Gallaudet University celebrates a Lincoln-related milestone

This month marks 150 years since Lincoln signed into law a bill authorizing the  Columbia Institution for the Instruction of the Deaf and Dumb and the Blind to award college-level degrees.  The institution, located in the District of Columbia, was the forerunner of today’s Gallaudet University.  The college is marking the anniversary with a special history exhibit.
