Benjamin Marshall Schowe, Sr., Papers
The digital collection focuses on recruiting, promotion, insurance, and discrimination related to Deaf people and employment from 1920 through 1975. While Schowe was a labor economist for Firestone, he corresponded with federal authorities about hiring Deaf employees during the New Deal and World War II. He was also responsible for hiring Deaf people to work at Firestone and he also helped conduct surveys of Deaf workers that were published and distributed to federal agencies during this era.
