Summary or Abstract : This dissertation explores Dr. Samuel Gridley Howe's education of Laura Bridgman, the first deaf and blind person ever to be taught language. In the mid-19th century, this young girl became one of the most famous women in the world, captivating the imagination of a vast public. While the press hailed her as proof of the miraculous power of education, some of the era's most important philosophers, scientists, educators and theologians debated the true meaning of Dr. Howe's "experiment." Howe argued that her progress proved his own liberal, Unitarian view of human nature. Boston's powerful orthodox community disagreed, denouncing him as a case of "the blind leading the blind.".
