Deaf in New South Wales: A Community History

Deaf in New South Wales: A Community History

This website has been created to help celebrate the Centenary of the Deaf Society of New South Wales in 2013 – but it’s about much more. The information here explores the experiences of deaf people in New South Wales since the late 18th Century.

If you click on the tabs above, you will find information about deaf people in NSW in different time periods; you can read about the history of the Deaf Society itself; you will see descriptions of some of the many other organisations that have developed by or for deaf people; you will find short biographies of 100 significant people in our history; and you can see where to go for further information and research.
