    1.  See Harlan Lane, When the mind hears: A history of the deaf (Random House, 1984) for a deaf history which, while written by a hearing person, has figured in the recent movement for deaf civil rights (Sacks, 1998: 164).  See also Carlos Sanches, La increible y triste historia de la sordera (Caracas: CEPROSORD, 1990).  For a history written by a deaf historian, see Jack Gannon, Deaf heritage: A narrative history of deaf America (National Association of the Deaf, 1981).  Gallaudet University, Washington, D.C., founded in 1864, is the major repository of documents relative to deaf history in the United States, as is INES (Instituto Nacional de Educação de Surdos), Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, founded in 1857.
