Short Biography

Meredith Peruzzi joined the Gallaudet University Museum team in June of 2013 as a chief exhibition writer and researcher.  On November 25, 2013, Peruzzi became the Curator of the Gallaudet at 150 and Beyond Exhibition. 

Since January of 2014, she has been the Manager of the Gallaudet University Museum, following the retirement of founder and Director Emerita Dr. Jane Norman.

Meredith received a B.A. in Deaf Studies with a minor in History from Gallaudet University.  Her University Honors project was a coffee-table style book entitled Gallaudet at 150: Chapter One, which focused on the first years of campus history, from 1857 to 1880.  

A native of the Washington DC area, her first connection with the museum world was in 1991, as a volunteer for the now-defunct Baltimore City Life Museums. After her graduation from Gallaudet, she spent one year in Tokyo teaching American Sign Language for the Japanese ASL Signers Society.
