George M. McClure (9/18/1861—9/18/1966) lived to the age of exactly 105 years, but aside from his impressive longevity, had a distinguished career as a teacher, administrator, leader, and editor. He studied at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky, and began teaching at Kentucky School for the Deaf in 1880, the year that the NAD was founded—and his association with KSD spanned 8 decades. He was longtime editor of the Kentucky Standard—KSD's school-published Deaf community periodical. McClure's wife, Carrie Jasper, also Deaf, likewise had a long, distinguished teaching career. Their son William D. and grandson William J. continued the family tradition of education of the deaf. One or both taught at Indiana School for the Deaf. I'd like to find and contact the family.
