Students, New Mexico School for the Deaf, 1893

Students, New Mexico School for the Deaf, 1893

Courtesy of the Smithsonian online exhibition “EveryBody: An Artifact History of Disability in America.”
One of only three photos I have been able to find of any of the 6 institutions once inhabited by New Mexicans with disabilities. Do you have any photos of Fort Stanton, Carrie Tingley Hospital in Truth or Consequences, Los Lunas Hospital and Training School, The School for the Deaf, The New Mexico School for the Blind in Alamogordo, or the institution that was in Roswell whose name we can’t locate. Let us know! You can email us, post on our Facebook page, or tweet to #nmdisabilitystory
