Historical Sketch

The Conference of Executives of American Schools for the Deaf was founded in 1868 at Gallaudet University. At that time its name was the Conference of Superintendents and Principals of the American Schools for the Deaf until it changed the name to the Conference of Executives of American Schools for the Deaf in 1931. It is the second oldest professional organization for educators of the deaf in the United States after the Convention of American Instructors of the Deaf which was founded in 1850.
The purposes of the conference are to promote the management and operation of schools for the deaf; to promote the welfare of the deaf; and to promote the professional growth of teachers of the deaf by establishing and maintaining standards for teachers through certification procedures and approval of teacher training centers.
The conference holds its general meetings every two years for exchange information among the superintendents and principals in relating the education of the deaf.

Scope and Content

The Conference of Executives of American Schools for the Deaf consists of letters, articles, financial reports, constitution and by-laws, program books, minutes, certificates, newsletters, memorandums and brochures.
The collection, which consists of approximately 15,300 pages, dates from 1941 to 1986. The bulk of the collection consists of minutes of the meetings, proceedings and program books of the conference. There is correspondence on the Presidents of the Conference written between 1966 and 1986.
The largest subject in the collection is focused on the education of the deaf. There are some interesting subjects on mainstreaming on the education of deaf children.
