Please join the library and the Missouri State Museum to learn about some of Missouri’s most significant trailblazers in this monthly series of programs in honor of Missouri's bicentennial. What is a trailblazer, you might ask? A trailblazer is someone who has impacted our culture through major events, leadership, innovation and more! Today's program will highlight Hallowell Davis and the science of hearing, presented by
John Peterson and Emily Morrison from the Missouri Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.
Hallowell Davis was a pioneer in the field of audiology, the branch of science that deals with hearing. He even invented the term! Mr. Davis became the director of research at the Central Institute for the Deaf in St. Louis, and taught in the medical school at Washington University. You'll learn about his time as the world’s leading authority in the science of hearing and his numerous contributions to the field.
