Three films that depict early speech and hearing treatments and technologies have been preserved from 16mm to DVD with support from a $5,300 National Film Preservation Foundation grant to Emerson College.
Produced in 1955, 1960 and 1966, the films—each running less than 10 minutes—document the opening of Emerson’s Robbins Center in the Communication Sciences and Disorders Department and Thayer Lindsley Nursery.
The two facilities provided clinical training for students in Emerson’s Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, which was one of the first teacher-training programs in speech and hearing therapy established in the United States.
The films provide a historical record of some early CSD treatments and technologies. Betsy Micucci, director of Emerson’s clinical programs, said, “It’s important to be able to reference the early days of treatment, to see how far we’ve come, and to inspire future generations with this ongoing work.”
The films will be available through Emerson’s Archives Department. For further information, contact archives@emerson.edu.
