Silver Coffee Urn
“Presented Mrs. Sophia F. Gallaudet As a testimonial of affectionately, Remembrance from the scholars of the Columbia Institution For the Deaf & Dumb, Washington, D.C. June 27th, 1866”
This silver coffee urn was presented by the school to Sophia Fowler Gallaudet upon her retirement as first matron in 1866.
This urn was gifted to the school in 1983 by Mrs. Horace (Eilen)Barry with a note to Executive Director Winfield Mc Chord:
“I am so glad you are enjoying the coffee urn. It is now in its rightful place, and it is lovely to have it so appreciated and used”.
