TIDBITS about George Veditz

Padden, Kami Hye-Mee.  (2000-2001, Winter).  Mary Manning Ijams.  The Maryland Bulletin, 122 (2), 16-17.  http://www.msd.edu/mdb/v121i2_0001_win.pdf  Tidbit about the first Deaf student/first Deaf teacher at MSD (Mary “Mollie” Ijams) and George W. Veditz.

A story about Mary (Mollie ) Ijams first student and first Deaf teacher at MSD:
“In 1875, a new fourteen year old boy was put in Mollie’s class of beginners.She thought the boy was too bright to be in her class so she told Mr. Ely (the supt) to put him in a higher class. Mr. Ely agreed to do so. Mollie was right after all because that particular boy received the highest grades upon graduation. He then went to Gallaudet University and returned to MSD as the school’s first full-time vocational teacher. His name was George W. Veditz.” (p.17)
