The founding of the American School for the Deaf represented a shared commitment on the part of citizens, families, teachers, and deaf people themselves. It followed several attempts to found other schools, one of which ultimately succeeded in New York (Fanwood), and another that failed in Virginia (Braidwood's Institution). Why one school fails while another succeeds, making an indelible mark on our history, is a question worth pondering. In the case of ASD, one might say that there was a conjunction of the right people making the best choices.
