Listen to the CID interview!

Recently, we welcomed Bob Brody, son of 1941 CID school alumnus Irvin Lee Brody, who became a pioneer in helping deaf people use the telephone to communicate. Bob is a widely read essayist whose work has appeared in The Atlantic and The Wall Street Journal, among others. He recently published his memoir, Playing Catch with Strangers: A Family Guy (Reluctantly) Comes of Age (Heliotrope). See below.*

Bob visited St. Louis to see where his father went to school. He met with students, alumni, staff and donors and joined CID executive director Robin Feder on the St. Louis Public Radio live interview program "St. Louis on the Air" with Don Marsh. Listen to the interview. http://custapp.marketvolt.com/link/fNY24MQmgb?CM=1064253194&X=75488257

"We were thrilled to meet Bob, and especially excited when he showed us actual letters his dad wrote home from CID as a boy," Feder said. "It was also quite moving to read a letter from Dr. Goldstein offering to reduce the tuition so Lee's family could afford to send him. We're proud of his contributions, and proud to continue the tradition of accepting students who need us regardless of their families' financial means.

"We've been fortunate to have an amazing, generous community making it possible for children to explore their potential for more than 103 years."
