Convention of American Instructors of the Deaf

The Convention of American Instructors of the Deaf (CAID) is an "organization for all teachers, administrators, educational interpreters, residential personnel, and other concerned professionals involved in education of the deaf." [1]. The CAID held its first convention on August 28, 1850, in New York City, New York, at Washington Heights [2]. The second Convention was held the next year, in 1851, in Hartford, Connecticut and the third Convention was held two years after that, in 1853, in Columbus, Ohio. The fourth Convention met in 1856 in Staunton, Virginia [3]. The Convention continued to meet every couple of years, then became formally incorporated during its Fourteenth meeting, in 1895, in Flint, Michigan.
