George Ernst Detmold (1917-2005)

George E. Detmold (2/18/19178/12/2005), a hearing scholar-administrator, was appointed Dean of Gallaudet College in 1952, and proceeded to carry out some major reforms, one of which was bringing on board his best friend from Cornell, William C. Stokoe, as English professor. (An appointment that would have profound repercussions for the Deaf and linguistic communities.) Detmold left Gally after President Elstad retired. He spent his last years in St. Augustine, Florida, and is buried in Arlington National Cemetery. I'd like to connect with his family and obtain photos and additional information on him and his distinguished career.
