Robert McGregor gave several signed performances for the collection in 1913.His works The Irishman's Flea and A Lay Sermon demonstrate an alternate but equally classic example of cultural transmission and preservation of Sign Language.The first president of the NAD, McGregor became Deaf at age eight from "brain fever."Raised in Ohio and educated at the Ohio school, McGregor was known for his eloquent signs.He was robust and smooth in his execution, clear and regal.A popular storyteller with literary and dramatic talent, McGregor could perform both the Lord's Prayer and a hilarious tale with verve.McGregor's dedication and courageous spirit defined his career as an educator and activist.Known for his adroit writing skills, McGregor was a bulwark in the defense of Sign Language in schools.As principal at the Ohio School for the Deaf until his death in 1920, McGregor encouraged the hiring of Deaf faculty and advocated Deaf rights in his state and across the nation.Although he never attended or worked at Gallaudet College, the inner sanctum of elite Deaf, McGregor's self-determination and adherence to what he saw as just afforded him a reputation as one of the foremost leaders in the Deaf world (Buff and Blue, 1937).His choices for the film collection succeeded in demonstrating several crucial points.Although his films were never captioned, his presentations were eminently comprehensible.The Lord's Prayer was a common choice among Deaf signers, since the words were commonly known and both Deaf and hearing could thus follow along more readily.By offering a religious lecture in signs, McGregor not only confirmed the historical link between Christian benevolence and Deaf education, but he also promoted the image of Deaf people as honest and moral citizens.His second, humorous performance (also visually accessible even to those with limited Sign Language knowledge) emphasized the secular commonalties.
