moore
and Robert F. Panara

Paperback, 512 pages

The second edition is out of print. The third edition is now in progress—newly revised, expanded, and updated, and will include an index. Approximately 70 chapters comprising approximately 77 brief biographical profiles of eminent deaf people, past and contemporary, in a variety of fields, from aviation to teaching, representing the diversity of deaf identities in America, from culturally-Deaf to oral, from born-deaf to late-deafened. Teachers, lawyers, advocates, artists, athletes, scholars, journalists, scientists, administrators, leaders, travelers, communications pioneers, an Art Deco architect, an innovative shoestring-budget ASL filmmaker, one of the world's finest botanical artists, and the “World’s Greatest Lifeguard” are here. Each chapter is illustrated with at least one portrait; mostly photographs. Includes a detailed bibliography.
