Rich in heritage and always striving to meet the challenges of the 21st Century, The Indiana School for the Deaf has developed into one of the leading deaf schools in the nation. Its success is captured in the publications that have been digitized through funding by the Indianapolis Foundation Library Fund. 204 volumes with 18,000 pages of publications include school newsletters, senior numbers and yearbooks.
The Silent Hoosier (1887-1934) Hooserian (1923) The Hoosier (1935-1996) Orange and Black (1921-1938) Yearbooks (1938-1982)
This collection has the potential to impact students from universities and schools, parents and individuals searching for their genealogical heritage, researchers and educators seeking information for professional papers. Over the years, the paper collection has gained increased interest from people in Indiana and from other states sending e-mail requests for genealogical information and personal research. Several researchers have visited the school to meet their research needs. By providing online access, researchers can gather information without coming to the school. ISD will curate the collection via e-mail.
