Amy Cohen Efron shares her thoughts and suggestions that a full-figured sculpture of George Veditz is sorely needed!
Also, see how Amy discovered that there were other well-known Deaf people been memorialized by their sculpture(s).
There were only three Deaf people been memorialized with their sculptures.
1. Alice Cogswell (two full-figured sculptures): One is in Hartford, Connecticut, and the other one is with Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet at Gallaudet University.
2. Laurent Clerc (three busts): One is at American School for the Deaf, Clerc Museum at LaBalme les Grottes in France, and at the front of Fowler Hall at Gallaudet University.
3. Andrew Foster (a bust): Located at Gallaudet University’s Foster Auditorium.
And… one full-figured sculpture of Deaf-Blind person, Helen Keller which will be placed at United States Capitol soon.
