Histories of American Schools for the Deaf, 1817-1893, Vol. 3 of 3 free pdf Excerpt from Histories of American Schools for the Deaf, 1817-1893, Vol. 3 of 3 The Whipple Home School was founded by Jonathan and Zerah Whipple about twenty years ago. Jonathan Whipple had a deaf son, Enoch, who is still living, at the age of sixty-eight years. Jonathan observed that Enoch watched his mouth very closely while he was talking, and that if Enoch did this he understood him. He also found that by having Enoch watch his mouth while he pronounced different words the boy would speak distinctly, when otherwise he failed. Jonathan Whipple was a man of indomitable will and perseverance and he determined to teach his son to speak and read the lips well. This he succeeded in doing, so that now there is certainly no better living example of the value of this method of teaching the deaf than Enoch Whipple. He reads the lips perfectly, speaks sonorously and distinctly, and is a man of strict integrity and broad cultivation. Jonathan Whipple at all times advocated this method of teaching the deaf, but no real plans for a school materialized until his grandson, Zerah Whipple, was about twenty years old. Zerah was a thoughtful young man and a good student. He became greatly interested in his grandfather's methods and determined to devote his life to the instruction of the deaf by the oral method. This he did conscientiously and well. He invented the Whipple's Natural Alphabet, which is still of great assistance to the teachers in their work. The School was quite extensively advertised, and it grew in numbers until a dozen or so pupils from all parts of the United States, and from little children to grown men and women, were under his instruction. In a few years Zerah purchased from the heirs of one of Mystic's deceased wealthy citizens his former summer residence and moved his little School there. This was an admirable situation for the School, and its location has not since been changed. The house is little over a mile from the village of Mystic, healthfully built and situated on a high hill, commanding a beautiful view of the village, river, and sound. One can judge of the healthfulness of the location of the School from the remarks of one of the teachers.
