Oral Teaching of the Death and Dumb

The Times (17 july 1912, p. 10)

Sir A. Conan Doyle moved the adoption of the report at the annual meeting of the Association for the Oral Instruction of the Deaf and Dumb at the Carlton Rooms, Baker-street, yesterday. He said that there were now in England and Wales 50 schools giving oral education to deaf and dumb people and fulfilling the requirements of the Board of Education. Through the labours of the association all deaf and dumb children could now be educated, and instead of being a burden to the community could become self-respecting citizens, able in many cases to earn their own living. Last year at least half the teaching appointments had to be given to untrained persons, and with a little more aid the association could realize its ambition of sending out 15 to 20 trained teachers each year. Such an admirable week appeared to him one which should be undertaken by the State. The prizes were distributed by Mrs. Hornung, sister of Sir Conan Doyle.
