George William Veditz was a former president of National Association of the Deaf of the United States and was one of the first to film American Sign Language.


  • I would love to view a full footage of Veditz’s talk.

    It is something I will never get tired of viewing.

    It would be great if you can interview Dr. Carol Padden who did an academic work translating George Veditz.

    In addition, it will be important for people to know why did Veditz made this film. A background information on Veditz’s life should be shared because it is astounding such as his life as a chess player, raise winning chickens, editor, scholar, deaf advocate, and NAD president.
