Historical Sketch

The Convention of American Instructors of the Deaf (CAID) was founded in 1850 and incorporated in 1897 by an Act of the United States Congress.

The Convention of American Instructors of the Deaf consists of teachers, administrators, educational interpreters, residential personnel, and other concerned professionals involved in the education of the deaf. Its purpose is to promote professional development and communication among professionals who work with the deaf.

Every two years conferences are held featuring short courses, workshops, exhibits,
and presentations for the exchange of information among educators.

Scope and Content

The collection consists of 1 document box-approximately 0.5 linear feet and 850 pages-containing material dating from 1874 to 1916. Documents within the collection include the CAID constitution and amendments, correspondence, lists of members of the Convention of the American Institute of the Deaf and Dumb held at Belleville, Ontario, on July 15-20, 1874, minutes from meetings of the executive committee from 1895 to 1920, and reports.

The majority and strongest portion of the collection is correspondence. A book containing the minutes of the Convention from 1895 to 1920 is also a strong component.
