At the third convention of the National Association of the Deaf in 1889, then-President Hodgson cited the need for statistical analysis about the Deaf to either refute or confirm Alexander Graham Bell’s theory that intermarriage among the Deaf led to a greater chance for a couple to have Deaf children.

Dr. Edward Allen Fay, an editor of the American Annals of the Deaf produced a 528-page report titled “Marriages of the Deaf.”

Below are the links to Fay’s Indexes.
