"It is sometimes both interesting and instructive to trace the history even of a humble individual from his birth to his death to discover the causes which influenced his conduct, the circumstances which tended to form his character, the various incidences and events which shaped his destiny under the direction of an all wise, though often a mysterious Providence."
American Annals of the Deaf and Dumb, OCTOBER, 1847, Vol. 1, No. 1 , pp. 7-14

Founded in 2022, the Société Laurent Clerc was created to celebrate the life and contributions of this important educator of the Deaf in the United States. Modeled after our French counterparts, The Association Laurent Clerc, our society proposes to focus more attention on Laurent Clerc with the purpose of securing him a United States Commemorative Postal Stamp. Come join the journey with us!
